Principal's Message

Dear McKinley Families,


Summer is right around the corner and what an incredible year of "higher learning" it has been for our Bulldogs. On behalf of the staff, we would like to thank you for your continued support of our students and school community. It has been such a terrific year and we would like to especially thank our PTA President, Jennifer Kulin, and V.P., Kristen Moran, for their partnership throughout the year. Additionally, the support of the PTA Executive Committee, the Dad's Club, BCE, and our parent volunteers who have made McKinley an awesome community school. We would also like to thank Joanna Storey, our eDog Webmaster, who has each week posted up to the minute school, district and PTA announcements.


Field Day - What Fun!

A HUGE round of applause to Zack Nelson and his team of parent volunteers who facilitate an incredible fun Field Day on Tuesday. Zack organized a circuit of athletic events the challenged the students to practice teamwork, coordination, and agility. Way to go! I know that Mr. Nelson is already planning next year's Field Day!


5th Grade Promotion

We congratulate our 5th graders on their promotion to middle school. Remember, "Once a Bulldog, Always a Bulldog!"
