• Dear Wildcat Families,


    I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break. As August quickly comes to a close we are eager to welcome your children back to McCleary School for an outstanding 2018-19 school year. Our staff, have been working throughout the summer months preparing the building for another amazing school year.

    McCleary School takes great pride in creating an educational atmosphere where students can learn in a caring and creative environment. Together our staff encourages students to engage in a lifelong love of learning. As we focus on student achievement we will provide a variety of academic and educational experiences that promote student growth and learning throughout the year. In our newly developed team environment teachers will regularly collaborate, analyze data, plan instruction, and develop common assessments to ensure student achievement is attained throughout each grade level.

    During the upcoming school year I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s learning. Parent involvement plays a critical role in our school’s success.

    Ways to support and increase your child’s academic success include:

    • Make attendance a PRIORITY including limiting tardiness and absences
    • Check Parent Portal regularly to stay informed of student progress
    • Communicate often with your child’s teacher
    • Read with your child at least 20 minutes a day
    • Limit television and social media, encourage outside play
    • Review the school day with your child 

    The staff and I are looking forward to an educationally rewarding school year with you and your children. I hope that you will visit and volunteer often.

    Don’t Forget to attend our Open House BBQ on Tuesday, August 28, from 5-7pm, to take a tour and meet your student’s teacher

    With Wildcat Pride,


    Rick Brownell
