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.
