Black History Month

Black History Month

Earlier in the month, students in second grade participated in a research project to learn about important African American figures and their contributions to science, math, sports, and the arts. The posters the second graders created are placed outside the library so all students can see the information. We would love for the rest of the school to also learn about these amazing people and the impact they have had on our society. Below you will find a list of the people on display. We are asking families to take a minute to look up a fact, a quote, or an interesting piece of information about one of our figures. Write your child's name and the fact/quote/information on the hearts that were sent home and return it to school. If you’d like to send in a heart for more than one famous figure, click here for another copy of the letter. We will add it to our wall so the knowledge we have about these important members of our society continues to grow.    


Thank you so much for your continued support in our learning!


Our Historical Figures:

Simone Biles; Barack Obama; Katherine Johnson; 

Michael Jordan; Maya Angelou; Thurgood Marshall


McClellan Friendship Parties

On Friday, February 14, we held our annual Friendship Parties.  Thank you to the PTA and the numerous parent volunteers that made this such a fun day.  We couldn't do it without you.  If you didn't get a chance to attend, please take a look at the pictures below...

At McClellan... We ROCK!

One of the district initiatives is for every school to develop a School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention & Support plan (SWPBIS).  We wanted a systematic way to teach and reward positive behaviors, so we developed the following pledge:
 
Whenever students display one of the positive behaviors listed in our pledge, a staff member gives them a "ROCK Star Cash" coupon. The students write their name on it and place their cash coupons in a bin located in the school lobby.  At the end of each month, 4 ROCK Star Students are picked from each K-2 grade. Student photos are showcased in the school’s "Rock Star Hall of Fame" for the rest of the year.  Take a look at the winners for January below...

Earning For Learning

There are a number of ways other than selling fundraising items that can earn money for our school.  Please make sure you are taking part in the following programs:
 
Box Tops for Education
Apples for the Students (through Giant Eagle)
S.E.E.D. Program (through Shop 'n Save)
 
For more information on how to sign up for these, please click here to view the PTA flyer. 
Kindergarten Safe Snack List

2019-2020 Car Rider Registration and Information

In order to ensure the safest and most efficient methods for student dismissal, the West Jefferson Hills School District is continuing to use a system at the elementary and intermediate schools for those students who are being picked up at the end of the school day.  The system will utilize car tags and backpack tags to identify students and ensure that they are released only to drivers who are approved to pick them up.  Click here for the registration form and letter.
