Principal Message


Hi everyone, I'm the new McKinley Elementary principal, my name is Corynn Arehart. 


I'm so excited to be on this epic journey with you this year!! Mr. Chournos and I have worked many, many hours this Spring and Summer to help us have a smooth transition and to make sure I have the information I'll need to support all of you! To let you know a little bit about me, I have shared a quick video, as well as a little write up. 

video coming soon.....

I hope to share McKinley Elementary's story this year through Facebook and Twitter. Please follow us on Facebook @ McKinley Elementary and on Twitter @ corynn_arehart and #unitedweleadmckinley20182019

Who is Corynn; I'm a military wife, I have been married for 24 years, and my husband is currently serving active duty in the Air force. He has been serving for 25 years now, we might be nearing retirement this year.... I was born and raised in Wisconsin, and then moved around between Chicago, Wisconsin, Maryland, and Georgia. We lived in Italy for 3 years and then transferred to Utah. I have lived in Utah with our children since October 2000. We have planted seeds and let the roots grow for our kids while my husband has toured all over the US and overseas. It was important for us to have our children have a place to call home. I currently live in Lewiston UT on a little hobby farm, we have dogs, chickens, goats, ducks, horses, cats, and lots of fun!! I have 3 children, 2 son-in-laws, and 1 grandchild, she just joined us 4 months ago, and we love her to pieces! My baby just turned 16 and is getting his license later this month. YIKES!! We are a rodeo, 4H, horse loving family, and when it's just to hot to ride horses, we play on our family boat. In the winter I love to snowmobile, snowshoe, and play outside. I'm trying to learn to quilt and sew, along with embroidery. 

I have taught at BEHS for 9 years in Special Education, I taught math, team taught Elem. Algebra 1, language Arts, Study Skills, Social skills through Adaptive P.E., and World Civ. I then obtained my 1st maters degree in Curriculum and Instruction and then obtained my 2nd masters degree in Administration School Leadership. I have been a principal in BESD for 4 years. 

I love working with students, parents, teachers, staff member and the community and can't wait to begin building new relationships with our Tremonton families!! I'm passionate about the Leader In Me and believe in the positive outcomes it creates for students to become their own leaders!! Every child deserves to learn the tools to help them in school, society and for life!! 

Our vision this year at McKinley is to teach and show students how to use the 7 habits, how they are all leaders, and to do it in a collaborative process through unity. 

Our theme this year is UNITED WE LEAD!!

I have an open door policy- please contact me anytime via email corynn.arehart@besd.net, my phone or texting 435-740-1315, or by calling the school directly. 

 I'd love to hear from you, please send me a shout out. As families how have you sharpened your saw and built family relationships this summer? 

Please watch for more letters and updates as I believe in being transparent, having high communication with our families and community, and sharing our story! :) 

Thank you everyone, 
Corynn Arehart

McKinley School Fundraiser

McKinley School 2017-18 Fundraiser

The McKinley Elementary fundraiser kicked off today, Friday, April 6th and will end Friday, April 20th.  Instead of sending our students out selling various items, we’re asking for direct donations to the school. We are doing a Party Plus Fundraiser meaning that the whole school will be having a Read-a-thon Party on Wednesday, May 2nd to celebrate the money we will earn through the fundraiser but each class can earn added bonuses to their party depending on the average dollar amount per student brought in for each class.  The students know what the bonus items are for each level earned.  The money earned through this fundraiser goes directly to our school and will be used for supplies, chrome books, fieldtrips and items for the Leader in Me program at McKinley & staff support.  We really appreciate your support in helping raise funds for our school.

Please only ask for donations from people you know.  Don’t go door to door asking for donations to houses you don’t know who lives there.  Students must turn in this donation sheet with the donation envelope.  The student’s name should be clearly written on both the donation envelope and collection sheet.  Don’t limit yourself to one donation sheet, once this sheet is filled out, turn it in and take another one.  Our goal is to average $15 per student.  Make checks payable to McKinley School.

People can donate online as well.  Please click on the link below to take you to the donation page.  People can donate to more than one student in one transaction.  It has a place to put in the donation amount and when you push enter, it pops up a field where you can put the students name for that amount and then you would do the same in the next line if you are donating to another student.  Make sure to put the student’s name in so we can credit that student for the donation to help with their class bonuses for the party.

Please call the school with any questions!  THANK YOU!

Click HERE to donate online.
