  • Hello Hawk Family, 

    Welcome to our Hawk Family!  Whether we are soon to see each other in person or through our new devices I am eager to reconnect with each of you.  Hawk Life is most definitely the best life!  As we begin this new school year, our staff is ready to REFLECT, REIMAGINE, AND RECHARGE as we become Game Changers in education. 

    This 2020-2021 school year Hawks will become true owners of their individual learning process.  As a recipient of the Verizon Innovative Learning Schools Grant, McNicol Middle School students are equipped with brand new 32GB iPads (with an unlimited data plan) to guide their learning. Together we will join teachers, community members, and distant partners on a journey this school year which will be filled with exploration, innovation, and research as we grow within not only core curriculum and fundamental skills, but we will dive deep into the journey of becoming high school ready and college bound scholars. 

    I encourage our parents to partner with us this school year as we continue to develop our E-Learning skills and empower our students with accountability as they work towards meeting their goals.  Together we can create an experience for our children that they can be proud of and that will impact their success not just today but for tomorrow. 

    Join us on the third Thursday of each month for our PTSA, SAF, and SAC Meetings which begin at 6 P.M. sharp.  Use your voice to help us improve our practices and continue to hold us accountable.  Our staff email addresses can be easily found on this website, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. 

    Email me at any time: Melissa.gurreonero@browardschools.com with any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions and follow me on Twitter @mcnicolhawks to see up to date information.  Stay tuned for weekly Parentlink messages which come to your phone on every Friday evening at 6:00 P.M. It is during these messages that I recap our week and share important information to prepare you for the next week.

    My promise to you is to teach and create experiences for you and your child through our 4 B’s: “Being” Responsible, “Being” Respectful, “Being” Active Learners, and “Being” a part of a SAFE environment!  Let’s do this together!

    Your Extremely Proud Principal,

    Melissa Gurreonero
