Dear McKinley Families,
With the Thanksgiving holiday next week, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your commitment to our school and to our Bulldogs. We are so fortunate to have such a caring community. Our Thanksgiving break starts next Wednesday, November 25 and goes through Friday, November 27.
PTA Reflections Art Contest
Thank you so much to Karen Senffner who coordinated this year's initial PTA Reflection's Contest here at McKinley. We are so pleased with all the incredible artistic submissions from our students. Once again, thank you to all those that participated and congratulations to those Bulldogs that are moving on to the District wide PTA Reflections contest.

Safe Routes to School Parent Survey
The Burlingame School District receives funding for its Safe Routes to School Program to help create safer walking and biking to school opportunities. In order for us to shape our program around our school community's needs we need your input on how your child gets to/from school and what barriers or concerns you have. Please take just a few moments to complete this very short anonymous parent transportation survey for each child enrolled in the Burlingame School District. (This survey link is specific to McKinley, so if you have children in other BSD schools please look for that school's specific link in a separate e-mail from that school.) Thank you for your participation in helping us improve our Safe Routes to School program.
