A message from

Principal Tammi Turner

As we enter our second year together at McKinley Elementary, I am filled with joy and anticipation for the continued progress, social and emotional growth, and academic success of our amazing students. We will continue our commitment to nurturing the whole child and creating a supportive learning environment.


“I am honored to serve as your Principal and continue our journey towards excellence. Over the past year, I have witnessed the incredible dedication and “Muskie” spirit of our staff, students, and families, which has made McKinley a truly special place. Together, we have built a strong community that celebrates diversity, fosters collaboration and embraces individuality


With 17 years of experience in education, I remain driven by the personal growth and achievements of each student. I have dedicated myself to inspiring and advocating for our young learners throughout my career. I will continue to bring my passion, enthusiasm, and expertise to further enhance the unique educational programs that McKinley offers. But above all, I am committed to listening, learning, and understanding what makes our McKinley Muskies thrive.


Building and maintaining strong relationships is at the core of my educational philosophy. I value the input and ideas of our staff, students, and families and believe that collaboration is key to our success. I encourage you to share your thoughts and aspirations for our school. As we continue to cultivate a sense of community, I will ensure that every family feels welcomed and connected. Stay tuned for upcoming family events, and remember that I am always here to listen and support you.


With Muskie Pride,

Tammi Turner
