Principal's Message


Good Morning McGaugh Families, 

Well, here we are, entering the last week of the 2020-21 school year! Although this school year had multiple layers of complexity and challenges, the McGaugh community courageously and creatively stepped forward, accepted the challenges, and pushed through the adversities.   
 
Despite all the difficulties of social distancing, face masks, and hand sanitizer, our teachers, staff, parents, and community partners maximized every opportunity for students’ success.  A BIG thank you to the McGaugh PTA and Project Seek. Quite frankly, without their continued support, it would be hard to summarize the year as successful. Thank you for supporting McGaugh teachers! It's true; stars shine brightest in the darkest of nights!  McGaugh's teachers were able to shine because of your support. A special thanks to PTA President, Farnaz Pardasani, and Project Seek President, Julie McMahon, for their extraordinary leadership. 
 
As we look toward 5th-grade promotion and other end-of-the-year activities, your continued support is needed. Again, while we're moving toward a post-pandemic era, we're not quite there yet. You can further support with your continued adherence to all the protocols and policies that we've had in place all year.  
 
Thank you again for such a great year! That’s all for now. 
 
Here are a few things to keep in mind this week: 
 

  • Tuesday, June 8, 2021 | Fifth Grade Promotion 
  • Wednesday, June 9, 2021 | A&B Cohorts (all grade levels) on campus
  • Friday, June 11, 2021 | Last Day of School - Both Cohorts A & B (7:55 AM -  9:55 AM)

Best,
