Home of the McKinley Mustangs
Grades 3-4


During the 2014-2015 school year, our McKinley Mustangs had a year packed with lots of learning and many memorable and exciting experiences….none of which would have been possible without the dedicated efforts of the staff and the support of their families.  In September, our former fourth graders entered the halls of the Intermediate School as fifth graders…we will miss you and wish you only the best!  This year’s third graders returned to McKinley in the fall as fourth graders…we are so excited that you are back to share your energy and ideas!  To the students who are new to our building this new school year…"Welcome!"  We look forward to getting to know you as we show you how much fun it is to be a part of our school!  We look forward to another terrific school year! 

 Mrs. Hoffman

  • Families who choose to provide their own transportation are reminded to not enter the front loop to drop off students before 7:52 am (a few busses are scheduled to use that lane prior to 7:52 am).  Parents who choose to walk their children into the building are reminded that they must park their cars in the parking lot.  Do not park cars at any time in the front loop; the front loop is a fire lane.  Students will not be permitted to enter the building prior to 7:52 am.
