Box Tops

McKinley PEP is always collecting Box Tops. Each Box Top we collect gives us 10 cents that goes straight back to our school.

We have a collection box in the office.

EV3 Lego Robotics

After 1 trimester of coding under their belts, one 4th grade class has earned the opportunity to program our five EV3 Lego robots. Students spent 8 weeks in the computer lab understanding how programming works using Google CS-First. Once they completed all the lessons, they were ready to apply their critical thinking and collaboration skills on the robots in the STEM lab. Students were given design and programming challenges and you can see their work in the photo album.

Fall Newsletter

Dear McKinley Families,

Thank you to a wonderful start to our 2016-17 school year. In the short amount of time that has flown by, lots of activity has taken place. If you would like to know more about what activities have taken place or more information about the services that are provided to your children, please read our Fall Newsletter. You can find it under the Parent tab in the main menu or simply click on the heading to find a link.

Coding at McKinley

Thanks to our 1:1 technology in the classroom, we have the opportunity to repurpose our scheduled computer lab time. We are introducing some of our 4th and 5th grade classrooms and Newcomers to coding. Students will learn critical thinking skills to solve problems and prepare them for technological opportunities in the 21st century. Our goal is to start with the upper grade students and then eventually introduce 2nd and 3rd grader in the coming year if not sooner. This will prepare them to program our Lego robots that are waiting in the STEM lab. The entire curriculum is provided by Google through their cs-first.com website and will start on October 18th.
