Spring 2017 Jog-a-thon

One of the Biggest (and Funnest) School Fundraising Events of the Year!

Friday, March 17, 2017

img_6367The McKinley Parent Teacher Club’s JOG-A-THON is one of our school’s biggest fundraisers and your support is vital. Most importantly, this is the only event where the kids take the lead in raising money for their school. Please visit the Jog-a-thon page to learn more about how your child can participate and qualify for some cool prizes!

T-Shirts are now available! Volunteers will be selling t-shirts before and after school next week. (Check calendar for details.) You can also order your 2017 Jog-a-Thon T-Shirt online and have it delivered to your child’s classroom.


TB Test for McKinley Volunteers

Need a TB test?
All McKinley volunteers are required to have an up-to-date TB test (within 4 years) to be a regular volunteer on campus.

Our local South Park Doctor, Dr. Tara Zandvliet, is offering to provide TB tests for just $10 (cost of supplies).

She will be across the street from McKinley at 3020 Felton Street on Wednesday, 10/5 from 7:30 – 9:00am for the skin prick and again on Friday, 10/7 from 7:30 – 9:00am for the reading. You must plan for BOTH days so mark your calendars! Click here for more details and ver aquí en Español.

Save the Date: Green Day May 14th

The date is set for our spring Green Day, so mark your calendars for May 14, 9am-4pm.

The McKinley Beautification Committee has a Green Day several times a year. Some of our projects this time include:

  • Weeding and planting in the garden
  • Installing rain barrels
  • Art project for the kids
  • Cleaning up around campus
  • Finishing our new tool shed
  • Installing new tiles created this year by students
  • And giving our school some tender loving care!

This is a great opportunity to meet other McKinley families and keep our school looking awesome. No skills or experience necessary! Don’t forget your hat, sunscreen, and to wear comfy clothes that can get messy! See you there!

In the meantime, bring your clean, empty plastic water bottles to the bin in front of the office to be turned into a fabulous art project.
