Principal’s Message

 

Dear McKinley Families,

In February, eleven 4th and 5th Grade McKinley students participated in the Burlingame School District STEM Fair.  Four of our 5th graders earned a 1st or 2nd place in the BSD STEM Fair and thus participated in the San Mateo County STEM Fair, held at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos.  Scientists and engineers interviewed Ella Giere, Natasha Marangu, Rachel Burdick, and Bilel Harrat about their research.   This is the first time McKinley students have participated in the San Mateo County STEM Fair!  Thank you to BSD Science Coach – Brennan Brockbank for his energy and developing our students’ scientific curiosity.

Way to go Bulldog Scientists!

Lions Club Citywide Spelling Bee

Congratulations to this year’s Top Spellers who did an awesome job representing McKinley yesterday at the 7th Annual Citywide Lions Club Spelling Bee.

Team captain, Eddie Gill, Kayla Joachin and Mateen Akhavein persevered through some very challenging words, but unfortunately the overall Lions Bee Trophy remains at St. Catherine’s for another year.

    

LCAP Town Hall Meeting – April 9 at 7:00

Lunch Recess News

As I announced at the Tuesday Assembly, we will be changing our lunchtime to 50 minutes from 12:00 to 12:50 starting Monday, April 6, when we return from Spring Break. Therefore, this change will eliminate the “wiggle break” midafternoon. Our staff is helping by providing guidance and training to our students on game play, lunch line/eating area routines, and how to be safe and inclusive on our yards. We are also going to be moving our Grade 2 students over to the larger North Yard for lunch only and split the lunch eating/play time accordingly.

Primary Yard:

12:00-12:25  Lunch A: Kinder / Play-Grade 1

12:25-12:47  Lunch B: Grade 1/ Play-Kinder

North Yard:

12:00-12:25  Lunch A: Grades 4-5 /Play-Grades 2-3

12:25-12:47  Lunch B: Grades 2-3 /Play-Grades 4-5

We are excited for the opportunity to engage our students in this new lunchtime process, and to get ready for all the wonderful yard improvements that will happen over the summer.

¡Les deseo unas maravillosas vacaciones de primavera! Wishing you a Hippity, Hoppity, Wonderful Spring Break!
