- McKinney ISD has cut $4.7 million to help address state funding cuts (11% of administrative and support staff, 4% of teachers)
- TRE would raise the funds or McKinney ISD will need to cut an additional $10.7 million in staff and programs

1 Novel a Month!
"Grobe's Giving Group" Serving Our Community
Our mission, at McGowen, this year is to focus on the positive character traits each individual should display! Each month we will focus on a certain character trait and help our students understand what it means to possess and own that trait as part of who they are! I would like to take this one step further and incorporate community service opportunities for my students. Kids have the power to make a huge difference in the world around us and I think my students can start a movement that will span further than just McGowen! Please join in my efforts each month to serve our city and display those character traits we are focusing on. You will be receiving an email with full details about our attempt at making some positive changes in our community!
