Dear McCord parents and students,
Welcome to the 16/17 school year! Every year we see new faces at McCord. We welcome our new and returning students to McCord School, home of the Mustangs! At McCord, in unity with our parents, we help each student grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
We are looking forward to another successful year in our continued efforts to effectively implementing the Common Core Standards. Teachers continue to receive professional development to increase their knowledge and skills in the effective delivery of Common Core Standards. McCord is invested in making sure all students are successful!
Our expectations for students remain high. In order to accomplish great things, it is crucial to maintain excellent communication between McCord staff, parents, and students. Our expectation is that McCord students will bravely commit to learning and becoming the best person they can be.
Regular daily attendance for each student is extremely important as parents’ attendance at school-sponsored events. Continued parent assistance and support provides a nurturing environment where students experience the best education possible. Parent participation has increasingly improved over the years. Newsletters, notes and our School Messenger (automated phone service) are the primary source of communicating events. Our students and staff are delighted to have your support and participation. Prior to volunteering, a mandatory training and application form must be completed. We welcome you to McCord!
Student behavior and school culture continues to improve at McCord as a result of PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports). For the third year in a row, McCord received a GOLD award from Fresno County Office of Education for our outstanding implementation and positive results. It is with parent, student, staff, and community support that we are able to effectively implement PBIS. Our expectation is that students continue to show HEART in the community.
Our school motto is “McCord has HEART!” McCord students and staff have HEART!
H as a good attitude
E nsures everyone is safe
A bove and beyond
T reats others with respect
