Behavior Expectations at McKinley

The ‘Eagle Way’ at McKinley encompasses three primary behavior expectations of all students and staff: 1) Be respectful: This includes being kind, caring, and nice to others as well as listening to and following directions the first time they are given. 2) Be responsible: This means doing what you are supposed to do the first time. 3) Be safe: Which means we keep our hands to ourselves, walk while in the building, and thinking before acting.

To learn more about the expectations at our school, check out this overview. Discuss the expectations and what they mean with your child(ren). It’s important they make the connection between their positive behavior and academic achievement in school.
