Hello McKinley Families,
It was a great first week back from Thanksgiving break that was shortened by a day due to the winter weather. We look to get back into a regular routine over the next couple of weeks before heading into winter break. There are lots of events in the month of December, so please be sure to check the upcoming dates at the bottom of the eblast.
McKinley Dance Marathon – Fundraiser for University of Iowa Steadfast Children’s Hospital. Friday, December 7th 5-7pm. Admission is $5 and includes: Dancing, Face Painting, Card Making Station, Games, Bake Sale and Silent Auction and Water. Dance Marathon Bracelets will go on sale for $2 starting the week of November 26th during lunch until gone.
McKinley School Spirit Wear
The PTA is selling school spirit wear. Attached to the eblast is a list of available items for purchase. In addition, this order form went home last week in the Tuesday folders. All orders are due by December 4th. Purchased items will be available for pickup before winter break.
Music Recorders Available for Purchase
3rd, 4th, and 5th graders need to bring their recorders to school. Recorders are available to purchase in the office for $5.50. There will be a handful of recorders that are available for students to borrow instead of purchase. There will be assignments in the recorder packets for students to practice at home.
