Summer Book Swap Days

McKinley School is fortunate to have been provided with a generous grant to purchase brand new books for our students to borrow over the summer. Your child has chosen a selection of books to read independently or with an adult. Please take advantage of our Summer Book Swap Days on Fridays in the McKinley School Library from 1:00pm-3:00pm. Come get new books, visit with McKinley teachers and meet up with other McKinley readers.

  • June 29: 1:00pm-3:00pm
  • July 13, 20 & 27: 1:00pm-3:00pm
  • August 3, 10 & 17: 1:00pm-3:00pm

At the end of the summer, bring back books you’ve read (and the bags if you received one) so that we can continue the summer book borrowing program for years to come!

Come Hear Some Laughs and Help Raise Money for Operation Warm

Grab some friends and attend “Comedy for a Cause” on Saturday, July 28, 7:30pm, at Fairfield University’s Gonzaga Auditorium. The Fairfield Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation raises money annually for “Operation Warm,” which makes sure that any Fairfield child that needs a warm winter coat, gets a warm winter coat. Many McKinley families directly benefit from “Operation Warm,” so come on out to support your McKinley family.

The evening features comedian Earl David Reed, with his show “The Secret of My Unsuccess,” and as seen on HBO, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and more, plus Fairfield Police Chief Gary MacNamara as host, and promises to be a night of fun and laughs.

Tickets are $25 general admission and $50 VIP package (includes pre-show wine and beer, light fare, meet & greet with comedian Earl David Reed and a reserved seat at the show). For info and tickets, send an email to comedy@iaff1426.org.
