McKinley Elementary and the San Gabriel Fire Department are teaming up to raise toys for families that are less fortunate. Please bring an unwrapped toy to donate from December 2nd - 20th. There are boxes inside the main office for your convenience. The classroom that donates the most toys will earn a pizza party with the San Gabriel Fire Fighters. The fire department will be at Mckinley Wednesday, December 20th at 10am to pick up the toys with their fire engine. Thank you for your generous donations.
Santa Claus is coming to town! Please have a Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 14th from 9:00am-12:00pm. This year, the event is free to McKinley families. Come to enjoy some yummy pancakes and sausages, have fun doing crafts with friends, sing your favorite Christmas songs, and take a picture with Santa. Please click on the heading for tickets.
