Week of Monday, November 14 - Friday, November 18

Dear PACS Community,

During this time of year, we are reminded to pause, reflect, and remember the things in our life we are thankful for. Our McKinley community is one I am truly grateful for! We are a group that supports one another, stands up for what is right, and celebrates our diversity and all of the things that make us unique. The students and families bring so much life and excitement to our community. Our staff supports our school in every possible way and I feel so fortunate for every member of our community.

I hope you all take time to rest, reflect, enjoy time with family and friends, and find some time to engage in something that rejuvenates you.

Holiday Giving Program

Every year, our community at McKinley comes together to lend a helping hand to our families that could use some extra help or support during the holiday season.

All McKinley/PACS families are invited to stop by the Holiday Giving Board and pick a tag for an item that one of our sponsored families wishes to receive during the holidays. The holiday board will be out starting Wednesday, November 30th; before and after school. An online volunteer link will be available after we return from Fall Break. There will be many tags available, and all gifts are due back by Monday, December 12th at the office. All gifts must be wrapped and the original tag must be attached.

Questions? Contact the coordinators.
