Welcome to the William McKinley Elementary School CJUSD page. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I hope that you find it to be a helpful tool in learning about the many excellent programs and learning opportunities that we have for our McKinley Bulldogs.
The administration and staff of William McKinley Elementary School appreciate and encourage community involvement. We believe that a strong partnership between parents, community members, and the school is essential to maintain a safe and supportive learning community where academic expectations are high, and personal growth is valued. Therefore, we strive to find ways to involve our community and bring them into our school via grade level performances, honor assemblies & recognition events, community picnics, fall and spring festivals, family dances, and our annual McKinley Dance. We are truly grateful for the extraordinary dedication of our community, PTA, and school volunteers.
The highly qualified and dedicated staff of William McKinley Elementary School is committed to meeting the needs of all learners. Through grade level and multi-grade collaboration, staff members work together to provide differentiated instruction and monitor student progress. Our McKinley Bulldogs are provided with opportunities to further develop individual interests through project-based learning opportunities at each grade level. Challenging programs within our curriculum include the Wonders Language Arts Program, the Go Math Mathematics program, and our standards-based focused on curriculum. Students also participate in opportunities to work with technology, learn music, create art, and we support health via physical education.
In addition, we strive to promote community and understanding to our Bulldogs via guidance classes offered by our school counselor, as well as with our PAWS school wide expectations - Personal Best, Act Responsibly, Work & Play Safely and Show Respect.
I want to thank all members of the William McKinley Elementary School Community for their support. I look forward to continuing the vital work we have begun together, promoting student achievement and fostering a love of learning.
