McAllister Minutes

This past week our 3rd and 5th grade students had an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the GSE's by taking part in the GMAS - This coming week our 4th grade students will have the opportunity to do the same! A BIG thank you to ALL of our staff and students for exhibiting superb PAWS behavior throughout the school to ensure our testing environment was optimal!


The week ahead is ALL about YOU! The week ahead is the National Teacher Appreciation Week! This week we take a moment to pause, show thanks and appreciate you for ALL that you do to make McAllister great as INCREDIBLE Educators! We know that in order to truly appreciate all that you do it would take much more than a week, but we hope that you feel pampered, loved & appreciated this week ahead.


With an intentional focus of consistency on being curious & crazy for kids you will ALWAYS find a culture that is student focused!


Have a great week!
