Principal's Welcome Page


    Welcome to the John E. McCarthy Memorial School!

    I would like to take a moment to explain the website design so that it is as user-friendly as possible. Across the top of the website and above the picture of the McCarthy School you will find links that will be updated frequently throughout the year. 

    Monthly Calendar: Please check here for important dates, such as: early dismissal days, school events, afterschool activities, issuance of progress reports and report cards, testing dates, etc.

    Home Page: Please check here regularly for updates on events, announcements, and materials sent home throughout the week. We hope this page will help to keep parents informed of the happenings at school and important announcements on a frequent basis.

    School Menu: An on-line version of the school menu which is sent home at the beginning of the month listing daily lunch choices for main menu and alternate menu items.

    Parents: The PTO page lists the link to the PTO web page.  The web page has the mission of the PTO, examples of how the PTO supports the school through funding for materials and events, and contact information for members of the PTO executive board. On a monthly basis, the PTO newsletter and notes from the monthly meetings will be posted.

    Administration-School Council: The school council page defines the mission of the school council, lists annual school improvement plan goals and identifies parent, teacher, and community representatives that comprise the council. On a monthly basis, the school council agenda and notes from monthly meetings will be posted. On this page you may also find a link to the current School Improvement Plan.

    Please browse our website often to keep current about our school. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns.


    Very Truly Yours,

    Ray Smoyer
