Principal's Message

Greetings, McKinley Families!


Welcome to McKinley Elementary School! The teachers and staff are honored to have the opportunity of working with your children to fulfill the LBUSD vision of preparing all students for College and Career Readiness. We embrace this challenge and are committed to working with each young scholar to reach his or her maximum learning potential. Parent and family involvement is an important component to bridging the home-school connection and promoting student achievement. There are many opportunities for parents and family members to become involved with student life on a regular basis.


Thank you for entrusting us to educate your children. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming McKinley event!

From April 1 to April 30 the library will welcome back its overdue books and waive associated fines. Return any undamaged, overdue library materials to your local Long Beach Public Library location, and your overdue fines will be waived.

On Friday, May 27 McKinley Elementary School hosted its 4th annual Cougar Cardio fundraiser. With DJ Danny D spinning the tunes McKinley Cougars from Pre-K through 5th grade ran, jogged and walked their way to fitness. Parents and family members joined in to cheer on their young scholars. Many even exercised with the students. In addition to dedicating a day to getting fit our scholars raised an amazing $15,500. This money will be used directly to fund needed school supplies, as well as future events and activities. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of Cougar Cardio #4!
