Welcome to the 2014 – 2015 school year! We are off to a great start with many new things happening. We began our year with online enrollment for our families – thank you for participating – we hope you found the enrollment experience a little quicker for you. We are also getting ready to begin implementing our Hall Pass Visitor System. This was a program chosen by our Superintendent and Board of Education to help us keep our safe schools safer and also count the hundreds of hours of volunteer time given to our schools. Be watching for information as it comes out so we can help you better understand our changing system. In September, we will ask all visitors to sign in when visiting/working with students during the school day 8:50 – 4:20.

BOE RecognitionMcLean Magnet also received some very special recognition for great efforts to make our school a better place. Our No Tardy Tators program earned national recognition from Safe & Civil Schools as a way to help motivate students to come to school on time. Our attendance data showed gains and we will continue this work to ensure that all students are here benefiting from school with our On time…Every day…All day efforts. Our teachers are teaching from bell to bell and we want to make sure that all of our students are here for their learning!
 
We were recognized for our school and community recycling efforts – last year we were the top recycler from Elementary Schools, earning $300 for our school. We had the highest weight per student recycling 47.53 pounds per student. Thank you for the work and please continue to utilize our recycling bins!
