Principal's Message

  • Dear Parents and Guardians:

    It is my pleasure to welcome you and your child to McKenzie School. Our staff, students, parents/guardians, and community all contribute to the excellent education, fine traditions, safe environment, and high expectations that are present every day. Please take some time to read McKenzie’s handbook. This handbook was created to provide you with information necessary to understand the operation of our school. Included are school policies, regulations, and procedures. I encourage you to read through this handbook carefully, and review its comprehensive contents with your child. Furthermore, parental concern and involvement is essential to your child’s success. McKenzie School strives to keep families knowledgeable about key information and educational opportunities within the district. Therefore, I encourage you to remain informed and interested in your child’s education. With that in mind, please visit our school’s website at as often as you can. McKenzie School promotes the philosophy that a cooperative partnership exists between home and school. As partners in education, we set high academic standards for our children. Working together as a team for the benefit of our children can only have positive results. With this partnership to make our school successful, we are fortunate enough to have an outstanding, active PTA to support many of our programs that take place at McKenzie School. On behalf of the McKenzie faculty, I thank you for sharing your child with us. Working together, can ensure a productive school year filled with academic, social, and emotional progress for every student. I look forward to an exciting and successful year.
