Buy Your Plants at Shady Lane Greenhouses
In place of an in-person plant sale, the McKinley PTO is partnering with Shady Lane Greenhouses in Menomonee Falls to offer a fundraising option for 2021:
- Visit Shady Lane Greenhouse to make your plant and garden purchases
- When checking out, tell the cashier you are with McKinley Elementary
- The McKinley PTO will receive 25% from all in-store purchases of regularly priced merchandise
- Program runs April through June 30, 2021

New Family Mentor Program Volunteers Needed
In order to make this program successful, we are in need of veteran McKinley families to volunteer to be mentor families this year. The time commitment is minimal and the impact is lasting. Please consider becoming a Mentor Family by contacting Paige Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
