OUR EVENTS

The PA plans, sponsors and organizes a number of events throughout the entire year.  We pride ourselves on creating wonderful events that enrich the lives of our students, parents, teachers and staff!  No matter what your interests, we have something for everyone!  We hope you will take some time to learn more about all of our events below and we look forward to seeing you at the next one! 

Teacher Appreciation Week is one of the most exciting and special weeks of the year.  This week is set aside annually to honor the amazing teachers and staff of McGinnis Woods, who give of themselves to inspire and encourage our students each and every day of the year.

A favorite event of the McGinnis Woods Family is the Annual Valentine's Dance.  Unlike some other schools in our area, McGinnis Woods invites ALL of our families to join us in the celebration!  Children from the preschool through the middle school come together to the dance.  Traditionally, we offer heavy appetizers for an evening meal, a dance floor and a top area DJ to complete our package.  Teachers, parents, students and friends spend time together and rarely are they sitting down!  The Valentine's Dance is a great way to see the community that is built at McGinnis Woods.

McGinnis Woods has partnered with Boosterthon Fun Run for many years.  Boosterthon is a unique program that wraps Fitness, Leadership, and Character together in an unforgettable experience tailored for our school.  Our students learn that fitness is fun as they prepare for the day of the Boosterthon Fun Run.

Square 1 Art is a wonderful program, created by a former art teacher, that utilizes our kids' artwork in order to raise money for our school by turning that art into useful keepsakes.  From pot holders to aprons, tote bags, mugs, and t-shirts to jewelry, stationary, travel mugs and mouse pads, there is something for everyone!  And with Mother's day coming soon after delivery, this makes Square 1 Art a wonderful fundraiser opportunity for our school.

We know we have great teachers, but we have awesome parents too!  Participation and feedback from our parents helps guide our goals, events and objectives as a PA Board.  We love hearing from teachers, students and especially parents on how we can improve the McGinnis Woods experience.  Busy schedules can make it difficult to reach out or attend meetings, so with our PA Coffee event, we come to you.  Nearly every month, we host a coffee station in the preschool or elementary school during drop-off.  Several representatives of the PA Board attend to help in any way we can.

Each year we partner with Tanner Photography for an all day family photography event.  For a nominal donation to the school, you receive a dedicated sitting time and a free 11x14 print of your family portrait.  The sitting includes three poses which typically include the whole family, just the parents and just the kids.  You will have the opportunity to review all of the proofs and order more prints or digital prints if you'd like.  Best of all, the event is held right at our school so it couldn't be more convenient!

Each year the McGinnis Woods parent Association sponsors Teacher Grants.  Grant requests are written and applied for by classroom and allows teachers to provide for unique opportunities or resources that will enhance classroom teaching and learning.  The grants are a tangible way that the Parent Association gives back to each of our students each year.

Picture a giant inflatable movie screen, blankets scattered on the lawn and LOTS of laughter!  This is a quick snapshot of the year event that is favored by many.  Scene on the Green is a fun night out on the playground centered on families and fun.  There is so much fun packed in one evening with the overall theme being community.  As the daylight turns to dusk and the sky gets dark, we show a family friendly movie on the giant inflatable screen.  Kids take their shoes off, blankets line the grass and memories are made.

At McGinnis Woods, one thing is universal....we all think we have the best teachers on the planet!  As a PA Board, we work to celebrate this fact with our families.  We hold Teacher Appreciation Lunches every quarter.  A portion of the PA fees that are collected upon enrollment are used to support these events for the teachers.
