News and Notes from the Principal!
It is hard to believe that the end of the 2017-2018 school year is upon us. This school year brought many incredible opportunities for our students to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. The level of learning that has taken place at McAllister ES over the past 170+ days is second to none. We appreciate you entrusting us to care for your children, educate your children and most importantly love your children daily!
It is no secret that Richmond Hill is continuing to grow, and this includes McAllister. We are very excited about the new rock star teachers we are adding to our faculty for next school year to accommodate our growth—we now have more than 1,200 students entering our doors each day! For this reason, we will NOT honor teacher requests for class placement for the upcoming school year. It simply is not feasible. However, we are committed to making sure that all students are most appropriately placed as we consider the “whole” child during the scheduling process.
These last few days are filled with great hustle and bustle, so please be sure to stay abreast of our upcoming events to join us when you are able. Please connect to our REMIND by texting @mesupdates to 81010. This feature allows McAllister to notify parents of upcoming events, deadlines, etc.
