Mon. Feb. 29th through Friday March 4th

Introducing McKinley's first annual Dr. Seuss themed Spirit Week leading up to our traditional Parade of Books to celebrate READ ACROSS AMERICA!! Every day leading up to the Parade of Books will have a different theme based on a Dr. Seuss book! See pictures below for details!


The Parade of Books is on Friday, March 4th beginning at 8:45. Classes will line the halls as the Cat in the Hat leads the parade through the school halls. Each class will join the parade as the line passes by their classroom. Students bring a book and dress up like a character in the book! We encourage students to keep costumes simple! Do not run out and spend money on a costume. If there is a mouse in the book, have your student cut out large mouse ears to wear on their head. Be creative!! THE MOST IMPORTANT PROP FOR THE PARADE OF BOOKS is A BOOK!!!
