Principal’s Message

Dear McKinley Families,

November is the start of the holiday season, but it also a time many of us reflect on our lives and show gratitude for all we have. The other day when I arrived at work there was a “gratitude tree” placed anonymously on our parent information table. I wanted to share some of what students had written. I am…

…grateful for food and water
…grateful for family
…grateful for a family that cares about me
…grateful for my friends and my family
…grateful for grandma and grandpa because they let me go to their house
…grateful for grandparents visiting me every Christmas.


On behalf of the staff, I would like to wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving and know that we are very grateful for all that you do to contribute to our amazing school community.

TK - Cardboard Challenge

As some of you may have noticed our TK students have been collecting a huge amount of cardboard outside their classrooms. All the TK students will be taking part in the Cardboard Challenge where they will design and craft something from their imagination using the cardboard and recycled items. We will be exhibiting their creations on Tuesday in the long hall outside our TK rooms. Just think we just might have the next great inventor attending TK here! Thank you to their teachers for their guidance and inspiration.

Progress Report Cards – November 25

Just a reminder that your child will be bringing home their Trimester 1 Progress Report. On Tuesday, November 25. Please do not hesitate in contacting your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
