After-School Enrichment - Sept. 17th

Read More

Registration for after school enrichment classes starts September 17th at 7pm.  The fall session will run from October 9th to January 12th. New this year - we are using an online registration system called 6Crickets. It is highly recommended that you set up an account BEFORE registration opens at 7pm. Visit us to learn more.

The PTA needs parent volunteers to facilitate our essential after school enrichment program. Volunteers sign up for 1.20-hour shifts at the same time each week, and help direct traffic and assist providers and kids as needed.  As a bonus, each volunteer has an opportunity to sign their student up for one After-School class for free. Sign up here and contact Nicole.

Are You Connected?

Start the school year by making sure that you have signed up to receive all important communications from the school and your PTA.

Sign up for your class Google Group(s): New for this year, you will need to register for your class Google Group(s).  This self-service sign-up is a change from prior years, but this enables you to always receive your class-specific communications at your preferred email address.  Each class has a separate Google Group to be used throughout the year for communication with teachers, room parents, and other families.  See your class assignment email from school secretary Jane Petrich for sign-up instructions or email for details.

Get automatic calendar updates: View the PTA calendar in your browser or take it with you on your phone.  It updates automatically.  Instructions for your phone, PC, or Mac are at here.

Provide your contact information to the PTA: Each year the PTA publishes a directory of all families and communicates important information throughout the year.  Add or update your information at  If you are a returning family and your information is the same as last year, there is no need to complete this form.  Note also that you can use this form to exclude some or all your information from the directory.

Follow us on Facebook: McDonald International School PTA has its own Facebook page, often providing late-breaking updates and pointers to community events.
