Believe and Succeed!
It is hard to believe that another school year is over! 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. In September, our former fourth graders will be entering the halls of the Intermediate School as fifth graders…we will miss you and wish you only the best! This year’s third graders will be returning to McKinley in the fall as fourth graders…we are so excited that you will be back to share your energy and ideas! To the students who will be new to our building next 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! Have a safe and enjoyable summer and thank you for another terrific school year!
Tips for Success
Why is Parental Involvement Important?
In study after study, researchers discover how important it is for parents to be actively involved in their child’s education.
How Can Parents Get Involved?
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.
