Message from the PTA President
Hello friends and families, welcome back!!! I’m very thankful to be you McKitrick Elementary PTA President for the 2020-2021 school year. It’s the start of a new school year for our children. They are growing up so fast! This year we all had to make a hard decision on schooling for our children and I know you didn’t take it lightly. We will be working hard to do what’s best for all our McKitrick families and we will be supporting Yvonne T. McKitrick Elementary School in their efforts to do so as well.
NEW MCKITRICK FAMILIES
If you are a new McKitrick family, please email us at [email protected] so we can send you a welcome email kit. This is a great way to get tips on what to expect and ease into the new school year.
The Boosterthon fundraiser is currently scheduled for November. In a new twist, to keep with social distancing while still keeping the event fun and lively for the children, we will be switching from a Boosterthon Fun Run to a “virtual” Boosterthon DanceFit. We know the students are going to love this! More information on the Boosterthon DanceFit fundraiser will be available in the fall. Thanks to the Boosterthon fundraiser, we have already raised over $33,000 towards the new track!!!
As a parent, I know how busy life can get. It sometimes is difficult to find a good work/life balance but there are always things we can do. It can be as simple as asking your child about their school day or helping to get them started on their homework.
In addition to engaging your child directly, another great way to get involved is to partner with the PTA. The most common option is to BECOME a MEMBER of the PTA. Membership fees are $4.80-$6.00 depending on how many you are purchasing. Your membership even unlocks some corporate discounts (example: discounted LEGOLAND tickets).
Another way to help is by DONATING. There are several options available. You can donate directly to the PTA, to the Track Fund (to build a new track for the McKitrick Students), or you can donate to the 5th Grade Activities fund. Don’t forget to sponsor a child in our Boosterthon fundraiser!!!
Also, we always welcome BUSINESS SPONSORSHIPS. If you are interested in becoming a Business Partner please reach out to Lindsay Jimison for details at [email protected]

Our school staff, teachers, and the PTA are all here with a goal of doing what’s best for our children and we cannot do it without your support. Thank you for all you do. Let’s have a great year!
Billy Stahl, PTA President
