    McGaughey Elementary School

    Welcome to McGaughey Elementary!! McGaughey Elementary is our District's preschool, kindergarten, and first grade attendance center. This arrangement allows us to focus on this age group and to provide more consistency across the grade levels.  McGaughey staff strive for a nurturing, family friendly environment with academic excellence for all students.

    McGaughey is a PBIS school, and we follow the motto of "Be the Best you can be!" All students will be encouraged to follow the 3 R's: Be Ready, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful. Students will be taught the 3 R's across all settings of the school. We have many special events and incentives planned for the students and staff as we celebrate our success in achieving the 3 R's! In addition, we teach the 7 Habits of Happy Kids in an effort to help all students reach their full potential! 

    We are looking forward to a great school year!!  I would like to invite you to visit us at anytime. If I can be of assistance, please contact me at or at 217-864-2711.
