Welcome Friends & Families

Welcome Back Students!

We look forward to another great school year!

On behalf of the staff at William McKinley Elementary School #39, welcome to the 2018-2019 academic year!! We are looking forward to building a positive and productive partnership with you to ensure all of our students reach their full potential.

We understand that in order to achieve academically, students need support from both the home and school. We appreciate the vital role parents play in their child’s success; thus, we will rely on you to support our efforts at the school level. As partners, we share the responsibility for the success of all students and want you to know that we will always put students first in any decision that is made at William McKinley.
