Parent Conferences

Principal's Message

This was a short week, but our bulldogs were busy! We had our Veterans Day assembly on Tuesday. Thank you to our classes who practiced for several weeks and did an amazing performance. I am so very proud!

Parent conferences are the week of November 15-19. School will be dismissed at 1:35 each day to allow for parent conferences. Remember our goal is to meet with the parents of EVERY student. Thank you for taking the time to meet with your child's teacher to learn about the progress your child is making this year..

If you have not already done so, please use this link to complete the California Healthy Kids Parent Survey. This survey will be open until November 19.

Thank you to all the veterans in our community!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ms. Cockerill

Veterans Day Assembly

On Tuesday we had our Veterans Day Assembly. What a special event. The classes who performed did a wonderful job! Every student received an American flag thanks to the Indian Valley American Legion.

What Our Bulldogs Are Learning

Each week we want to highlight some of the learning happening in our classrooms. The first graders in Mrs. Bonilla-Chicas's classroom got a visit from Slow Down Snail as part of a lesson on learning to focus attention. They also worked on a poem about reading. Mrs. Celum's kindergarten class drew pictures of veterans and they learned and recited a poem about veterans.

Staff Feature

Each week we will use this section to introduce you to our staff at McKinley. This week we continue to introduce to you our teachers.

Mrs. Erica Law--Kindergarten

Mrs. Law has been teaching kindergarten at McKinley for four years. She taught at Meadow View one year before coming to our site. This is her 19th year in education. Mrs. Law loves teaching kindergarten and seeing her students faces light up when they learn something new. Her favorite subject to teach is reading because she enjoys so many different authors of children's books. Mrs. Law attended McKinley elementary when she was in elementary school. In fact, Room 7 where she teaches is the same classroom that she was in during second grade and Mrs. Busher was her teacher. Mrs. Law remembers that Mrs. Busher always used fun things to teach math. Thank you, Mrs. Law for all you do for our students!
