At McKinley we strive to be a community, a family, a union that together help each other, our extended families and our community. School spirit events are a way to show our unity. Studies have shown that students with “school spirit” perform better academically, are more engaged in social and civic matters, and are happier in general than their less-spirited peers. Listed below are “School Spirit Events” we will hold throughout the school year. Please help us in our goal of unity and spirit by encouraging your child to participate in the events.
