Principal Update January 2018 English/Spanish

01.11.2018

Hello McKay Community,

It was nice welcoming our community back from the long winter break last week. We have successfully transitioned back into learning here at McKay High School. As I have visited classrooms and have conferenced with both students and staff, our community is working hard to prepare for semester one finals here at the end of the month. We ask that you continue to conference with your student regarding assignments and activities. Likewise, please remember that if students need additional support, we provide after-school tutoring in our library every day until 5:00 pm. Teachers are also available to meet directly with both students and families.

Before the winter break, we hosted a McKay-area community meeting to review facility needs as well as projected enrollment numbers. We also reviewed the initial conceptual design for McKay High School, which will address these needs. I appreciated all the McKay community who came to our meeting to hear about this and to provide input into the process. For those of you who could not make it, I am attaching this information to review. Please know that I am happy to discuss this information with you at any time. Please call the office directly at 503.399.3080.

We appreciate the partnership and support here at McKay High School as we continue to move our school closer to our vision of ‘Every student graduates college and career ready.’

Rob Schoepper

Principal, McKay High School

Estimada comunidad de McKay:
Nos dio mucho placer darle la bienvenida a nuestra comunidad luego de las largas vacaciones invernales. La transición a las clases diarias ha sido exitosa en la Escuela Preparatoria McKay. En mis visitas a las aulas y en las conversaciones con el personal y con los alumnos, me he dado cuenta de que la comunidad se esfuerza al máximo por prepararse para los exámenes finales del semestre, los cuales se harán a fines del presente mes. Les pedimos que sigan al tanto de las tareas de clase y de las actividades estudiantiles. Asimismo, por favor, recuerden que, si el alumno necesita apoyo complementario, en la escuela damos tutoría diaria en la biblioteca después de clase hasta las 5 de la tarde. Los maestros también están en la mejor disposición de reunirse con los alumnos y las familias cuando sea necesario.

Antes de las vacaciones invernales, celebramos una reunión con la comunidad que vive en la zona de asistencia de McKay para conversar sobre las necesidades de la escuela, la proyección de la matrícula y el diseño conceptual de la Escuela Preparatoria McKay. Les damos las gracias a los miembros de la comunidad que acudieron a la reunión para expresar sus opiniones sobre estos asuntos. En beneficio de los que no asistieron a la reunión, adjunto dicha información a la presente carta. Por favor, tengan la certeza de que estoy a la disposición de ustedes para conversar en cualquier momento sobre los temas que tratamos en la reunión. Por favor, llamen a la oficina al teléfono 503.399.3080.

Agradecemos la colaboración y el apoyo de todos en la Preparatoria McKay mientras continuamos trabajando a fin de hacer realidad nuestra divisa: “Todos los alumnos se graduarán listos para la Universidad y para la vida profesional”.

Rob Schoepper

Director de la Escuela Preparatoria McKay

McKay Honors Students for Good Attendance

On Friday, December 15th, McKay High School honored approximately 400 students for having 98% attendance or above throughout the first 55 days of school.  Through a tremendous, coordinated effort between our CCR teachers, PBIS team, school staff, and administrators, we were able to recognize our Royal Scots who’ve demonstrated an excellent commitment to their education.

Our celebration included snacks donated by our local Roth’s Fresh Market, a heart warming, holiday performance by our choir students, as well as a motivation address by Mr. Patrick Schrader.  We would like to thank everyone who had a hand in making this celebration a success for our community.
