The Annual PTA Staff Appreciation Cookie Carry is Friday, Dec. 13th. This is a perfect way to volunteer without a huge time commitment and to show our staff how much we appreciate them! Just bake a few batches of your favorite cookies and deliver them to the staff lounge; families may drop off cookies in the staff lounge from 3:45-6pm on Thursday, December 12th or from 7-11am on Friday, December 13th.
Please package cookies in non-breakable, airtight containers and attach a copy of the recipe. If you need your containers returned, please label both top and bottom with your student’s full name, grade and homeroom teacher.
Light Up the Holidays is back! Through December 13, select a gift tag from the bulletin board in the front lobby. Each tag contains an item requested by a family or child in our area. Please take a tag, purchase the gift, ATTACH THE TAG SECURELY TO THE GIFT, and drop it back off UNWRAPPED in the box below the bulletin board. Easy-peasy!
Please remind children that they should not take a tag without permission from a parent/guardian. We’re accountable for purchasing these items and need all tags to come back attached to a gift.

Updated 11/12/19: We have a few vacancies in the Room Parent roster and are looking for interested candidates. (Note that we usually assign two people to each classroom, so you would not be taking this on by yourself!) If you’re interested or if you have questions, please contact Janine Spiro at email@example.com.
This summer I received a question from a parent who remembers that in years past (before the McK building renovation), a group of family volunteers met periodically on weekends to clean up and beautify the school grounds. If there’s interest in reviving this initiative, we’ll need one or two parents willing to spearhead the effort.
Contact Mary (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested.
We’re on the hunt for someone to co-chair After-School Enrichment this school year. If you’d like to help arrange this array of amazing after-school experiences for McK students, we could use your help!
It involves promoting the registrations window for each of the three sessions; picking the enrichment classes that will be offered each session; and serving as a point person for Baroody, the company that manages most of the enrichment logistics.
Please contact Mary (email@example.com) if you’re interested.
