Hello McKinley Family!
We are officially in the testing season as ISTEP is underway for all our 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. Parents please continue to do your part in supporting your child by having your students at school and ready to learn by 8:10. We continue to struggle with a high number of tardies and students being picked up early which is costing our children precious instructional minutes. Learning takes place from 8:10 – 3:00 every day and we want all our students to be here each day for the entire time.
A special thanks to all our teachers and paras who have worked so hard all year preparing students for the high-stakes tests they are taking, and congratulations to our ENL students who recently completed their WIDA assessment. McKinley students make us proud when they show what they know!
Congratulations also to McKinley’s boys and girls basketball teams. Thanks to our coaches for providing the opportunity to learn teamwork and sportsmanship as they competed against their peers from around East Chicago. We look forward to the same from our volleyball teams and the Science Olympiad teams that have been or soon will be practicing for their competitions.
Finally, as you’ve likely heard, our East Chicago community will vote on a referendum on May 2nd. Parents and other community members with questions about the referendum are invited to visit the SCEC website to learn more details.
Be sure to also check out McKinley’s webpage to see an online copy of the McKinley Times, as well as other McKinley specific information, including the Spring Break dates of 27 – March 31. As we move towards the final third of the school year, I look forward to seeing our students continuing to learn and continuing to be Ready, Respectful, and Responsible like McKinley Cardinals are.
