    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!
