Please help McCallum by completing these two important tasks:

1. Family Survey – We are seeking your feedback to help us know our strengths and areas of growth. Right now our percentage of respondents is too low to give accurate data. Please take a few moments to fill out this survey.

2. Registration – Please complete the online registration for your student if they will be continuing with us for the 2022-23 school year. You can find this in the Parent Portal (look for tile AISD Student Registration)

Mark Your Calendar – Expect Respect Parent Session

En lieu of a Principal Coffee/Tea this month, we will be gathering over Zoom to learn more  about sexual assault, consent, and ways you can grow your parent tool kit in this area. We have partnered with SAFE and Expect Respect to help our community understand boundaries/consent and how to connect with resources when needed. I highly recommend
attending this parent session. We will record the session for anyone who can’t make it.

The session will be co-presented by staff members of the SAFE alliance: Sexual Assault Victim Advocacy Program Manager Holly Bowles and Community Education Director Vincent Tovar.

April 21, 2022

Zoom (Code will be sent week of session)



From the Mac Library

First, a HUGE thank you all for the awesome book donations, which help us stretch our limited funds.

Mac families donated over 50 new books for our collection! We will continue to keep the Knights’ Library Wish List updated and available

This month, we’re building a maker area using materials collected from around the school.

So far, we have a die-cut machine, tons of magazines, basic school supplies, sewing machines, postcards, and a small but growing collection of reusable odds and ends.

As a more-creative-than-average community, we expect that many may have picked up (and then dropped) various crafting endeavors. Let McCallum students give any of your neglected COVID craft supplies new life!

Here is a wish list compiled by Library Interns. Please send donations to the Library.
