In conjunction with National Night Out, McKinney ISD Superintendent Dr. J.D. Kennedy, school board members and a host of McKinney ISD administrators took to the streets Tuesday morning from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. for McKinney ISD Connects, a community walk aimed at meeting MISD parents and students in the neighborhoods where they live.
District representatives traveled door to door greeting parents and distributing information about registration, back to school events, the upcoming Learning Fair Expo and helpful campus contact information.
The experience was a positive one. “My staff and the administration that came to Caldwell had a blast today,” Caldwell Elementary Principal Chris Clark said. “I love this idea. We want to try and visit every family next year! Our teachers wanted to keep going after 11 a.m.”
Dr. Kennedy was also pleased with the success of the event. “This is our first year to do a community walk before the start of school, and I must say it was a tremendous success,” he said. “We got a positive response from those homes that we visited. Whether they had children or not, they appreciated us taking the time and interest to go out and provide registration information and answer other questions that people might have before the start of school.”
