Through our PTA we balance fundraising with community events.  Some of the events are Mckinley community only and some reach out to the wider neighborhood community.  The PTA has a number of committees that work year round to promote community building events.

Check here for our current events.


You, me, we and us is OUR PTA. We are all working hard to help McKinley students get access to wonderful Arts and Science enrichments as well as fantastic supplemental educational opportunities in our Class Size Reduction teacher and Literacy Resource Specialist. Check out this presentation to see how you, me, we and us make it all happen!
