Hello McKinley family!
A reminder that our Field Day is scheduled for this Friday, June 2. Should the weather not permit us to celebrate on that day, we will reschedule for the following Monday. Parents, we are still in need of your support to help make Field Day a success. Please consider volunteering to help work a station, or by donating a case of water and/or bag of ice. Please contact the school if you are interested in contributing. With your help, we can make Field Day a great time for all McKinley students. Be aware that due to Field Day arrangements the playground will not be available for dropping off or picking up students, so make alternate plans for that day only.
Awards Day will take place next week. Grades 3 and 4 will have their ceremony next Tuesday at 9:00, Kindergarten, 1 and 2 will have their ceremony next Tuesday at 1:30, and 5 and 6 will have their ceremony next Wednesday at 9:00.
Next Thursday, June 8 is the last day of the school year. It is a half day so please make arrangements to pick up your child at 11:15. The playground will not be available for pickup that day either.
Finally, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to everybody for helping make this year a success. We are not without challenges, and we certainly aren't perfect people, but the hard work and support from so many McKinley students, teachers, parents and community members have made a positive impact. We hope everybody has a great and safe summer, and we look forward to seeing you back at McKinley in the fall to continue the good things we are all so proud of in this building.
Mr. David A. Alvarado
Principal, McKinley Elementary School
