• PTC Meeting Tuesday, May 12th!

    As with all things these days, the future is uncertain. With that in mind, I will continue to post according to plan, until we know the events are cancelled. Take care of yourselves until we see you again.

    All parents, teachers, and staff are invited and encouraged to attend all PTC meetings. Monthly meetings are from 6:30 to 7:30 and childcare is provided.

  • Usborne Book Fair

    March 9-13

    Sadly, the book fair had to close early, but hopefully you were lucky enough to get a peek before it went away! Enough of you bought books that we were able to earn a few for the library. If you got a chance to stop in, let us know what you thought at PTCMcKinley@gmail.com.

  • Five Guys Fundraiser

    Thanks to everyone who participated in the Five Guys Fundraiser. Together we earned $372.90 for McKinley Elementary.

    We are grateful to have local merchants who support us in this way. As you can imagine, the current ban on seated dining is a hard reality for these restaurants.

    If you would like to support Five Guys, you can still access take out and delivery by ordering through their website: https://order.fiveguys.com/menu/commercial/

  • Oregon Battle of the Books

    Team McKinley did an amazing job at this year’s regional competition, making it into the top 8!

    Congratulations to all teams on a great year and an excellent tournament. This year’s teams were the best yet! Most of next year’s titles are already posted (the final title will be decided at the state competition). Check them out on the OBOB website: https://www.oregonbattleofthebooks.org/2020-2021-obob-book-titles/

    Thank you to all who volunteered, this activity can’t happen without you. Stay tuned, we’ll start work on next year’s OBOB sooner than you think!

  • Photos!

    McKinley wants your event photos! If you have taken photos you would like to share, you can now email them to McKinleyPix@gmail.com. Once they are approved by McKinley staff, you may see your photo here or on the McKinley Facebook page.

    When sending us your photos, it is helpful if you include the event and the date when they were taken. If you know the names of the kids in the photos, or if they are your own children, that is helpful for us, too. We will not use the names of students when we post the photos.

  • McKinley Fun Run

    The “Color Run” Fun Run was a big success!

    McKinley students and parents went the extra mile this year, raising nearly $14,000! As the biggest fund raiser of the year, the Fun Run is vital in allowing us to support our elementary school in its educational and enrichment activities.

    McKinley PTC would like to thank Lyndsie Taylor and all of the volunteers who helped with the Fun Run and supervised the giant inflatable obstacle course that the students earned through their efforts.

    Thanks also to those who sent in these great photos. If you have photos you would like to share, please send them to McKinleypix@gmail.com!
