McAllister Minutes

The last full week of the 2017-2018 school year is upon us! It seems like just yesterday that we all loaded the Big Yellow Cheese and were headed to convocation in preparation for this INCREDIBLE year! Your input this year has most certainly created valued-added output; our students are achieving INCREDIBLE things because of ALL the work you have poured into this school year. Let's be sure to continue to give our best as we round out the #BESTYEARYET!


With an intentional focus of consistency on being curious & crazy for kids you will ALWAYS find a culture that is student focused!
