Principal's Message

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.


Important News on Grandfathered Dual Immersion Kindergartners

We are trying to determine how many spots we have left for our next year's Immersion Kindergarten classes, so if you have a "grandfathered" sibling - please register by Friday, February 12, so we can look at the number of spots available for our lottery.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Del Pape.


Calling All Performers

The students of McKinley will be presenting their Variety Show on Friday, April 22 in the McKinley Auditorium. The theme this year is "That's Entertainment;" students can pick up green "Variety Show" Permission Slips from their teachers or on the parent information table outside the office. All forms need to be turned into the office by Thursday, February 11. Please review the important information on the Variety Show guidelines and the commitment to their performance.


Busy Week Ahead

Next week is a very exciting week filled with incredible learning from a S.E.M. day on Monday celebrating Chinese New Year throughout our grade levels with cultural activities. On Wednesday, February 10th, we mark the 100th day of school and we hold our school's Spanish Spelling Bee at 12:50 in our gym.


Enjoy the beautiful weekend ahead and the Super Bowl!
