Dear Mustang Families and Students,
As the proud principal of McKay Creek Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year. McKay is Mustang Mighty and boasts a reputation of rigor, engagement and kindness. It is nestled near McKay Creek and stables approximately 250 Mustangs grades first–fifth. McKay has phenomenal teachers who practice instructional excellence, respond to the needs of all students, and who are innovative. They promote high expectations for active learning while increasing emotional awareness, self-management, and leadership skills in all of our students. The staff is dedicated to meeting students where they are and identifying and addressing the learning needs of all students through enrichment and student-specific interventions in reading, writing and math.
The staff and I are excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your child and provide a safe space where all students belong, succeed, learn and grow. The Pendleton School District will occasionally send messages to families using School Messenger or Remind and the webpage and Facebook pages are also great resources for updates.
McKay and community are dedicated to establishing a safe, nurturing environment in which each student experiences success in learning and positive self-esteem. We hold the interest of children at the heart of all decision making. We nurture, instruct, and encourage our students to become lifelong learners capable of maximizing their potential as responsible, productive citizens. In addition, we value the culture and experiences of every family and welcome you to be part of our school family.
It is a pleasure and honor to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to every student and family as the school year begins. If you have questions, concerns, or ideas, my door is open, and I am here to listen. As a staff, we look forward to joining you in this exciting partnership.
