EVERY MOMENT MATTERS

The best part of education is that it matters.  The hardest part of education is that every moment matters, every day. (Adapted from Dr. Todd Whitaker)

Welcome to McDonald Elementary School, where EVERY MOMENT MATTERS.  At McDonald Elementary, we focus on fostering a culture of joy and scholarship.  Throughout the course of our day, we remove barriers, inspire the future, create leaders, and discover the world around us.  At McDonald Elementary, we are learning to change the world.
