Welcome to McAuliffe International School! 

 

BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT RESCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER 3RD

Back-to-School Night has been rescheduled for Wednesday, September 3rd at 6:30PM. The previously scheduled event on August 21st was interrupted and moved to this new date due to an exhaust fan overheating in the band room. Fortunately, no one was hurt and there was no damage to any of our classrooms or equipment. Thank you for your patience and we’ll see you on Wednesday, September 3rd!
