Learn about our many activities

McNair Upper Elementary School offers many activities during school and after school for the enjoyment, growth, and enrichment of our students. Music activities offered by the school include are band, strings, and chorus. Additional activities include:

  • Safety Patrols - Safety patrols play a vital role in daily life at McNair, helping to keep the school a safer place for everyone.  Fifth and 6th-grade students are selected as safety patrols and are assigned to positions within and outside of the school building, on school buses, and at school crossings.  They also assist kindergartners to and from class each day, raise and lower the flags, and make the afternoon announcements.

  • Student Council Association (SCA) - The SCA is McNair's student government body, consisting of five officers and two representatives from each class in grades 3-6. The SCA is a leadership and service organization that conducts service projects and promotes school spirit. The SCA meets regularly to plan and work on these projects. SCA students are selected through an election process.
