Chinese Language Development Program

Dear Parents,

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Mind Quest Learning to bring a Chinese Language Development Program to McKinley Elementary. This is an after school tuition based program. We piloted it in the 3rd trimester of last school year with the 4th and 5th graders and it was very successful. Beginning in the Fall, we would like to expand it to include the 2nd and 3rd graders. For more information about the program, please click on the heading.

Annual Wellness Report

The San Gabriel Unified School District is committed to providing safe and healthful school environments that promote and protect students’ health, well-being and ability to learn by supporting healthful eating and physical activity. The first annual survey of district staff, students, and parents was conducted in the fall of 2016 to assess school progress on District Wellness Policy goals. To see the results, please click on the headline and download the report.

5th Grade Promotion

Congratulations to all our 5th grade graduates. Thank you for being a part of the McKinley family and an awesome Mustang. We will miss you as you make your journey to Jefferson Middle School. Also, a BIG THANK YOU to all the 5th grade parents. We could not have been successful without your support. We hope you have enjoyed your time with us and we will see you soon. Photos from promotion will be available soon.

Young Story Tellers - The Big Show

McKinley students had the opportunity to make their imaginations become reality this past Friday, April 28, 2017. For the past few months, they worked very hard with their Big Brother and Big Sister in partnership with Young Story Tellers on writing and fine tuning their stories to have it acted out. Young Story Tellers have a simple mission and that is to inspire young people to discover the power of their voice. Using one-on-one mentorship, students learn how to write original stories and see them brought to life on stage.

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.
