Chess Masters Enrichment at McKinley

We are pleased to announce that we are bringing Chess Masters back to McKinley after the holidays. Chess is a game of strategy which promotes critical thinking and your child will have the opportunity to be a part of it. In order to get the program started, we will need a minimum of 15 students to register; however, there is no maximum. It will be hosted after school from 1:35pm-2:25pm on certain Wednesdays beginning January 17, 2018. Applications will be sent home with your child in their Thursday folders or you may pick one up in the office. You may also register online. Just click on the heading for more information.

McKinley "Happy Trash"

We so excited to see what the McKinley Mustangs are going to design, create, make and innovate this year! Many of the projects they design include recyclable materials that students are able to use their creativity to put to great use. One area will be dedicated to building with recycled materials. For this area to expand, we’d love your help! Just send recycled materials you have lying around to school with your child. (Please completely wash out containers such as yogurt containers and milk jugs before sending them). Do not purchase any materials. This will be an ongoing experience for K-5, so feel free to send throughout the year! For more information, click on the heading.

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.
