Dear HSA Mckinley Park Families,
As we transition into the month of February we have many updates to share. I am incredibly excited that this week starts the 1st week of Black History Month. A wise man, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., once said, “We are not makers of history. We are made by history.” During this month, we plan to celebrate those individuals that paved the foundation for us to continue to build on.
On February 17th we will have our third and final parent teacher conference. This conference will be virtual and we will be using a more simpler method of communication between teachers and parents. Please make sure to sign up once you receive instructions from our school communication network. There are only four months of school left and we want to make sure you have all your questions answered about your child’s grades and assignments.
We also completed our winter NWEA MAP testing for grades K - 8 as well as PSAT testing for 9th - 11th. Please see your child’s teacher or assistant principal for specific information on their performance.
In addition, please make sure to re-enroll your child for next year if you have not done so already. During the month of March we will have our annual enrollment Lottery which will be held after school on March 4th. If we do not receive your child’s re-enrollment updates on SIS then their seat can be filled during the school lotto system in March so please make sure to complete this task! If you need help please contact the front office.
Parents, you play such an integral part of this journey. I ask that each day you take time to discuss the school day with your child, to review homework with them, and to ensure that they get enough sleep and are prepared for the challenges that awaits them during the next school day. I ask the students to come to school each day with their minds and thoughts set for learning, to be ready for the challenges that will await them at HSA Mckinley Park.
