Parent's Club

The New Playground

The Parent's Club meets every month at 7:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria, usually on the 1st Tuesday.  Please join us.  It is our goal to welcome all McKay families and increase the involvement of our parents.  We need you and your ideas so that we may continue to help in "Making the best better."

The annual Pie Social in March was also a wonderful family event for the McKay community and it raised over $3000.00 to support school projects and activities.  We appreciate all the area businesses and individuals who generously contributed and the parents who gave their time to make this event a success.


The Parents' Club and school staff joined together, along with support from various organizations and fund raisers to support various school improvement projects, including:

  • Primary playground
  • Intermediate Playground
  • Reader Board
  • Primary Swings
  • Benches, Planters, and Game Table on Intermediate Playground 

By working together, we can accomplish so much!

Unity Poem

I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child?s mind
And they fashioned it with care.

One was a teacher;
The tools he used were books and music and art;
One was a parent with a guiding hand and a gentle loving heart.

And when at last their work was done
They were proud of what they had wrought
For the things they had worked into the child
Could never be sold or bought.

And each agreed they would have failed
If they had worked alone
For behind the parent stood the school,
And behind the teacher stood the home.
