Dear McKinley Families,

FloresFamily_2019Welcome to a new school year at McKinley Elementary! My name is Nancy Flores, and I am honored to serve as the President of McKinley’s Parent Teacher Club (PTC) for the 2019-20 school year.

McKinley’s PTC orchestrates a wide range of activities and services to help supplement the funds our school is allocated by the government, advocate Parent & Teacher issues directly to our school board, and raise school spirit. Funds raised by the PTC are overseen by the McKinley School Foundation, a 503(c)3 nonprofit organization.

The PTC is comprised of parents, guardians, teachers, and community volunteers who raise funds to fill some of the gaps left by inadequate public funding and provide the resources needed for our students to receive the best possible educational experience.

Last year, with the help of McKinley families and community members, we were able to support many programs.  Click here to view a list of programs we were able to support in the 2018-19 school year and goals for 2019-20.

All these are made possible by PTC volunteers—parents, guardians and community members—people just like you who care about a quality education. Please visit our How You Can Help page for information on how to get involved.

We hope you’ll join us by coming to any of our PTC Meetings to share your ideas and talents. In the meantime, you can receive information about upcoming events and activities by subscribing to our blog,

Please contact us anytime with questions or concerns. We look forward to working with you and serving our students this coming year!

Parent Portal

For families that didn’t set up their Parent Portal, please pick up your Parent Portal Access in the Main Office by showing your picture ID. You will receive the confidential access information sheet and instructions on how to create your account. The office will be open starting at 7:30 am.

A PTC volunteer will assist you in finding your child’s class.

Monday Black Top Assembly


Our first Monday Black Top Assembly with Principal Ganderton starts at 8:20 am.  She’s looking forward to seeing all the students ready to learn!

1st Day Jitters?

If you have time after the bell rings swing by the entrance of the school for coffee & donuts to shake off those jitters and meet some fantastic parents. And if you have a little more time, follow us into the Staff Lounge to assemble first day of school packets.

Volunteers make McKinley the best school in North Park and it is going to be a great year!


Nancy Flores
McKinley School Foundation President

P.S. Don’t forget the first day of school is a Minimum Day, dismissal is at 12:15 pm.
