Good-Bye to 2017-2018
staff The McClellan Staff just wanted to thank all of the families that have touched our hearts over the years.  This was a bitter-sweet ending to the year.  We are sad to see our 2-5 students move on, but we are excited to build a new foundation and future as a K-2 building next year.  In the videos below you can see our parade of students honoring those 2-5 students with one last walk through our halls!

Washington Wild Things McClellan Reading Club Night
Saturday, June 9, is our McClellan Night at the Washington Wild Things game.  The game starts at 7:05, but don't forget to arrive by 6:20 and meet by the Desert Den so your child can be a part of the parade of students.  This is always a fun event and we always have a great number of McClellan families in attendance.  A reminder that even if you child did not earn a free ticket through our Accelerated Reader program, they (and your family) are more than welcome to come join us in the fun that night!
Accelerated Reader Celebration
On Tuesday we held our Accelerated Reader Celebration, honoring and rewarding those students who reached their AR goals this year.  Since this year was a sports theme with "I'm an All-St(AR)" Reader", we raffled off a ton of sports-themed prizes donated from our PTA.  They also donated gift cards to Target, Amazon, Best Buy, Game Stop, the Disney Store, Dick's Sporting Goods, and the Pittsburgh Pirates.  One lucky student at each grade level (2-5) went home with a Kindle.  Two students at each grade level were also honored as the "high-flyers" for the year and received a poster signed by Chase Winovich (TJ Grad playing football at Michigan), a squishy sports ball, and a $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble.  Lastly, there was a surprise raffle item donated by one of our PTA parents, Mrs. Manculich... a Penguins Jersey autographed by Kris Letang!!!  Thank you to our PTA, students, parents and teachers for making this once again a successful ye(AR)!!!!!  Keep reading over the summer!

Kids of Steel
On Saturday, May 5, McClellan students ran in the Pittsburgh Kids Marathon.  They have been running in the mornings at school, and participating in other sporting activities to accumulate 26 miles.  Their last mile they run together, along with schools from all across the area, on the streets of Pittsburgh.  It was a beautiful morning for a run... starting at PNC Park, crossing the Clemente Bridge, and finishing near the Point.  Check out the pictures and video below...
And They're Off...

Neighborhood Nest Watch
Thank you to PTA parent Mrs. Schlott, who works at the Aviary, for arranging the visit from Ornithologist Bob Mulvihill.  Our 4th and 5th grade students got to see hands-on how local migratory and nesting patterns are researched and tracked through the "bird banding" program.  Not only did the students get to see birds that are from our surrounding habitat at McClellan, but we also got a rare visit from an Oven bird  (If you are like me and had no clue why this was so special, check out this link).  Also, take a look at the pictures below to see all of the birds that visited us.
Earth Day Celebration
On April 20th, the PTA held their Earth Day Celebration here at McClellan Elementary.  Thank you to all the families that came out to help clean up our grounds, beautify our butterfly garden, and take part in some fun activities.  Check out the fun below...
Spring Concert
On April 4, 2018, the Elementary Music Department held their first ever combined Spring Concert.  Students from all three elementary schools in Band, Orchestra, and Chorus came together for a wonderful night of musical melodies.  Thanks to the hard work and dedication by Ms. Testa, Mrs. Myers, Mrs. Davis, and Mrs. Davidson, this night was a huge success!  
 
If you did not get to make it out to see this wonderful event, please enjoy the LiveStream recording below...

Bring In Your Box Tops

Artist of the Year
Each month, Mrs. Bowser selects 2 artists of the month from each grade level.  Throughout the 2017-2018 School Year I posted those winners here on our website.  At the end of the year, 6 artists were selected to be nominated as artist of the year: Alyssa Linn, Denika Bergman, Arlee Kynor, Noah Carnevale, Connor Horgan, Tyla Kynor.  Their artwork was displayed in our lobby, and the teachers at McClellan voted for their favorite piece.  This year's Artist of the Year goes to...
