McKinney Family Update - November 19, 2023
Dear McKinney Families,
Here is the family update for the week of November 20th.
Pro-D Day November 20th
There is no school for students on November 20th.
Food Bank Donations
As we come together to uplift and support families in our Richmond community, we warmly invite those who are able to contribute non-perishable food items, such as cans, pasta, and toiletries, to our Food Bank Donation Drive. Your generosity will make a significant difference in the lives of those who need it most.
For added convenience, you may also consider making a cash donation through our school's online KEV account. Every contribution, big or small, brings us closer to creating a stronger and more caring community.
We will be collecting donations until December 15th.
School Messenger SMS/Text Messaging – Parent Communication
The Richmond School District is implementing a new communication tool that will enable both the district and your child's school to send you text messages.
This is being implemented to improve the ability to deliver time-sensitive information to you, including emergency notifications. Given the significance of this communication tool, we strongly encourage you to opt-in for this service. You can choose to opt-in by texting 978338 with a Yes.
Please complete this action before November 30, 2023. To opt-in, please send a text message with a Y or YES to 978338 Once you have opted-in, you should receive a confirmation text message from School Messenger. School Messenger is fully compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge, ensuring the safety and confidentiality of your information. Your data will never be shared or sold to any third party.
Thank you for staying connected with us through this new communication tool.
Taking Care of Ourselves, Taking Care of Others (TCO2)
McKinney will be welcoming members of the Children of the Streets Society to speak to our grade 4/5s and our grade 6/7s on Friday, December 1st.
This informative and helpful presentation provides our students with helpful tips and tools for staying safe. For more information, please visit, Children of the Street (https://www.childrenofthestreet.com/workshops/youth-workshops/tco2/).
There is an outline of the grade 4/5 workshop attached to this post. The grade 6/7 workshop is similar but goes into great depth. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Fitt.
The McKinney PAC is excited to bring you a fundraiser with Neufeld Farms!
Stock up on easy meals, meats, pies, cookies and so much more for the upcoming winter season and holidays.
All orders must be placed by November 26th.
Order pick-up is at the McKinney parking lot on Monday, December 4th at 4 pm.
***All orders must be picked up at this time/date as this is frozen food and cannot be stored at the school***
All fundraising profits raised will directly support the PAC's goal of purchasing new playground equipment for the school.
Thank you for being so supportive!
You will find important, upcoming dates on our school calendar:
Have a wonderful week.
