Today the seniors beat the juniors in the volleyball match for homecoming week! The high school also voted today for the king and queen which will be announced at coronation on Friday!
Congratulations to our McGregor Elementary Students of the Month for January. These young people have done a great job of living up to the Mercury Ways. I'd like to thank Pine Insurance Agency and Nate Jackson for providing the t-shirts for the students. We posted their individual pictures the other day but thought we'd show them with their new shirts. Way to go!!
I had the pleasure to watch the kindergarten in action today working on subtraction problems. Ms. K. had them working with sharks and gummy bears. The students had a great time figuring out the math problems and in the end they got to be the shark and had to eat the gummy bears.
The after school Super Heroes Club have been busy with some artwork. Check out the pictures of the snakes they made.
Did you know that this week is School Board Recognition Week? The McGregor School Board is committed to ensuring that our students receive a high quality education. Thank you Liz, Bethany, Jennifer, Heather, Jordan, Larry, and Pat for the tremendous amount of time you devote and the time you sacrifice for our kids, staff, and school. Your leadership is appreciated.
Did you know that School Bus Driver Appreciation week is this week: Feb 21st - Feb 27th. I would like to thank all of these special people who work for McGregor Schools in transporting our most precious assets daily - our students. Our drivers have stepped up big these last 12 months in being flexible in their work of getting our kids back and forth, as well as meal deliveries, and food deliveries. They have gone above and beyond their typical duties to serve our kids and community. Thank you for all you do.

2nd grade had some basic computer coding happening in the hallway with the students. The little device will follow the line that is drawn and do simple movements with the different colors.
It was a busy day at McGregor Elementary. It was hot chocolate and pajama day. We also had Valentine's day activities, as well as Day 100 of school. (actually it was day 101 but we combined them) Loads of fun for the students and staff.
The third graders practiced fractions today by making a Valentine’s Trail Mix!
