Welcome to the McKinley CLA High School Principal's Corner
On behalf of the staff at McKinley Middle and High Schools, I am happy to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.
We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she: 1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience 2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers. (Middle school students will have planners and teachers will communicate through the Parent Portal.) 4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life 5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject 6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college
As a school, we will:
1) Provide your child with a rigorous and stimulating curricular experience
2) Support your child through positive behavior interventions
3) Communicate on a regular basis
4) Encourage your child to be a life-long learner and someone who contributes in a positive manner to society
It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year. School handbooks and the SLPS Code of Conduct will be distributed the first week of school. Please review these with your child. The staff will host several Open Houses on the dates listed in the table to help you and your family get to know McKinley.
We look forward to seeing you there. Welcome (or welcome back) to the McKinley Goldbug Family. We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you this fall.
