The Living Classroom Project
The prize money from the WTOP contest will fund a Living Classroom for McLean students.  The Living Classroom will be a peaceful, outdoor oasis where students can enjoy the calming benefits of a natural setting. It will integrate principles of environmental sustainability, outdoor learning, and science by giving our students first-hand experience with these concepts in their outdoor classroom.


School Security Camera Fundraising Campaign:  DONATE TODAY

The PTSA needs your immediate attention to help address security risks at our school. Officer Davis, along with Buddy Sekely and his team of security professionals, do a magnificent job keeping our students safe, but outdated technology has impeded their ability.  McLean High School’s security cameras are at least 20 years old, so they are being replaced with high-tech, state of the art cameras positioned around the perimeter of the school and other campus locations. But these cameras need proper computer data storage support to be efficient.  Therefore, the PTSA is launching a Security Camera Campaign to raise $20,000 for this important upgrade.  It is imperative that we raise the level of security not only during the school day, but also in the evenings. Principal Reilly addressed our security issues and the need for this new technology at the most recent PTSA meeting.

Please help us raise the needed funds by clicking on this easy paypal link.

All tax deductible donations collected for March/April will go directly to the Security Camera Campaign.  Your contribution to this cause is greatly appreciated!
