Principal’s Message

Principal, Shannon Bancroft

Hello McKinley Tigers!

My name is Shannon Bancroft and I am honored to be the Principal of McKinley Elementary School. The 2020-2021 school year will be my 22nd year in education. I began my career as a substitute teacher and then taught High School English for 10 years.  I served as Assistant Principal at West High School for 7 years and at George Kelly School for 1 year before joining the McKinley Family this year.  When I am not at work, my husband and I enjoying traveling and camping with our three children and love watching them participate in their sports and activities.

As your principal, it is my pleasure to work with our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students. We are committed to ensuring that your children receive the best support to learn and grow. Our goal is to provide a supportive learning environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school aids students in their success. We encourage parents to communicate with teachers and staff to foster a successful partnership.

We are excited for the opportunity to work with you and your student to provide a safe and welcoming learning environment.  I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year.
