Welcome to 2019/2020 School Year!
We are off to a great start this year! Thanks to everyone who came out for Registration, WEB Day, and our Eagle Spirit Kickoff Event!
BREAKFAST IS HERE!
The McAuliffe Breakfast Program is here! Breakfast at school is affordable! If you qualify for free and reduced price meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no additional paperwork. If you must pay, breakfast costs $2.25. Nowhere else will you find a balanced breakfast at such a low cost.

So take advantage of this opportunity to start the day on the right foot. Your child will find breakfast at school provides not only a nutritious meal but also a relaxed atmosphere for socializing with friends and siblings.
Birthday Wishes!
Parents, one last “Back to School” item to check off your list. The Make a Wish Club at McAuliffe sponsors the “Birthday Wishes” on the school marquee. For only $20 you can celebrate your kid’s birthday AND support the Make a Wish Foundation. All of the money is sent directly to the Make a Wish Foundation. Two easy steps:   Click this link  and hit “birthday wishes.” Complete the information and then hit “donation” at the bottom. That takes you straight to the Make a Wish Foundation and you can make your contribution directly to the Foundation. Minimum donation: $20.00. 
 
McAuliffe has granted 4 wishes and we will be celebrating Wish #5 this school year, with your help!
