From the Principal - March Parent Teacher Conferences Were Successful Thanks to Your Efforts!
I am happy to say that we had many families who participated in the March Parent Teacher conferences. McKinley teacher's report a 95% attendance rate. This is fantastic! Our parents and teachers working together make a wonderful team in helping our students to succeed!
We want to extend our appreciation to the PTA for providing staff with an evening conference meal. Thank you for taking such good care of us on these important extended days!

McKinley fifth grader, Jesse Sisco and fourth grader, Dorothy Sorenson are featured in the exhibition and will attend the School Spirit Art Reception on Sunday, March 13 from 1-4 p.m. Jesse made an identity shield; a Native American craft which symbolizes an individuals life with a symbol for a wish, something or someone special to them, a special event, and a hobby.
