Principal's Message

Sharon Walker-Hood
McCord is an AWESOME school filled with many possibilities!  We have dedicated teachers, enthusiastic kids, and amazing parents!  A day doesn’t pass without me finding a reason to smile and marvel.
As a mom and as an educator, I believe that schools should be places where kids  feel safe, welcomed, and are successful.  For this to happen connections from school to home and from home to school are necessary.  Picture two circles, one is filled with McCord’s families and the other, with McCord’s teachers and staff; imagine how
much we can accomplish if we WORK TOGETHER!
I am extending a welcoming hand to our families to become an active part of the McCord community.  The best way to know what’s happening at school, is to be a part of the school’s culture!  There are 2 events on the calendar this month that are just for parents:  our PFC Meeting on Thursday, November 10th at 6:00 p.m. and Mingle with the Principal on Friday, November 18th at 9:30 a.m. I hope to see you soon .
