September News

Thank you so much for making the beginning of the year SHINE at McIntire School! I’m looking forward to a great year of living our mission of "High Levels of Learning for All!" In the first eight days of school we had almost 250 positive behavior referrals! McIntire students go above and beyond to be safe, respectful and responsible! Last week was a very tough week at our school as we learned of the death of one of our kindergartners. Thank you so much to parents and staff for the support provided during this time. Our kids truly amaze me with their kind hearts and resiliency through these experiences.

Check out these positive referrals! Great job!

I appreciate the feedback given regarding newsletters from the office. In order to help with communication between school and home, I will provide a monthly newsletter and calendar from the office for everyone in paper and then also post the information on this blog. I will also use the blog to showcase special events and pictures/videos of the great things happening at our school. I'll continue to email when the blog is updated.
McIntire expectations are at least 20 minutes of reading each night. Imagine the possibilities if kids read even more!

Mornings at McIntire
We have worked this year to open the doors a little earlier to help with congestion and give kids more time for breakfast. The doors will open to go to the gym at 7:40. There isn't supervision before this time, so please do not drop students off. We do have before and after school care available (BACPAC) if you need childcare options. Also, just a reminder that the bridge on F Hwy by Westminster will be under construction beginning September 7th. It should be finished after ten days. We do anticipate this slowing us down a little at arrival and dismissal, but we will work to adjust as much as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

The End of the Day 
Please make all transportation changes prior to 2:30 each day by calling the office at 590-8500 or sending a note with your child. All bus changes should be made through the transportation department at 590-8020. Please don't forget your hangtags for your cars if you are picking up students after school. Thank you so much for your help!
