  • McKinley Students Show School Spirit Through Kindness

    Posted by Amanda Voorhees on 4/2/2021

    During the month of March, McKinley elementary students learned about being kind to others.  They celebrated at the end of the month with a kindness spirit week.  They were encouraged to dress in a different color each day representing various traits of kindness.  They also created a "kindness pinwheel" as a representation of the kindness they were sending out into their community each day.  Thank you Mrs. Kinley for putting together our Kindness Spirit Week.

  • Books from The Conscious Kid

    Posted by Amanda Voorhees on 3/5/2021 10:30:00 AM

    The Anti-Racist Children's Book Education Fund provides classrooms around the country with access to books and resources that support important conversations about race, racism, and resilience.  These books affirm students from Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, while also empowering youth from all backgrounds to take action against racism and injustice. 

    There is considerable reseach showing that empowering representation, paired with content that specifically names and addresses race and racism, have positive academic and social outcomes for students of all races.  Children's books are one of the most practical and effective tools for initiaing these critical converstations with children, and can also be used to model what it means to resist and disrupt oppression. 

    McKinley Elementary wants to thank The Conscious Kid for the beautiful books that were provided to our classrooms.  We will spend this month highlighting different books that tie in with our character word of the month, Kindness. books from the conscious kid Books from The Conscious Kid

  • Yay Mega-Super-Participaters!

    Posted by Al Fischer on 2/1/2021

    The specialists at McKinley Elementary School would like to give a shout out to our Mega-Super-Participaters

    Student working at his computer

     All specialist classes this year (Library, Counselor, PE and Music) are being taught asynchronously at our school, which means that it’s up to the student to connect to our lessons, do their best to complete them, and then click submit.  Many students find this to be a challenge, juggling their other classwork along with home duties, and making sure they save time to do their specialist lessons.

    152 students were Super-Participaters in the first half of the school year, turning in all (or almost all) of their assignments for many of their specialist classes, and we appreciate all of their hard work.  There were some, though, who were Mega-Super-Participators, turning in all (or almost all) of their work for all four specialists classes!!

  • McKinley Elementary STEAM Week

    Posted by Amanda Voorhees on 12/1/2020

    During conference week, McKinley students focused on all things STEAM!  The paraprofessionals, specialists, and support staff facilitated a new STEAM lesson each day throughout the week.  This gave k-5 classroom teachers the opportunity to solely focus on parent teacher conferences throughout their day.  This was a successful week for all, we held nearly 98% of our conferences, had the highest participation rate from parents on our CEE survey, and students participated in science, engineering and art related lessons.  Students were also challenged to get caught up on work they may have missed previously.  What an exciting, record breaking week for student attendance, engagement and assignment completion.  Check out some of their work below.

  • Annual Turkey Trot Held Virtually

    Posted by Amanda Voorhees on 12/1/2020

    Turkey Trot Grand Prize Winners

    On November 23rd, McKinley Elementary held their annual Turkey Trot drawing.  Students and families entered into the drawing for 1 of 24 turkey dinners with all the trimmings by getting out of the house and walking around their neighborhood.  McKinley's annual Turkey Trot is coordinated by PE teacher Bob Oliphant, to promote health and fitness.  Even though this year's trot looked a bit different there were still 215 students who participated with their families for a chance to win.  This year a grand prize was added, which was a remote control monster truck along with the turkey dinner for some additional family fun. Thank you to Ms. Lupe, Miss Yakare, and Mrs. Mercado for all of your hard work getting the baskets ready.   Thank you to OIC, Trinity Family Fellowship, and St. Paul's Cathedral for donating the turkeys and food for our baskets.  Thank you to Superintendent Greene for joining in the fun to help announce the drawing winners.  Congratulations to the 24 families who won a turkey dinner this year!
