While the high school halls remain empty a little while longer, the walls are filling up to give students a warm welcome when they return. Our school counselor and high school secretary personalized the bulletin board they are pictured in with every high school student’s name.
The McGregor Community Fitness Center will be opening again on Monday, December 21st. Following the governor's orders, members must wear a mask the entire time they are in the fitness center. View the fitness center page on our website for holiday hours. We can't wait to see you!

The McGregor 2nd graders have also been busy in the art room creating snowmen out of various pieces of wood. Great job 2nd graders!!
The 1st graders have been busy in the art classroom making Christmas trees out of pine cones. Great job 1st graders!
Besides the pictures of Christmas trees the 3rd grade also made some 3D trees that are on display in the library.
It's beginning to feel like the holiday season in school. The third grade did a great job of creating Christmas tree pictures.
The 1st graders were busy creating owls in art class. They tied this in with the story about the little owl that was found in the Christmas tree bound for Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. Please enjoy the gifts of the first graders during this holiday season.
The kindergarten class has been busy making snowmen and snow flakes to display outside their room. Great job kids! It looks wonderful!
