Forecasting 2019-20

From March 1 – April 5 in Social Studies classes, McKay students will have the opportunity to forecast their class schedule for the 2019-20 school year. They will review their graduation requirements, see their teacher recommendations, select their desired elective courses, and have an individual conversation with a Counselor.

The McKay master schedule for 2019-20, as well as students’ individual schedules, are built based on choices made by students during this forecasting process, so please make informed decisions.

We encourage parents to have conversations with students about their interests, and which classes and programs at McKay would be a good fit for them.

McKay Banking Program Student Shines at Salem Chamber Luncheon

Monday, February 11, 2019 found six McKay students at the Salem Chamber Luncheon Forum. The partnership with McKay and Maps Credit Union was on full display during the luncheon. Jacob Boring, one of the management team in the Advanced Banking Management class, took the stage to share his experience with the program at McKay and then introduced two of the distinguished guest panelists.  The panelists spoke about the importance of Career and Technical Education and the guests included Christy Perry, our Superintendent. Several panelists commented on the skills demonstrated by Jacob as he stood in front of the large crowd of Salem business and community members. Jacob did an amazing job representing McKay High School and the partnership we have with Maps.

McKay Theatre Soars at Regionals

Another Regionals success! This group of first-time competitors battled sickness & nerves, pushed through, supported one another, and learned a ton! Special to the day: senior, LJ Allise, walked (sang?) away with the third highest score (of 130 singers) and qualified to rep McKay at STATE and NATIONALS!!! Go, Scots!
