Dear McKinley Families,
Congratulations to all the McKinley Poets that submitted an "original" poem to the "Poems are Cool" Poetry Contest at the Burlingame Public Library during the month of January. We are pleased to announce that McKinley won 1st place in the contest. We now are the proud recipients of a King Penguin that we will proudly place in our Library. Next week students will be able to submit their recommendation of names for our King Penguin - there will be a box in the office to turn in the names by the end of next week. Student Leadership will review and select the penguin's name and announce it at a Tuesday assembly.
BCE Read-a-Thon was an incredible success! McKinley Bulldogs read over 131,237 minutes! We would like to thank all of you that contributed to the Read-a-Thon and especially to our event chairs, Karen Senffner and Hildur Carlen, who did an incredible job coordinating this year's successful Read-a-Thon.

Busy Week Ahead
