I'm just sending a reminder that this Monday is our Welcome Night. It will be a time to get to know what McKinley PEP is all about, meet other McKinley parents, and find ways to get involved at our school. We will be providing food. I hope you will be able to make it! Please tell your friends about it as well. We would love to see a big turn out.
Also, if you would like, please bring a dessert to share.
Picture Day will be on Thursday September 26th. You can either order photos online or using the order form that will be sent home. If a student is absent, make-up pictures will be taken November 7th. Remember to look your best and smile!

We are excited to announce that we are continuing our partnership with Mind Quest Learning to bring a Chinese Language Development Program to McKinley Elementary.

Students will learn to cook Mediterranean classics in this fun, hands-on cooking class. Mediterranean food is considered one of the healthiest cuisines in the world because it focuses on lean proteins, healthy fats, and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables without sacrificing flavor. Students will learn to expand their palates, try new foods and learn a variety of fast, easy recipes they can make at home. Class will be taught by chefs and students will learn recipes from Greece, North Africa, Spain, Italy and more!
All recipes are nut-free and have vegetarian options. This session includes: Couscous Salad, Homemade Pita Bread, Beef and Veggie Kabobs, Quinoa Salad, the "Chocolate Cookie" Roll and more!
A digital cookbook will be emailed to each student so they can recreate the recipes at home!
On the last day of class, parents will be invited to the Kid Restaurant, where the parents can see what their kids learned during the session. Get hungry to learn the art of cooking!
