McClure will be hosting its IN-PERSON Open House for families who will be new in the 2023-24 school year. If you have an incoming 6th grader in the 2023-24 school year and/or have a neighborhood friend who has one, please let them know about this event!  The event will take place 6:00-7:00!  

WEB Event Gingerbread House Making! 

Our 8th grade Where Everyone Belongs (WEB) leaders led a group exercise focusing on teamwork (and sweetness!) with their 6th grade Webbies this week. WEB teams worked together to create gingerbread houses and focused on being inclusive, creative, and cooperative.  The outcomes (pictured below) were judged by staff based on 1) most amount of candy used, 2) most creative and 3) best in show.  We are eagerly awaiting the outcome! As you can see, some of our houses went through an earthquake  It was really fun to see our kids working together and having fun…we haven’t done the gingerbread activity since before the pandemic! It felt joyful and yet another return to normalcy that we have been longing for!
