Attention New Students!!

We’re very excited to welcome our new McKinley Families for the 2014-15 school year!  Please note the following upcoming activities:

  • New Student Summer Play Date (last one) is this Sunday, Aug. 24th, 4:00 p.m. at Montclair Park.  Bring a snack to share and hang out with other McKinley families.
  • Kindergarten Assessments:  The K & 1st grade teachers will start calling parents this week, but appointments may go into next week.  This is a very brief visit where the teachers ask the child a few questions.  (Low stress, I promise.)

McKinley Elementary On-site Before and After School Childcare Needs Questionnaire

 

McKinley Elementary is gauging interest in expanding on-site before and after school childcare options.  This includes adding a fee-based alternative option to the current Primetime program, but would not be replacing Primetime.

If there is enough interest to fill the program, we will work towards opening a licensed fee based program on campus.

If you are interested in the new McKinley Character Builders Program, please take a moment to complete this online survey:
