Save the Date for the Fun Run! Friday October 2, 2015

The annual Fun Run is quickly approaching! The event will take place on Friday October 2, 2015. This is the school's biggest fundraiser of the year. The goal this year is $12,000. Ask your students what happens to Mr. Pitner if we make our goal! :)

Students will have 20 minutes to run as many laps as they can around the track. They can collect flat donations or pledges per lap. Watch your Wednesday Weekly folders for more information. Email McKinleyPTM@gmail.com for more information.

Gentle Reminders:

Going Home Plans – Please try to communicate alternative going home plans for your child via a note sent to your child’s teacher. We get very busy in the office…and can’t guarantee that all messages get to classrooms if there is an emergency. We understand the occasional “late notice,” but often times we are communicating prearranged plans that could have been sent in a note to the child’s teacher. IF YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE GOING HOME PLANS, YOU MUST DO SO BEFORE 2:00. Thanks for your help with this!!


Sign In – In order to ensure your child’s safety, ALL parents, volunteers, and visitors must enter the building through the front doors, sign in, and wear identification in the building. We also ask that you honor the integrity of our instructional program by prearranging for volunteer activities, observations, and/or visits to the classroom. We are very excited for you to become a part of our school community.


Picking Your Child Up Early – Please do not pick your child up between 2:30 and 3:00. Although it is close to the end of our day, remember that this is an important time in your child’s classroom. Teachers are reviewing key concepts taught throughout the day, reviewing homework, & making important announcements! Thanks!
