   Our Mission:

McKinley Elementary School is dedicated to academic, social, and personal growth by empowering self-motivated, kind, respectful, and confident students in a safe environment rich in family traditions.  

Thank You!

A huge thank you goes out to Jake Mouriquand, Cloyce Mann, and Jeff Biemiller. They built us a gorgeous cart on wheels to house our new Dell Inspiron netbooks. Thank you PTO for purchasing these awesome netbooks.  Also, thank you to Roger Tuttle in IT who got them up and running. We now are blessed to have 55 netbooks that are in constant use around the school. Our students are loving them!

Delayed Start Wednesdays:

McKinley Elementary School is participating with the Task Force Wednesdays.  See attached document for these planned delayed start Wednesdays. This time will allow staff to receive direct professional development throughout the year to ensure that your child is receiving the best instruction every day.  Breakfast will be served on these dates.  Transportation will pick students up two hours later than normal transportation days and supervision will begin at school at 10:00 a.m.  Kidz Klub will also be available for supervision at their cost.  Please contact CC Parks and Rec for more information.

McKinley Teacher Envoy Flight

Mrs. Kelly, one of our kindergarten teachers, writes, "I flew in a 1940's Stearman Biplane from the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Denver. As a Teacher Envoy I get access to curriculum, speakers, discounted field trips and a ticket for each McKinley student to get in to the museum with their family. I also get a lifetime membership for my family to the museum!! I had an amazing experience and would recommend it to other teachers. The goal of the Museum is to have one teacher from each of more than 1600 schools along the Front Range!!"
Way to go Mrs. Kelly!  

Wildcat Grill

McKinley Elementary had their first Wildcat Grill last October and it was a huge success. The Wildcat Grill will be open one time a month for parents and students. 5th grade students help during the lunch to check on their visitors and help serve.  Our 5th graders are pictured here serving for the Febuary Wildcat Grill.

 Student Safety!

A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the classroom response to an incident at school. Weather events, fire, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by students, teachers, staff and administration.  Standard Response Protocol (SRP) is based on these four actions: Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate and Shelter.

Parents, please read this SRP flyer to learn more. You can also get involved.  Check out
