Staff Appreciation Week starts on My 4 and there are 3 things the PTA is working on. But they require your participation! Please share these with your kiddo(s) and I hope you will join in. Entries needed by this Saturday, May 2.
Mission #1: We’re going to make a fun video for the McK staff to thank them for all they do. I am collecting pictures of McKinley students and families to put in this video. It would be great if you could make a sign or a picture and hold it in the photo. It could be an emoji, a hashtag you create, some words, a heart, or something else. Please email photos to: email@example.com.
Mission #2: We’re going to do something extra-special for our FLES/Spanish teachers, Senoras Byrne, Avila, and Malks. APS is making some changes for next school year and it’s possible that elementary schools won’t have FLES anymore. If this happens (we’ll know in May), then we might not have a chance to thank our Spanish teachers for everything they’ve done for us, and to say goodbye to them in person. I would love it if you could write a letter, draw a picture, or make a card for your Spanish teacher. You can make it in English and/or Spanish. Mail these to Mary Kadera at 901 N McKinley Rd, or drop it off in a plastic bin on her front steps that is labelled “FLES.”
Mission #3: We’re creating online “walls” where you can post messages to McKinley staff members. This is using a program called Padlet and you can add your message using the links below. Please feel free to add messages to as many of these “walls” as you like!
