Principal's Message

Hello McGaugh Families,

Our Sea Lions engaged in an amazing week of making connections. PEACE Week was filled with activities to promote compassion and acceptance of everyone. We were so honored to have Brent Poppen visit our school and our classrooms to share his message of COMPASSION, ACCEPTANCE, and LOVE.  If you are interested in purchasing one of Mr. Poppen's books, please return this FORM to our office by WEDNESDAY. He will sign every book and personally deliver the books to the classrooms. Thank you, parents, for your participation with our PTA.  Your donations and participation in our fundraising events allowed us to fund such an important experience for our students!
   
 Another highlight of Peace Week was empathy day, which featured McGaugh’s annual “Come Walk in my Shoes”. This event, first started in 1997 and since then has been replicated in other schools across the nation. It is a special hands-on program that involves all students and teachers and provides an avenue for them to explore the world of individuals who in their day-to-day lives also live with physical and or developmental challenges. “Come Walk in my Shoes” is about tolerance, comfort zones, and inclusion. It is truly a day for students to learn empathy, compassion, and awareness.
