from McCarthy School Staff
We would like to share some information with incoming families:
- We do not post classroom supply lists as we will make sure students receive all of the materials they will need. In the fall individual teachers may request small items needed for specific classes.
- Summer Reading Lists can be found here
- The first day of school for Grades 1-5 is Wednesday, August 27th. On that day we will also host our incoming kindergarten students for an orientation from 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM.
- The first full day for kindergarten students is Thursday, August 28th.
At the McCarthy School we envision a community of compassionate, respectful, motivated students, staff, and families who work together to achieve academic and social success.
The staff is committed to creating a safe, caring, inclusive and challenging environment in which all students are actively engaged in learning. The focus of all phases of the school day is to challenge students to reach their highest potential, academically, socially, and physically. Students are taught to respect themselves and others, to understand and appreciate differences, and to hold themselves to high standards and expectations for achievement.
