Big Brothers Big Sisters on Campus

Students at McKinley Elementary School have the opportunity to participate in the School Based Mentoring program of Big Brothers Big Sisters. In the program, a child is "matched" with a volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister from high school. The volunteer will visit once a week on Tuesdays or Fridays to spend about one hour per week with your child reading, working on schoolwork, relationship building activities, playing games, sports, etc. The activities will take place after school, not outside the school grounds. If you would like your child to have this opportunity, please click the link for an application and 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. You can find the box tops on grocery items such as cereals, ziplock bags, snacks, and various canned goods, as well as many other products. If you find any of these labels, please bring them in. We have a collection box in the office.

Home & School Connection

McKinley provides parents monthly practical tips through the Home & School Connection publication. It gives parents additional tools so they can:
* show interest in their child’s education
* nurture respect and responsibility
* boost motivation
* support homework and study habits
* promote good behavior and self-discipline
* build empathy and put an end to bullying
* improve academic achievement
* communicate effectively with teachers
You can find this monthly publication in your child's homework folder or under the Parent Resource tab of our website.
