This website is dedicated to the Francis M. McKay
Elementary School (Chicago) classmates of the 1970's.

It was a much smaller school back then, and a different era.
Those of us who experienced that era have many fond
memories. So take a trip back in time.... and while you're visiting,
please be sure to sign the book and let everyone know
you were here!

"Graduation Day" (Song)


It's a time for joy, a time for tears,
A time we'll treasure through the years.
We'll remember always, Graduation Day.

It's been fun to learn our lessons here,
But we must go our separate ways...
We'll remember always, Graduation Day.

Though we leave in sorrow all the joys we've known
We can face tomorrow knowing we'll never walk alone.

So goodbye, McKay. We're on our way
You've taught us all we know today.
We'll remember always, Graduation Day.
We'll remember always....Graduation Day.
