New School Improvements

Posted on September 16, 2016 at 9:25 PM

Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the PTA, McClellan Elementary now has a TV in our front lobby. This new equipment will allow the school to easily display important news and information in a high-traffic area. In addition to the TV, blinds were installed in the gymnasium that will be helpful during presentations and assemblies. The blinds will aid in keeping sunglare to a minimum and increase the visibility of multimedia and videos. The PTA has also secured the funds for a filtered water fountain. Soon to be installed, the new fountain is designed to better accommodate the filling of water bottles and cups.
