Thank you for a fantastic Jog-a-thon!


We hit our $60,00 goal!

Thank you so much for a very successful Jog-a-thon. We hit our $60,000 goal with your support. Stay tuned for updates about all the incentives your students earned once the numbers are finalized!

The funds we raised will go a long way to support every child and classroom at McKinley school and PACS.

If you haven’t dropped off your cash and check donations yet, please do so on Monday morning.

We would also like to thank Clover Sonoma for providing delicious smoothies for the kids after their runs, our Jog-a-thon chairs, Renee McArdle and Nina Jarum Walters for organizing this event, and all the teachers and volunteers who helped us get the word out about the fundraiser in the last few weeks.


Did you know that the McKinley PTA provides funds for programs and initiatives that support every student and classroom at McKinley/PACS?

We are so proud to have been able to support McKinley / PACS by providing funds for a bilingual instructional assistant for the lower grades, funding classroom supply stipends for every teacher, purchasing water filling and hand washing stations for the school campus, hosting events throughout the year for all our families, and much more! See our full list of accomplishments.

You can help us on our mission!

Joining the PTA is a great way for you to provide input about our initiatives and funding priorities. The McKinley PTA welcomes members from all our school families, including those who cannot afford the cost of membership. Membership for the school year is $10 and we offer sponsored memberships.
