Preventing the “Summer Slide”

There are many websites available to your child while they are home for summer!  Each student received a blue note with a list of educational websites as well as their passwords.  Find those sites on the NWEA practice page!

Also, the McDonald Elementary media center will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-4p.m. starting June 25th.  Students can come and read or check out books for home.  The computer lab will be open beginning July 7 during the same time frame.

Summer School

Notes for summer school went home with selected students yesterday, June 4th.  Please ask your child if they received an orange note or check their backpack.  Permission slips need to be returned as school as possible so that teachers can plan for summer school.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Planning Ahead!

Another school year is coming to an end!  For your planning purposes, the last day of school for students at McDonald Elementary will be Wednesday, June 10th.  Students will be dismissed at 11:45 a.m.

The staff and administration at McDonald Elementary wish you and your family a happy summer!

St. Jude Trike-a-Thon

Our preschool students and their teachers, Mrs. Roe & Ms. Ibrahim, put together a fun filled day to raise money for St. Jude Hospital.

Students learned about bike safety and then practiced their bicycle skills on the playground.

Thanks to all of the students and parents who donated to such an amazing cause!
