Upcoming Events

Election Day Bake Sale

Get ready for the Election Day (Primary) bake sale on

Tuesday, May 20 at McCall School (no school that day). We need volunteers to man the table for a one-hour shift (parents with kids encouraged) and to bake the goodies (individually wrapped).

Email horowitz.sharri@gmail.com to reserve your shift.


Our McCall Green Team has accomplished so much this year already and as we help the McCall Science Department plan for the annual STEAM event, we are in need of parent help and expertise. The event this year, McCall STEAMFEST, will consist of the STEAM Night activities, but also green activities during the day with classrooms and students participating in the school-wide event, circulating through different events highlighting our efforts around the RecycleBank grant.

We need volunteers on May 22 and to help the kids get their projects up and running. We meet on Wednesdays at 3:15 PM if anyone can come and help with the students during Green Team.

Please email the McCall Green Team to volunteer or to join our mailing list.


No school on Tuesday, May 20.
