PACS @ McKinley Newsletter
May 3rd- 7th
Teacher Appreciation Week is the First Week of May
The connections they made with new students, even in the virtual world was truly amazing. The transition was seamless when we headed back into the classroom and this was a tribute to the relationships that they worked so hard to build.
Thank You from the bottom of my heart for all that you do to make McKinley great!
Show Our Teachers Your Appreciation!
It’s Teacher Appreciation Week, May 3 to May 7!
This is the week where students and parents can celebrate and appreciate all that the teachers and staff do for us at McKinley School.
We have gathered some ideas of things you can do everyday to show your appreciation. You certainly do not have to do any of these things or do them everyday.
