I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for the wonderful support that you show to McGee and its students. Our annual Donuts with Dads before school breakfast was again extremely well attended. This year we had two serving lines and more helpers. As I watched parents and students enter there was not waiting! Profits from the Book Fair go to new library books and books to give away during the year. Your support is amazing and we appreciate it. Our Book Fair was the largest in the area. The Book Fair sold over $10,000 worth of books! Wow!
I hope that you are able to have your child participate in our care packages for soldiers. This will be our sixth year of sending packages overseas to active duty personnel. Each year has been more successful than the last. I think it is important for students to give back to others, so we participate in this program.
On February 11, 2014 the Pasco School District will be running a replacement Maintenance and Operation Levy. The levy currently in effect expires at the end of 2014. The Levy pays for many things in elementary schools including librarians, library clerks, Art, Music and PE teachers. It pays for our Vice Principal, custodians and utilities. This Levy is a slight reduction of $4.51 per $1000. If you have questions regarding the Levy please contact me.
Please enjoy your holiday break! We will see you in 2014 with a big smile and positive attitude for education and learning.
