Happy Halloween

Home of the McKinley Mustangs
Grades 3-4



During the 2015-2016 school year, our McKinley Mustangs have 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.  I wish all of our students and their families an enjoyable summer as they relax, visit new places and experience new things. Good luck to our fourth graders as they move on to the Intermediate School and we look forward to greeting our "new" fourth graders as well as our incoming third graders when we return in September!

    Congratulations to two of our faculty members....

We are so fortunate to have Mrs. Stasuk as one of our third grader teachers who challenges her students to become the best they can be while having fun!  Mrs. Sherry Dohn is this year's Educational Services Provider of the Year! We are privileged to have Mrs. Dohn work with our students as an occupational therapist; her skills and knowledge benefit both students and staff!  Their dedication to our students and their families is truly appreciated by all!

  • 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.
