4TH GRADER, CHLOE PRUEY WINS THE RAYMOND HORN AWARD!
McKinley student Chloe Pruey was chosen as the winner of the Raymond Horn award!. Chloe was chosen for her academic growth over the past few years. She has gained confidence in her reading skills and always puts her best efforts forth! Congratulations to Chloe!
Our very own Mrs. Dibling was nominated and won the Franklin B Walter award for special education! Below is the write up that was submitted for Mrs. Dibling.
Dana Dibling has been an intervention specialist in Fairport Harbor for 14 years. During that time, she has shown a great deal of flexibility and has adapted well to change. She cares deeply about her students and remains committed to providing an exceptional level of service even during periods of school closure. While our buildings were learning remotely, Dana made arrangements with families to continue to provide in-person services. Her dedication to her students is evident in her daily interactions. She has served as a role model to other intervention specialists in the district and is always willing to help her colleagues. Thank you Dana for all that you do!

A huge congrats to our very own Nora Urban. Nora is a student at Auburn Career Center in the Teaching Pathways program. Her children's book made the top 10 in the Educator's Rising program!

From start to finish, it was a beautiful day at Cardina Field and Urbanski Field.

Thank you to The civic club for sponsoring a coloring contest for our McKinley students. The Civic Club provided coloring sheets to all of the McKinley Students.
Each student had the opportunity to color their picture and turn it into their classroom teacher. They included their name, teacher's name and Grade level on the back of the sheet. A vote was held and there was one winner per grade level K-5. The winners each received an Easter basket full of goodies. The civic club was also kind enough to be supplying one candy bar per child (including preschool).
Thank you to the Civic Club for sponsoring this fun event and to all of the students who submitted their coloring pages!
