CKM PTSA Challenge Grant


It’s not too late to join the C.K. McClatchy PTSA! Already a member for the 2020-2021 school year? Please donate an additional gift! An anonymous member has put up a $1,000 challenge grant to the CKM PTSA. Every dollar donated to the PTSA above the membership fee will be matched dollar for dollar–but only if there are enough donations to meet the $1,000 challenge. We have until October 31 to reach this goal, otherwise we may need to return this grant. Please donate at the CKM PTSA Information Page

An Introduction to Our New Principal


Dear C.K. McClatchy Families,

What a pleasure it is to have joined your community! I’ve spent my last six years as the Principal at California Middle School, on just the other side of the fence from McClatchy, working in your neighborhood and learning about the unique needs of our students. I am beyond thrilled to be leading McClatchy through its next phase – my goal for our school is simple, to improve academic opportunities and experiences for students, and to transform the campus culture to be dramatically more inclusive. Now, more than ever, schools are faced with addressing racial disparities with intense urgency, and McClatchy is no exception. Understanding the social landscape at McClatchy will be central to my study of the school. Achieving a vision of improved academic opportunities and strengthened campus culture will take some time, and I am committed to hearing the voices of students, staff, and parents as I begin to formulate improvement plans to move toward this vision.
