McKinley Elementary

A Message from Our Principal

Greetings McKinley Eagles Family,

We had a wonderful start for the 2018-2019 school year. Our students spent the first two weeks of the school year building relationships with staff and peers. Also, they were learning about the academic and behavioral expectations at McKinley School to be successful inside and outside of the classroom. At the end of the second week, we celebrated our successful implementation of Champs/PBIS with an ice cream social. Our students also participated in their fall MAP assessment. Our students did a wonderful job, but our goal is to be superb for the winter MAP assessment scheduled for January 2019. Please, stop by McKinley to view our MAP data bulletin board and room. I would love to discuss the results with our McKinley parents.

Thank you to our McKinley grandparents for making our grandparent’s day a tremendous success. Thank you McKinley parents for attending our bring your parent to school day. It is important to be involved in every dynamic of your child’s education. We had over 100 parents in attendance. We have established a PTO for McKinley Elementary, and our next meeting is on Thursday, November 8, 2018, at 6:15 p.m. The McKinley PTO will sponsor a movie night on Friday, November 9, 2018, at 6:00 p.m.

Finally, Erskine Reeves Baber Academy will sponsor a free haircut event on Thursday, November 15, 2018, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. The haircuts will take place in the MCK gymnasium. Our Thanksgiving break is on Wednesday, November 21, 2018, through Friday, November 23, 2018. Our students will return to McKinley Elementary on Monday, November 26, 2018. 

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our students.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide students with equal opportunities for a quality educational experience and to progressively challenge their individual potential so they become successful individuals. We believe that with the right guidance and opportunities, students can succeed and “become what they want to be.”

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum, published by Pearson, meets state standards and encourages mastery in the core subjects of reading, math, and language arts while incorporating science and social studies. To round out our curriculum, students participate in physical education, art, and music weekly. We also make our computer lab and media center available daily to enrich student learning.

Throughout the year, students prepare and present an assembly to showcase what they’ve been learning. Each grade level is responsible for one program. We invite you to join us for these events. Please note the dates on our calendar.
