PTA Accomplishments for the 2021-2022 School Year
We had a very busy year as a PTA this school year with our return to campus full-time. Our successful fundraising efforts allowed us to support of our school community in very meaningful ways. Below are a few highlights:
- Provided funding for a Bilingual Instructional Assistant and a Physical Education Teacher for the lower grades

- Funded signage to help direct traffic in front of the school at pick up and drop off
- Provided Teacher Supply Funds for all McKinley/PACS teachers
- Coordinated several Staff Appreciation events throughout the school year
- Purchased site license of Reflex Math app
- Provided funding for our Performing Arts program’s performance of the Lion King
- Funded visits to our campus from the Bay Area Discovery Museum Try-It Truck and Classroom Safari
- Hosted community engagement events like the Winter Festival, Ancestor’s Table and the Parent Education Night Block Party
- Provided funding for a new playground to be installed on campus this summer!
- And much more! Read a full list of our accomplishments here.
We would like to thank all our McKinley/PACS families for their support through donations and volunteer hours throughout the school year. The work that the McKinley PTA does affects every student, and we cannot do this work without your help.
We hope you join the PTA next year and volunteer on one of our committees so you can help guide our spending priorities.
