We’d love to encourage parent attendance at our annual Jog-a-thon and have opted to cancel our March 17th Family Friday.

November Dine-Out at Pete’s Seafood – Thursday, 11/17 from 12pm-9pm.
McKinley will receive 20% of the total cost of your order. Pete’s will honor the flyer on your phone. In fact, he says just let them know you’re with McKinley! See you there!
Also that night, our friends at Roosevelt Middle School PTSA will be holding a fundraiser at Thorn Street Brewery, 5-8pm. Stop by and enjoy a brew on your walk home from Pete’s. This event benefits the mosaic mural project they are working toward.
Your help and support with securing federal funding for our school would be greatly appreciated.
Each year, our district receives over $8 million in Impact Aid funding. This is not automatic – we must apply for it each year. The U.S. Department of Education requires that a survey be conducted each year and our district then files a claim based on the cards received. This process precludes us from using enrollment cards for this purpose so completing the Federal Survey Cards is critical.
These will be sent home on Wednesday and we ask that they are completed by each and every family in our school community. Please return completed forms to us on or before Wednesday, October 12th. (One card per family)
Those classes that have 100% of their cards returned will win a popsicle party (with heartfelt gratitude from their very appreciative principal).
With thanks in advance,
Just a friendly reminder that Back to School Night starts tonight at 5:30 PM! More details and the agenda here. We hope to see you there!
