Dear McKinley Families,
“Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.” Frank Clark
This past week I have been amazed at the outpouring of food collected for Call Primrose, and the many contributions given to our Helping Hands Project. It is so gratifying to know that many of our families will have holidays that are a bit brighter because of your generosity.
Tuesday’s morning assembly was full of holiday cheer! It was Jammies and Hot Chocolate Day – our staff’s favorite day of the year! A big thank you to PTA volunteers and Sara Scott for serving up the delicious Leche con Chocolate.
As we leave for Winter Break, I would like to thank the McKinley Community for all that you do for our school and District. Have a wonderful break filled with memorable moments with family and friends. We will see you back at school on January 5, 2015.
Lost & Found- going, going, gone-Friday!
Our Lost & Found bin is overflowing with student belongings. Please come by the bin (located in the breezeway between the north and south playgrounds) and claim your child’s items. Any unclaimed items will be donated to charity on the last day of school before Winter Break, December 19th.
Hot Lunch Volunteers Needed
If you are interested in helping during lunch time from 12:00 to 12:40 to assist with serving lunch, we could use your extra pair of hands. Please contact Nhieu Warner at (650) 215-8655 or Miss Valerio.
Spelling Bee Coming Soon – 1/16/15!
Please join us for our annual Grade 3-5 Spelling Bee on Friday, January 16, 2015. If your child expressed an interest in participating in the Spelling Bee, their teachers have given them the Spelling Bee word list to bring home so they could begin studying over winter break.

The McKinley Science Fair has been moved to Wednesday January 21st, 2015 from 6 – 7 pm in the Auditorium. Participating students should attend two remaining mentor meetings with Maestra Jaramillo and Mr. Brockbank on January 7th and January 20th in the Library.

Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!
Felices Fiestas y un Feliz Año Nuevo!
