The Sharing Committee is hosting two donation drives for Carman-Buckner Elementary School, our sister school in Waukegan.
Please spring clean those closets and donate gently used (clothing (kids size 0-20; adult S-M), shoes, baby essentials, toys, books) and new (socks, underwear, pajamas, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, baby diapering/feeding/safety supplies) items to children living in homeless and low income situations.
Most needed items right now are: tennis shoes, rain jackets, rain boots, and clothing for older children (youth size 10 to an adult M).
The end of the school year is fast-approaching and plans are in full swing to send-off our 4th graders to HMS with a fun party that will include a video commemorating all the years they spent at McKenzie! Please submit your photos by 5/15.
Check out this video of our 3rd and 4th graders attending an assembly led by Victor Pacini during RED Week.
Support our environment during the Earth Week. Walk or ride your bike to school is encouraged all week (and all year!) and kids will be counting the # of cars on Tuesday and Wednesday in hopes that the number will decrease.
Please help us appreciate our wonderful teachers and staff with a luncheon at the end of the Staff Appreciation Week. more >>
Presented by the Power Up to Play Committee, this will be a run/walk with option for a 5k or a 3k for the entire family and McKenzie staff. more >>
