When most of us grew up, music, art, and field trips were a regular part of our school experience. Not anymore. Did you know the school district provides $0 to provide music programs (other than the Fifth Grade instrumental program), art programs, assemblies, and field trips? The McKinley PTC raises about $50,000 per year to fund weekly music classes, ceramics classes, buses for field trips, and school assemblies.

It costs about $130 per student to provide these great programs. We know that many people are struggling in this economy, so we sponsor a variety of events/drives to reach out to friends, extended families, and neighbors to help raise this money.
