Hi McKinley Families,

Throughout the years, many of you have seen how we’ve been able to enhance McKinley’s programs and add new opportunities and enrichment experiences for our students. This has only been possible because staff & families have come together and pitched in to support the great work done at McKinley every day!

From now and through December 1st, we really need ALL hands on deck for one of our neighborhood’s favorite events: SoNo Fest & Chili Cook-Off. All proceeds from this event support our students! It takes MANY hands to make this possible. We strongly encourage everyone to take a shift. Please sign up today!

LIKE / COMMENT / SHARE! We rely on word of mouth, as there is little marketing budget for this event. We want the most possible $$ to go back to the school, and we need each one of you to help spread the word about the event.
