Sharing Your Info With the PTA

By now you have received an email from APS to verify your family’s information in ParentVUE. When you go through the verification process, PLEASE opt-in to share your information with the PTA. Without this, it’s very difficult for us to get class lists to share with Room Parents, etc..

Also, once school starts, be sure to look in the PTA Welcome Packet or in Cardinal Notes for further instructions about how to join the PTA, participate in the online school directory, and support the PTA’s fall check-writing campaign (one of our two major fundraisers).

Want to Help Preserve McKinley’s Grounds?

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 ( if you’re interested.

Enrichment Co-Chair Needed

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 ( if you’re interested.
