Attention TK-2nd Grade Families
The Staff Appreciation Committee is collecting monetary donations from the TK through 2nd grade families who are able to do so. The suggested donation is $10, but any amount is appreciated. They will be providing food and drinks in the staff room for teachers on Monday, October 25th.
Our goal is to collect the donations by this Friday October 22nd.
For the monetary donations, we accept cash and checks made out to McKinley PTA or you can click on this link and select Staff Appreciation Fund
You may also drop off your donations to the office in an envelope labeled ‘Staff Appreciation”.
If you are unable to donate at this time, there are other ways you can help out. If you are able to provide some bounty from your gardens, that would also be much appreciated. Or if you feel inspired to create some beautiful pictures/posters to help beautify the staff room, that would be fantastic.
Please feel free to reach out to either one of us if you have any questions or ideas on how you would like to help out.
