Dear McKelvie Families ~

The energy at McKelvie was palpable today!  The kids are SO excited about our Faculty Basketball game at BHS at 6:30pm tonight.  This year I have thrown caution to the wind and decided to display my lack of athleticism for all to see.  Despite my rigorous Crossfit routine (I'm smirking as I write this), basketball is far from my wheelhouse.  So - if you need a boost in self esteem, come by and watch us play.  You will consider yourself Olympic material after just a few minutes!

Polite & Right Raffle Winners

K-Z Parent Pick Up - REMINDER
A reminder that if you are picking up your child at the Canopy, please pull ahead. Leaving large spaces between your car and the next causes a traffic jam on County Rd.  Also - if you arrive at 3:25, it is smooth sailing.
