Believe and Succeed!
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!
As a reminder, students who qualify for free or reduced lunch are also eligible to receive free or reduced breakfast, which is available at all Stafford Schools. Please see the Stafford School’s web page to find the breakfast menus in the Food Service link. The price of a reduced breakfast is $0.30. Please remember that you can prepay for meals using www.payforit.net .
Also, if your family’s financial circumstances have changed since the start of the school year, you may now qualify for the free and reduced program. If that is the case, see our web site for how to submit an application.
Congratulations to Mrs. Hope Scherlin... this year’s McKinley Avenue School’s Teacher of the Year! Previously, Mrs. Scherlin was a basic skills teacher who made it her personal mission to help her students become the best readers and writers they could be. She is currently the Home/School Liaison for both the McKinley and Intermediate Schools. Her dedication to our school is truly appreciated by all!
