Project Grad Meeting Wednesday November 28

Attention parents of Seniors, tomorrow night Wednesday November 28, Project Grad will be meeting in the McKay Library.  We will be talking about the upcoming Senior All Night Party.  There is 190 days left until graduation, and project grad still needs help fundraising in order to make this years party successful.  Please come with your ideas, and with your schedule, so we can get some parents signed up to help with our fundraising efforts.  We currently are collecting cans and bottles in order to take advantage of a match program at BottleDrop, now until December 9th.  During this time frame only, we have the opportunity to receive a match anywhere from 10-40% extra on bottle deposits.  Its a great way to give to our seniors, so please consider donating your cans and bottles.

AVID Seniors Visit Waldo & Stephens

On Wednesday, February 7th and Friday, February 9th we sent several McKay AVID 12th grade ambassadors to Waldo and Stephens Middle Schools to speak with current 8th grade students about the transition to high school, strategies for managing busy, stressful schedules, and how AVID can play a role in students’ success.  Our seniors shared honestly about the obstacles they’ve faced, and why they have chosen to remain in AVID despite periods of doubt and uncertainty.  They have each been accepted to multiple four-year universities and will be making some big decisions in the next few months!  We’re proud of them for being courageous leaders.
