Welcome to McCormick!

Dear All,


Welcome to the new Cyrus H. McCormick Elementary School website.  


We are proud to present this website to help increase communication with parents and members of our community.  In this website we hope to keep you informed on current events, programs and procedures that are of interest to you as families of our students and the general community.


 McCormick School strives to provide the best academic program supplemented by enrichment after school classes which serve to create a foundation and structure for future success. We aim to build a culture of character and success by teaching students social emotional skills so that they are well prepared for their middle and high schools, their university and career years.


We are honored to have three main active parent committees, the Local School Council (LSC), NCLB Title I Parent Advisory Council (PAC) and the Bilingual Parent Advisory Council (BAC) who support our teachers and the school’s efforts. 


McCormick serves 823 students from preschool age through 5th grade in 3 detached buildings in the heart of the Little Village Community (La Villita). We have made upward trends in reading and math, but know that we still can do better, which is why we believe that “Si Se Puede, Yes, We Can”. Our mascot is the wolf which was selected by our students because we believe they have a voice. It represents our school well with its characteristics of “loyalty, perseverance and success”.  We believe that if students are loyal to themselves, their families and their community, persevere in all that they do, they will be successful in life. 


Thank you for inviting us into your homes.  If we can be of service to you or if you are willing to partner with us, please contact us.


Sincerely, 
Flavia Hernandez
Principal


Estimados Padres de Familia y Comunidad,


Bienvenidos a la nueva página de la Escuela Cyrus H. McCormick.


Estamos orgullosos de presentar esta página para ayudar a aumentar la comunicación con los padres y miembros de nuestra comunidad. En esta página intentaremos mantenerlos informados sobre los acontecimientos de actualidad, programas y procedimientos que son de interés para usted, como las familias de nuestros estudiantes y la comunidad en general.

 

La Escuela McCormick se esfuerza por ofrecer el mejor programa académico complementado por enriquecimiento después de clases que sirven para crear una fundación y una estructura para el éxito futuro.  Atravez de enseñar a nuestros alumnos habilidades emocionales y sociales intentamos construir una cultura de carácter positivo y éxito para que ellos estén bien preparados para sus años en la secundaria y preparatoria, su universidad y años de carrera.


Nos sentimos orgullosos de tener tres comités activos principales, el Consejo Local de la Escuela (LSC), Comité Consejero de Padres NCLB Título I (PAC) y el Consejo de Padres Bilingües Asesores (BAC) que apoyan los esfuerzos de la escuela y los maestros.


McCormick sirve 823 estudiantes de edad preescolar a través de 5º grado en 3 edificios separados en el corazón de la comunidad La Villita. Nos han hecho las tendencias al alza en lectura y matemáticas, pero sabemos que aún podemos hacerlo mejor, razón por la cual creemos que "Sí Se Puede, sí, podemos". Nuestra mascota es el lobo que fue seleccionado por nuestros alumnos ya que consideramos que ellos tienen una voz. Representa nuestra escuela bien con sus características de "lealtad, perseverancia y éxito". Creemos que si los alumnos son leales a sí mismos, sus familias y su comunidad, perseverán en todo lo que hagan, ellos tendrán éxito en la vida.


Gracias por invitarnos a sus casas. Si podemos servirles en algo o si usted está dispuesto a colaborar con nosotros, favor de ponerse en contacto con nosotros.


Sinceramente, 
Flavia Hernández
Director

The mission of McCormick Elementary is to ensure all students receive a high quality education through a supportive learning environment and a rigorous curriculum. We strive to empower our parents, teachers, and community to be actively involved as our students become responsible lifelong learners and productive members of society.

Vision:

The McCormick School Community will foster the development of responsible, dedicated and goal-oriented students so that each will become self-motivated and college and career ready.  In order to do this, social and emotional learning will be integrated within the core instruction as taught and modeled by the school community.
