Current Events December 12 and beyond

Here’s what is coming up in December.

Starting December 5th-14th:
Holiday Giving Program

Every year, our community at McKinley comes together to lend a helping hand to our families that could use some extra help or support during the holiday season.

All McKinley/PACS families are invited to stop by the Holiday Giving Board and pick a tag for an item that one of our sponsored families wishes to receive during the holidays. The holiday board will be out starting Monday, December 5th through Wednesday December 14th; before and after school. There will be many tags available, and all gifts are due back by Friday, December 16th at the office. All gifts must be wrapped and the original tag must be attached.

Please sign up to help supervise the board here.

Questions? Contact the coordinators.

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.
