Help Out Kids in Need!  McElwain Elementary students are in need of your help, Horizon! Most of these elementary kids, who are a part of our district, live in poverty. Most cannot afford their basic needs, especially their school uniforms. What are the kids in need of? Navy/White T-shirts or polo shirts, Navy/Khaki Uniform Pants, (SIZES 5-12), and gently-used or new children’s books.  There will be a bin located in the main office for all donations until Thursday, April 10, 2014. Thank you for supporting the children of Mc Elwain Elementary School.

Congratulations to the Unified Basketball team for their win over Mountain Range!
