For Green Ribbon Week, there is a coloring contest.  Your student will be receiving the coloring page from his/her teacher on Tuesday but if it gets lost in the process, please click HERE to open and print the coloring page.  Have your student color it and return by Friday, October 9th.  Thank you!

McKinley Reading for Education School Fundraiser

We are doing the Reading for Education fundraiser again this year.  An envelope will be coming home with your student.  Please read the instructions and help your student fill in addresses of family and friends on the papers in the booklet.  We receive money for every paper filled out and there is no obligation to buy anything for you or anyone that receives the postcard.  They can buy something if they want but they DO NOT have to buy anything for us to get money.  We receive money for every address filled out.  Do not rip the papers out of the booklet.  Once you have filled in the postcard pages with addresses, send the booklet back with your student to give to his/her teacher.  If the student returns the booklet completely filled out they will receive a glow time watch or if only part of the booklet is filled out with addresses, they will receive a Spongebob slap bracelet for returning it.  If they return the booklet completely filled out they will also have their name entered into a drawing for a grand prize.


Please watch this little video that gives more detailed information regarding this fundraiser.


Let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you for your support.

Safety Tips:

-Look both ways before crossing a street. (Left-Right-Left)
-Walk not run across the street. Look for cars while crossing.
-Use crosswalks
-Never play on the street
-Wear reflective clothing at night
