No School This Week - Happy Thanksgiving!

Don't forget school is closed this entire week, Monday through Friday, Nov 23-27, for Parent-Teacher Conferences and the Thanksgiving holiday.

If you haven't already signed up for a parent-teacher conference, contact your child's teacher right away (click on the teacher's profile to get their email address).

We're thankful for our wonderful McDonald Int'l teachers and staff, our amazing students, and our incredible community - have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

McDonald Int'l Community Book Club

Read More

Any adult in the McDonald Int'l community can join for a casual yet lively book discussion on the first Tues or Thurs of each month during the school year. Read a great novel and get together to eat, drink and discuss—what's not to like? Didn't get to finish the book? No worries, come anyway!

Visit the Upcoming Events page for the date and details of the next monthly gathering. New folks are always welcome!

Check the book out from the Seattle Public Library—or buy it on Amazon via the blue McDonald Amazon link (at left) and up to 4-9% of your purchase goes to the IS Fund.

Questions? Email Tarah Helliwell.
