BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT FOR PARENTS
Each Fall, parents of all McNear students are invited to meet their child’s teacher. Teachers present their academic programs and general expectations for the coming year. Sign-ups are held for classroom volunteers and other school/PTA projects. (September) (Sorry, we are unable to provide child care for this parent meeting.)
Children may purchase books, posters, school supplies and videos during Book Fair Week. The fair is sponsored by Scholastic Books and the PTA. Coffee and gourmet desserts are available on the Friday night of the Fair. Proceeds from sales go directly to the library or classrooms for books and software. (Fall & Spring)

More than just a fundraiser, this popular event is a community challenge to get moving and have a great time doing it. (October)
Kids collect pledges from family and friends (either a lump sum or per lap), then they run for a 20 minutes with their grade level. Volunteers mark kids arms as they run and record their totals. It’s quickly becoming a great McNear tradition.
Find more information on the current year’s Jogathon here.
Kindergarten and transitional kindergarten orientation occurs the day before school starts, giving our newest students a chance to meet the teachers, get comfortable in the classroom, and make new friends! Specific information will be sent home in early August.
