Principal's Message

Dear Sea Lion Families,
This week was packed full of fun family, school, and community events. We started the week off having our annual Halloween parade. It was a feel-good morning seeing our Sea Lions cheer, clap, and celebrate each other as they walked in the Halloween parade. Then on Wednesday, we held our annual McGaugh Idol. The talent and creativity were show-stopping. It was truly an amazing show! Thank you to everyone who had a hand in making it an amazing evening.

Picture make up day is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022. We will be photographing students who were absent on the original picture day, students who were dissatisfied with their original package of pictures, and students who are new to McGaugh.
**Please send the proof booklet to school for retakes**

A Peek Inside SEEK 

The Sea Lion Lab (STEM):
Candy Chemistry- Students spent time investigating reactions when they mixed halloween candy with baking soda and water to determine if it makes a physical or chemical change. I wish I had learned things like this in school. Meet the future problem solvers and researchers of the world!
