5th Annual Move-a-Thon Thank You!

What a great turnout for our 5th annual Move-a-Thon this Sat, Oct 18, at Meridian Park! A HUGE thank you to Kristi BrumbaughElsa Nunes-UenoHappie AriShelley Herzog, and Brent Roberts for putting together another incredibly fun community event. Plus a special thank you to our many volunteer parents who helped out day-of with monitoring activities, setup, cleanup, first aid, check in, and of course the ever-popular Scottie Dog and his handlers!

Thanks also to Zoka Coffee for donating part of their proceeds to McDonald, and to our many other PTA volunteers who were there to collect $, sell Scottie Gear, and more. The biggest thank you to our McDonald families and the many teachers and staff who came out in support of the school and to take part in all the fun! We have an amazing community - Go Scotties!

Stay tuned to find out how much we've raised to support programs and opportunities at McDonald.

When Does My Child Have P.E.?

Our wonderful new P.E. teacher, Ms. Fleck, would like parents and guardians to know that all students have Physical Education in the gym for two 30-minute classes each week (60 minutes total per week).

The weekly schedule is below. This may be useful to parents in helping students to wear athletic shoes/sneakers that are appropriate for running, jumping, kicking balls and changing direction. For rainy days, it's helpful for students to have sneakers in their backpacks for use on P.E. days.

Schedule:
Kindergarten: Mon & Tues                              3rd Grade: Mon & Fri
1st Grade: Wed & Fri                                      4th Grade: Wed & Thurs
2nd Grade (Spanish): Tues & Thurs              5th Grade: Tues & Thurs
2nd Grade (Japanese): Tues & Wed
