Principal's Christmas Reflection
Teacher Feature - Mrs. Hamman
I have spent the majority of my time in Kindergarten and First grade at McKinley School. Both of my parents were teachers, so growing up “school” was always a topic of conversation in my home. Education and the importance of it has always been a central theme in my life. The best part of teaching is by far, the connection you make with students. Seeing their little faces light up and knowing that what you do matters is the best. I am so thankful for this job that I love and my McKinley School family.
Let's Keep Everyone Healthy and Our School Open
1. Screen your child for symptoms each morning before sending them to school.
2. Keep your child home for at least 3 days if they are not feeling well - sick children should not be at school regardless of the cause of the illness.
3. Keep the lines of communication with the school open - we all want what is best for your child and working together we can accomplish that!

CHARACTER TRAIT OF THE MONTH
In this challenge, you will work together to craft a story about an unforgettable neighbor named Junior. Starting with, “I’ll never forget Junior,” everyone takes turns adding details to bring Junior’s fictional story to life. Pop in when you’ve got a detail you want to add. It’ll be fun to see where this delicious tale takes you.
If you want, write it down as you go! Leave room for illustrations. Who knows? You just may want to get this one published!
