We are excited to announce that we will be hosting the 61st Annual McKinley Variety Show!


Have something original in mind? Are you thinking of performing with your friends or are you going for a solo? Maybe you are planning to do a skit? Or perhaps you want to show off your juggling or comedy skills? This is your opportunity to show us your talents!

All McKinley students in grades K-5 are invited to perform, and all McKinley students, staff and parents are invited to attend the show.  5th grade students are also invited to audition for four emcee roles as well as stage crew.

Our theme for this year’s Variety Show is “McKinley’s Got Talent” thanks to Zoey Pavon in Mr. Ghahary’s class!
