Dear McKinley Families,
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new interim principal of McKinley Elementary School. It is truly an honor to move from assistant principal to serve as interim principal of McKinley in the coming school year. I am thrilled by the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of excellence! I am excited and eager to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.
Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by Team McKinley and Ms. Lynnette Dixon by building strong relationships with families, students, and community partners. We continue to focus on academic excellence, building strong social emotional skills, and ensuring that every student has the supports they need to be successful.
All of us at McKinley are eager and excited to begin what promises to be our best year yet. The 2021-2022 school year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and relationship-centered.
As your principal, it is important to me that every parent, guardian, student, and educator who steps through our doors is excited to be here! This vision enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input; please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.
I look forward to working with you, as a team, to help each student at McKinley meet their goals and have a successful school year!
Dr. Randy Darr
