Principal's Message


May PostmaIt is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Patrick McGaheran School website!

I am honored to serve as the Principal of Patrick McGaheran School. PMG provides a positive, safe, caring environment where all of our second and third grade students are challenged as they learn and grow. All members of our school community are committed to helping students thrive socially, emotionally, academically and physically.

Our students are provided with a program of study that includes balanced literacy with an emphasis on reading and writing skills, mathematics using real-life applications, manipulatives and the development of problem solving skills, next-generation science instruction and a social studies curriculum focused on communities. Differentiation of instruction is used to tailor learning to the needs of individual students.

The Responsive Classroom approach is utilized to help build our classroom communities. Our school-wide theme is, “Where Friendships Grow,” and our three school rules are, “Take Care of Yourself, Others and our Environment.” We have an amazing student body of respectful, motivated and enthusiastic learners.

I hope that you are able to take some time to explore our website. If you have any questions that you can not find addressed through your search, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.


Mary Postma, Principal
