MCKINLEY STEAM ACADEMY
January 8, 2021
These 6th graders got schooled during "recess" by UNO Grand Champion Mr Martinez.
7th graders observed rime ice during a movement break. Water vapor from today’s fog stuck to freezing surfaces, creating magical ice crystals everywhere.

HY-VEE CASH 4 STUDENTS UPDATE
How to Turn in Receipts:
Student can give receipts to their advisory teacher.
You can drop off receipts to McKinley, M-F, from 7:30 to 4:00. Just call when you arrive, and someone will come and meet you.
Send your receipts electronically. To sign up for electronic receipts, go to https://www.hy-vee.com/perks/ (Opens in a new window). Once you log in, it will bring you to your customer profile. Towards the bottom of the first column, it will ask you if you want to receive a digital receipt. Click yes. E-mail your electronic Hy-Vee receipt to Mckhyvee@gmail.com (Opens in a new window).
The program for this year runs April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021.
Ask friends, neighbors, relatives, co-workers to collect receipts for McKinley. It's not too late to start collecting and turning in receipts.
I am assuming the program will continue past March 31, so keep collecting receipts.
