Moving over the Summer?

If you are not returning to Deretchin/McCullough for the 2020-2021 school year please email Cory Ognisty (Registrar) at In the email include your child/s Student Id number(not their name) and where your child will be attending. This can be what country, state or name of the school. Current 6th graders not attending McCullough next year, please let me know, so I can withhold records sent to McCullough, otherwise this will delay records requests for your new school.

Where are YOU on the Roller Coaster?

This roller coaster is called "The Reality Ride" for a reason! Life is full of bumps and problems -some we can control, and many that we can't. When things get hard, remember only YOU can choose which track you take - the "Easy-Fast" track or the "Harder But Worth It" track. When we crash, we ALWAYS have the ability and choice to get back on the ride and start again. Look closely at the Harder But Worth It it always smooth and easy? No! But that is the only track where you have support - from parent, family, teachers, and counselor :)


Stay safe and make good choices, Dragons!
