  • Book Fair is Here! The Book Fair is this week through Saturday, April 18th. It will be open before and after school, and during lunch in Room 61. On Saturday, it will be open until 2:00pm. Come see the great selection of books for sale and help raise money for the library!

    Astronomy Night at McAuliffe! All McAuliffe families are invited on Wednesday, April 22nd to view student astronomy presentations and look at the night sky through a telescope. The event is scheduled from 7:00pm - 9:00pm with telescope viewings starting at 8:30pm. Please see the flyer for more information.

    Want to plan ahead for the next school year? The McAuliffe Student Calendar for the 2015-16 school year is now available. The elementary and high school calendars are also available on the district website.

    Need to make more room in your closet? Why not clean out your closets and drawers and make a donation to our McAuliffe Jazz Band? The Jazz Band is collecting shoes, clothing, sheets, comforters, bedspreads, purses, belts, backpacks, hats, and stuffed animals now through mid-April, 2015. Our goal is to collect 5,000 pairs of shoes and 5,000 pounds of clothing. With your help, we can do it because last year, we collected over 12,000 pounds of clothing and just over 3,000 pairs of shoes. You may drop off your donations in the front office or before and after school at The Outpost. We even have donation slips for your taxes! Thank you for supporting McAuliffe Jazz.
    Remember to get in the SPIRIT and support your favorite College by wearing your college t-shirt on the fourth Friday of every month!

Principal's Message

Ann Allen, PrincipalWelcome back to all of you for what I hope was a beautiful and restful spring break!  The upcoming weeks will be busy. Registration for current 6th, 7th and 8th graders will take place. Two Parent Nights for 8th graders will be taking place before the end of the month, and I encourage all parents and students to attend.  When making the transition from middle school to high school it is critical to have all the information you need to feel confident about your children  moving forward.  

This time of the year is bittersweet. I always feel happy, as I know our 8th grade students are well prepared and ready to move on. I also feel some sadness, as do our teachers, for we have watched your children transform into amazing young adults and have a place in our hearts for all of them. Middle school is a precious time, and I hope that we have served you well.

Although we will be busy, please do not forget that we are here to support and serve our students and our parents. Please do hesitate to drop in or call us if you need anything - we are happy to h
elp you.


Annie Allen
