Remote Learning at McKinley!

As we are all adjusting to our new Remote Classrooms, the structure may look different, but the expectations have not changed. Please know that we are here for you. This is a time when schools can continue to provide stability and optimism. I have witnessed kindness, grace and empathy during these challenging days. Teachers have transferred learning experiences with love and care needed to support the academic and emotional needs for our students. Again, we are here for you! See below for remote learning at MKS!

Mrs. Strehl's Class

The learners in the sunflower field have been working hard and having fun with their learning. They have been working on their language arts and math pages (They have finished their first big three week packet on Friday, April 17 and will be starting there ”Getting ready for kindergarten” packet on Monday) as well as doing some fun activities. The fun activities consist of things like - looking for three dimensional shapes around their home, creating a ramp to see how different ramps work, music classes with Mrs. Luu and most recently, tracing their shadows and watching how it changes throughout the day.

Special Delivery!

A big shout out to Mrs. Strehl who delivered some school supply packages to the homes of her students. Thank you Mrs. Strehl!

Harry Potter Book Club Scavenger Hunt

They did a super fun virtual scavenger hunt for my students in my class and for my Harry Potter Book Club! They were put on teams and had to take photos and videos of themselves completing ridiculous and creative missions! It was great to see kids as young as kinder all the way to 7th grade participate in sometime fun and educational!
