  • McKinley Community Site

    Please welcome our sister site at McKinleyMountainLions.com. This space is intended to focus on connecting the McKinley community through activities, events, social space and more! This week we kicked things off by launching a stay-at-home scavenger hunt. Head on over and send us pictures of what you find! New items will be posted every week.

    The community site is a work in progress, and it will be whatever we make it — so if you have some ideas of ways we can connect the community, or you want to start or lead an activity, please let us know. You can email us at the PTC: ptcmckinley@gmail.com, or send us your email to join us in our Slack workspace to have a more detailed conversation.

    Big thanks to Kevin Smith for doing the heavy lifting on this project. It’s a lot of work though, so if you or someone you know in our community has some time and a little web building experience, we’d love to share the load!

  • 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!
