New Family Information

 

Kindergarten Night: Kindergarten Night is held every school year in May. It is a general information night about the McKinley Kindergarten program. This evening gives incoming kindergarten families an idea of what you can expect during the Kindergarten year.

 

Back to School Night: Back to School Night is held each year during the second week of school. On this night, parents meet with their child's teacher and find out what they can expect for the school year.

 

Kindergarten Intake Assessments: Kindergarten Intake Assessments are conducted in August. The interviews allow the teachers to asses the student's skills and helps in assigning students into early and late birds.
