Help support your grade-level team in McKinley's first ever adult only improv comedy night called "The Spelling Bee".

We've partnered with the producer of the Tony Award Winning musical "The Putnum County Spelling Bee" to help raise funds for our Annual Fund. The Annual Fund supports all grade level arts education at McKinley.

This event will be February 4th in the evening at Farnsworth Park in Altadena.  You must purchase a ticket for entry ($10 from your teacher).  

How do I support my grade's team? Help them buy "cheats" or "life savers" to use during the spelling bee! The improv comedians (aka judges) do not make this easy, so your grades speller might need some help! The only way they can buy these "cheats" is if their grade has raised money to do so.

Each grade is trying to raise $4000 worth of cheats! Want to see what we're talking about ... visit to watch their quick video
