A strong volunteer program strengthens parent-school communication.  Community volunteers share special talents with our students.  At McKinley there are many opportunities for parents and other interested persons to be involved as volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jackie Mason, volunteer coordinator, at jmason@cr.k12.ia.us  or download Volunteer Form.  


8TH GRADE Financial Literacy Fair - May 15 (8:45-noon)

On May 15, 8th graders will participate in the Linn County Financial Literacy Fair at the Kirkwood Linn County Regional Center in Hiawatha in the mornings. In class, students learn about life decisions that affect financial well-being. Based on their interests, they select a career, and determine a starting salary. Then they attend The Fair to face the reality of monthly bills for necessities (housing, transportation, food, etc.) and budgeting. When they have made their financial decisions, they’ll meet one-on-one with a financial counselor to do the math and discuss their choices! A brief volunteer training is provided before students arrive. No experience necessary! CLICK HERE for more information; or, respond to this e-mail.

Engineering Tech 

Mrs. Clendineng is looking for a volunteer to help in her classroom. The volunteer would help students with ideas, or help them fix their projects, or help them follow directions. Times would be: 7:50-9:29am Mon–Thurs. and 10:25-11:14am Mon-Thurs. It wouldn’t require any background knowledge, just a little creative thinking and helping answer questions about directions. If interested, please e-mail Mrs. Clendineng at jclendineng@cr.k12.ia.us or respond to this e-mail. Thank you.
