Hello McKinley Families,
We just wrapped up our first week on the fourth quarter and it was another great on! 3rd quarter report cards will be coming home next Tuesday, April 16th and there is no school next Friday, April 19th (Teacher In-Service).
Our state testing for grades 3rd-5th will be held the week of May 6th-10th. We are moving from Iowa Assessments to what is now called Iowa State-wide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP). These tests will all be completed using the student chromebooks and I will be sending out additional information in the next couple of weeks.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
3rd-5th Walk to Sudlow
Thursday, April 18th from 8-11am, our 3rd-5th grade students will be walking to Sudlow Intermediate School for a band and orchestra concert. A permission slip was sent home this week and needs to be returned. If weather is poor, we have buses scheduled to pick us up.
PTA Meeting (May 9th)
At the May 9th PTA meeting Board Elections will be held. If you are interested in learning more or would like to become involved in the McKinley PTA Board, please make sure to be at the meeting which will start at 6pm in the library.
McKinley Elementary school just finished off its annual variety show! It was a little smaller than usual, but just as amazing. Everyone worked so hard to make it the best it could be. This years theme was Reach for the Stars and it was so beautifully decorated by Mrs.Greenwood. This year there were quite a few piano pieces, along with song and dance, and skits performed. A special thank you to Mrs.Berthel, Mrs.Finkeldei and Mrs.Greenwood for making all of this possible.
