SAVE HY-VEE RECEIPTS FOR MCKINLEY

Recently Hy-Vee presented award checks to all schools participating in the Cash 4 Students fundraising program. McKinley's check was for 1409.89! A huge thank you for all the students, families, and staff that turned in their Hy-Vee receipts. McKinley will continue in the program so keep saving your receipts! We will accept receipts from April 1, 2018 until March 31 of 2019. Feel free to drop off receipts this summer to the main office. For more details, please see the flyer below. Encourage family members, friends, and your co-workers to save receipts for McKinley, too! Thanks for your support.


How is the Money Spent?

Money from the Hy-Vee Cash 4 Student program is used towards purchasing items for the bear paw store. For those new to McKinley, we believe in acknowledging students for exemplifying the BEAR way. Our positive acknowledgement system centers on the use of BEAR paws. Students can use BEAR paws for various incentives including pizza parties on Friday’s as well as purchasing items at the BEAR paw store.
