McCandless Elementary - 2018-2019


We sold almost 600 items, that is three times the amount we sold last year! Thank you for all the help and support you provided your children in order to meet and surpass our school goal! Don't forget Red Wheel pick up is in the cafeteria on March 14th from 2:00-6:00.


We are doing Spring pictures a little differently this year. Instead of you paying for them prior to picture day, we will run it just like we do in the fall in which a proof is sent home and you are able to purchase the pictures you would like as a family. Our spring pictures and class pictures will be on Friday, March 15th!

Weather Changes

As the weather warms up, we see lots of activity on the playground in the evenings and on the weekends. Please remember that students are to be picked up or are to walk home from school directly after school. Students are not to play on the equipment unsupervised until after 5pm. This is for the safety of your child, we do not have school personnel on site to monitor the activity of students after school hours.

State Assessments

Students in grades 3-6 will be participating in math and reading state assessments during the month of March and April. In addition, grade 5 will be participating in the science assessment. We believe that we have prepared our students all year for the assessments and do not do anything different the week of assessments. We will do our best at school to maintain the same routine as possible in order to help our students be successful.
