WE APPRECIATE OUR MCKINLEY VOLUNTEERS!

Hi McKinley Parents,


McKinley has some amazing volunteers! The success of McKinley rests on the support and dedication of parent and community volunteers. We appreciate the time and talents of our volunteers-- accompanying kids on field trips, attending PTA events, and supporting staff, students and each other.


For a list of our current volunteer opportunities, see below. More are listed on the Volunteer Form. Our website also includes a Volunteer Page CLICK HERE.


If you have any questions, you can reach me through my district e-mail address at jmason@cr.k12.ia.us.


I am looking forward to a fantastic school year and thank you for your support!

BEAR PAW STORE

BEAR PAW STORE

We are looking for volunteers to help run the Bear Paw Store on Tuesday's, Wednesday's and Thursday's after school from 2:55 to 3:15 pm. For those not familiar with the Bear Paw Program, students earn bear paws for exemplifying the BEAR way (Be engaged, Empathetic, Accountable, Respectful). They can use bear paws for various incentives including pizza parties on Friday's as well as purchasing items at the Bear Paw Store.


Volunteer(s) should arrive between 2:30-2:40 p.m. Please sign in at the attendance center and then stop at the main office and ask Mrs. Pei or Mrs. Harken to open the bear paw store which is located across from the band room on first floor. There is very little set up and training will be provided if needed. Staff will also be volunteering.

MAGAZINE SALES

We will be kicking off magazine sales on September 17. Magazine sales is our school's largest fundraiser. All monies go directly to McKinley and are used to support student activities such as end-of-year field trips. We are asking for volunteers to help process magazine orders the mornings of 9/25 and 10/2.

If you have any questions, please respond to this e-mail. Thank you for your support!

PARENT READERS

Mrs. Wilson, 6th grade teacher, is looking for volunteers to read with a small group of students twice a month during the school day. If you are interested, please respond to this e-mail. Once school starts, she will contact the volunteers with days/times. Also include your availability. This is also a great volunteer opportunity for a grandparent.
