FUNDrive is a fantastic fundraiser McKenny participates in a few times a year. Our first event this year will be on Jan 9th. We will collect gently used items at McKenny from 10-1230 and then with the help of a few volunteers with large vehicles - we will caravan to Lacey Value Village to make our donation. Our school earns more funds for soft goods like clothing. Check out the details here: https://fundrive.savers.com/e/mckennyptofundrive

Start cleaning out your clutter now, but save it for 1/9/21, please!

Save the Date: Tuesday, January 26th at 6:30 pm for a McKenny Talent Show via Zoom. Students, staff, and families may choose to pre-record up to one minute of themselves performing a talent such as singing, martial arts, dancing, a sports-related skill, magic trick, monologue, juggling, poem reading, instrumental performances, etc. or they may send in a picture of a visual arts talent such as drawing, painting, sculpture, jewelry-making, knitting, sewing projects, original LEGO creations, etc. We are so excited to showcase the talents of our amazing students and staff! Families are welcome to join in with their child as well. More information to come, but feel to start planning and creating now! Interested in helping out? Please contact Michael Havens ([email protected]) or Ingrid Aries ([email protected]).
