Become a part of a creative problem-solving community
Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and world level.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 (email@example.com) 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested.
