Dear McKinley Families,
Wednesday night's 4/5 Concert was sensational! This year's theme - That's Entertainment delighted us with music from many of our favorite movies including Mission Impossible, Star Wars, and Linus and Lucy. Our Bulldog Choir's performance was just amazing - the songs, the performance, the narrators, and the solos made the evening so wonderful. We appreciate all the efforts that Mr. Collaros, Mr. Doug and Mrs. Yamamoto gave throughout the year developing our students into incredible performers. Thank you for supporting BCE and making our music program possible for our students.
Lions Club Award
Each year the Lions Club gives an award to an employee at each of the Burlingame School District schools who goes above and beyond in their duties. Our staff nominated Mrs. Kiela Conway in recognition of her outstanding role as our BCE aide for the 4th and 5th grade students. Mrs. Conway has worked extremely hard to meet the diverse needs of our students, especially our second language learners. She motives and encourages all students to succeed. We congratulate and thank Mrs. Conway on this very deserving award.
Open House - Wednesday, June 1
Please join us in celebration of a terrific year of "Higher Learning" at Open House next Wednesday - June 1 from 7:00 to 8:00. All classrooms will be open, and we encourage you to come early to drop by the Scholastic Book Fair in the Library.
Minimum Day - Friday, June 3
A reminder that next Friday is a minimum day - students in K-5 are dismissed at 1:30 and TKs are dismissed at 1:45. Also, note that we will hold our annual Walk a Thon right after school. All Walk a Thon participants need to be registered to join in the community fun - so make sure to complete the Walk a Thon form and bring a canned food donation to support Call Primrose.
Save the Date - 5th Grade Promotion
Please save the date for our very special McKinley 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony on Friday, June 17 after recess at 10:35 a.m. in the gym. Because we have such a large 5th grade class - we are asking parents to limit their attendees to four per family. Students should dress appropriate for a 5th grade promotion - casual dresses and nice slacks and shirt.
Enjoy the long Memorial Day weekend full of family fun!
