On the behalf of McKinley School Staff I would like to welcome you to the 2012-2013 school year. I am very excited about all the great things we have planned for this year.
McKinley School is a K-2 school where our staff can focus on the needs of our younger students.
Our school vision is IMPACT.
I = Inspire
We believe our students impact our lives, just as much as we impact theirs. At McKinley we strive for excellence, and want every child to achieve success. Our staff is dedicated to giving your child the best possible education. The staff provides standards-based instruction using board-adopted curriculum. This year we will also be using Data Director to help us meet academic needs of each individual student.
We strongly encourage and invite each of our parents to participate in their child’s education. This year we will have a volunteer workshop for every parent who thinks they might want to volunteer at school. During the workshop you will learn tips on assisting students with class work, be given a nametag, learn about sign in procedures, and many other helpful things.
A monthly school newsletter is sent home to help keep families informed of school activities. Annually we host many activities including Back to School Night, Literacy Nights, Christmas Programs, a Fall Carnival, Dr. Seuss Night, and many more with the help of our PTA. Joining PTA is a great way for parents to be involved in their child’s education. Our PTA is very active, and is a great supporter of all McKinley School activities.
McKinley School, in cooperation with Lassen County Office of Education, has an on-campus after school program called our Bulldog Adventure Club. Our after school program staff helps students with homework and with areas where they are struggling, and also teaches fun enrichment activities.
McKinley Staff is determined to have an IMPACT on every McKinley Bulldog!!!!
