Principal's Message

  • Ann Allen, Principal

    Dear Families, 

    During this holiday season I find myself reflecting upon how spectacular our school year has been, and also feeling profoundly grateful to work with the students, parents, teachers, and staff at McAuliffe Middle School. 

    It is evident that parents care deeply about our school community. They donate their time in support of our school and our students, doing everything from building furniture, hosting dances and socials, fundraising for clubs and activities, and providing luncheons and all kinds of treats for staff. They regularly support our community service efforts by participating in canned food drives, decorating pumpkins for Miller’s Children’s Hospital, supporting the Make-A-Wish Club, and donating gift cards to make the holidays a little brighter for our families in need. And they support and guide their students every day through the academic and social rigors of the middle school experience. From my heart to yours, please accept my thanks.

    I can say with confidence that we believe that your children are a gift that you share with us each day. Teachers connect with their students both personally and academically, forging relationships that often endure well after they leave our school. And we truly love them! Thank you for choosing to send them to us, as they bring us joy and laughter every day. 

    On behalf of the staff and administration at McAuliffe, I wish you all holidays filled with peace and love, and a New Year filled with blessings. 

    Annie Allen, Principal 


  • Canned food drive a big success!

    The McAuliffe Middle School community has done it again! The week after Thanksgiving we partnered with the H.O.P.E. food bank to collect canned goods for needy families. We are proud to report that we collected over 2000 cans! This equates to more than one can per student.
