Welcome to McGaughey!
On behalf of the entire faculty and staff at McGaughey, we want to welcome all new and returning parents and students to the 2012-2013 school year. We look forward to partnering together in educational and social efforts in order to assist the McGaughey Busy Bees to “Be the best you can be!” As your child begins their educational career at McGaughey, please feel welcome to ask questions, visit, assist in activities, and become part of our extended family.
McGaughey Elementary is a pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and 1st grade attendance center. Our enrollment is approximately 400 students and is comprised of two pre-kindergarten classes (AM & PM), eight kindergarten classrooms, and nine 1st grade classrooms. The gym and cafeteria are very busy, as we have two physical education teachers who offer the students daily activity. Our other specialist areas include art, music, library, resource/special education, remedial reading, speech and social work. Our secretary is an integral part of our school, and will greet you and make you feel welcome as you enter the building. Our support staff such as, custodians, lunch helpers, playground supervisors, and teaching assistants all pull together to create a family atmosphere where students feel safe and secure. We also have a strong parent-teacher organization which supports us in many family-related activities.
A nurturing, family friendly environment with academic excellence for all students is the climate that we strive for at McGaughey. We expect the students, teachers, office staff, and support staff to "Be the best they can be!"
