McKinley PTA offers activities such as afterschool programs, family nights, art education, book fairs and reading programs.  

We provide activities for state and nationally sponsored events like Start the Art Week, Red Ribbon Week and Earth Day, and participate in the Reflections art contest and International Walk to School Day.  

We host a pumpkin patch, a variety show, Valentine’s parties and devote an entire month to college awareness. 

In addition, PTA pays for the buses for all of the field trips, supports the Accelerated Reader program at McKinley by paying for all of the tests and prizes and purchases clothes for the nurse’s office for children to have if they have an accident or big spill.  

PTA sends a low-income student to camp every summer through the Burbank Coordinating Council Campership Program, organizes and pays for many of the assemblies at McKinley, and pays for a representative to go a Legislative Conference.  

PTA brings juice and cookies to the kindergarten classes on the first day of school, donates $500 every year to the scholarship fund, and pays for books so McKinley parents can take English classes right here at McKinley.
