McPhee Elementary Outreach We enjoyed a great deal of support from our graduate students for the McPhee Outreach program last year. The kids definitely enjoyed having us over and we likewise had good times providing interactive activities. McPhee Elementary is currently undergoing renovation so the SNRGSA is looking for an alternative school in order to continue our successful program. Volunteers welcome.
