McKinley's New Staff Lounge

The staff at McKinley Elementary are grateful to several colleagues who put in work over winter break to give their fellow staff members a big surprise.

Four students stand outside in a line, holding hands and passing a hula hoop from one arm to another.

Arrows painted on concrete all go in the same direction, with the words "Peace Path" painted at the bottom.

Learn about the Peace Path at McKinley Elementary School, where students practice conflict resolution and mediation skills on recess.
