Greetings from McNabb Elementary School!

Each day we humbly boast that “We are the Best” because we truly believe we are. From the amazing, highly-qualified teachers that cover every classroom, to the outstanding, well-prepared students who walk in our halls, we truly believe we have been granted the best of the best. Our cafeteria staff and our janitors make it a point to keep our facilities beautiful and our children well-nourished. Our classified teachers work hard to support the needs of every student throughout the building. Our nurse cares for the needs of each and every child that knocks on her door.

We are a community-family school that recognizes our responsibilities extend a lot further than our four walls.  The parents and siblings of our children are a part of our lives. We want them to feel at home when they enter our building. As a KYCID Banner School, our expectations are high, but our students continue to surpass the expectations set before them. Come be a part of us and make yourself at home.

Ross Receives Dr. Samuel G. Robinson Award

(FRANKFORT, Ky.) –  At its meeting in Frankfort on October 9 the Kentucky Board of Education presented the annual Dr. Samuel Robinson Award to Gregory Ross, Ed.D., principal of McNabb Elementary in the Paducah Independent school district, and Kern Alexander, Ed.D., excellence professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and former president of Murray State University and Western Kentucky University


Ross was nominated by Julie Gargus, a teacher at McNabb Elementary, who said he embodied the best qualities of teaching.


“He is a teacher in every aspect of the word,” Gargus said. “Although he has done many things, ranging from international athletics to directing group homes, the portion of his career he has found most rewarding is being an educator.”


Since 2004, the Dr. Samuel Robinson Award has been conferred on an individual or groups in Kentucky for outstanding leadership, commitment and service in promoting equity and opportunity to learn at high levels for all Kentucky students. Robinson was a member of the Kentucky Board of Education for many years in the 1990s and 2000s.

Link: The Community is McNabb Elementary

Here is a link to an article written by Principal Greg Ross for the PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) web site titled "The Community is McNabb Elementary".

"My doctoral research was in Positive Behavior Intervention and Support," said Ross. "This initiative was created by Dr. Sugai and Dr. Horner previously from the University of Oregon. I was able to work one-on-one with Dr. Horner. In doing so, I bragged on my district, my school, and my community quite often. Finally he said for me to write an article describing it and he would put it on the National PBIS website as an exemplar for others to model. I want to thank all of you for making McNabb a great place for students to attend, parents to believe in, and for each of us to call home."
