hawaiian_clipart_tshirt.gifLearning to dress appropriately for school, for work, or for varying weather conditions is an important skill to pass along to our kids.  So here is some information about McAuliffe and our school dress policies to share with your children!
1) McAuliffe Elementary is a uniform school!  We require beige khakis, shorts, skirts, or jumpers on the bottom and black, white, navy, or light blue collared shirts on top!  If you need help with getting your kids uniform clothes, come see the front office, we have many families who donate extra uniforms to us each year! 
2) Check our Lost and Found for missing items!  Few things are as frustrating for parents as buying your kids a nice warm coat, a hat, or gloves and having your kids lose them at school.  Often, these missing items end up in our Lost and Found and unfortunately, many of them never get reclaimed! 
3) McAuliffe also has a "no hat" policy in the building.  Often, our students want to wear their new cap to school and we encourage that!  We want students to show off their new clothes!  But when they enter the school to go to class, we find hats to be distracting and not conducive to a positive learning enviornment.  So students are asked to keep hats in their backpack until recess or the end of the day! 
Calling all Volunteers!

Would you like to volunteer at McAuliffe Elementary this school year?  We are always in need of volunteers to help out in our classrooms, in the library, on field trips, and for other events throughout the school year.  District 11 policy requires all volunteers to complete a Volunteer Registration Form.  Click here to begin your Volunteer Registration.

 All registration forms must be printed and brought into the McAuliffe office, along with a picture ID, to complete the volunteer registration process.  If you do not have access to a computer and/or printer, you may complete your volunteer registration form at McAuliffe.
If you have previously completed a Volunteer Registration form, there is no need to complete another one.  The office can check to see if you are still a registered volunteer.  If you have questions regarding the volunteer registration process or volunteer opportunities at McAuliffe, please call the office at 228-0900.
School Uniforms:
All students are expected to adhere to uniform policy at all times. Uniforms consist of beige khaki pants, shorts, or school appropriate skirts (no navy blue) along with a black, white, navy, or light blue shirt with a collar and no logo. There is no required brand for any part of the uniform. Special days will be designated as non-uniform days (picture day, pajama day, Halloween, etc.). On colder days, turtlenecks and sweaters that adhere to uniform colors are allowed.
For uniform assistance contact  the office at 719-228-0900
Car Pool:
Do you need help getting your children to and from school?  The Colorado Springs Transit Service provides the Metro Rides' School pool Program.  It is a free matching service to help parents find local car pools to aid in getting their kids to and from school.
