  • Quarter 3 Message

    Greetings Hawk Family,

    We are excited this 3rd Quarter to continue pushing our students towards EXCELLENCE!

    We welcomed our students back from winter break with a mindset set on progressing academically and growing socially to BEE-come our best selves!  Have you seen your child’s data chat form and collaborative goals from Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 data chats?  How is your child progressing through his/her goals? How can we help?

    Innovative Learning Academies are taking place every Tuesday and Thursday after school.  All Hawks are invited from 2:15-4 P.M. on each of these days for extra help in math and literacy.  Saturday Academic Camp begins on February 22nd.  Let’s take advantage of all opportunities to grow and learn!

    Our School Advisory Council approved some new murals around campus and our students are buzzing with pride.  Our custodial team works tirelessly to make our campus shine and we are thankful to work and grow on such beautiful grounds.

    Please plan to join us for our monthly SAC/PTSA/SAF meetings and ensure that you follow us on Twitter @mcnicolhawks so that you can stay up to date on our year’s plans and events. 

    FSA testing is quickly approaching..attendance counts!

    With high expectations (for our staff, our students, You, and Myself),

    Melissa Gurreonero

    Can you believe we are jumping into Quarter 2 already!  Time flies when you are having fun!

     

    At McNicol Middle School we offer a wide variety of opportunities for your child to get involved! Did you know that we have a Dance Team, Debate Team, Robotics/VEX Team, First Priority Club, Coding Club, and we will soon be offering after school tutoring and academic camps! Let us help your child stay connected!  Specific details regarding all activities are shared via our school morning show, our Friday Parentlink, and on our school’s website…stay informed!

     

    ID Badges are a non-negotiable at McNicol Middle School.  Parents, we need your help in ensuring that all students are prepared each day by having their badge on and visible as they walk on to our school’s campus. Please help us by reminding your child to maintain responsibility by remembering their badge daily.

     

    Come and celebrate Family Nights with us!  Every month we plan a night filled with resources for you and your child, we even provide a full dinner at these events!  This month begins with our Math Family Night. Please join us on October 24th at 6:30 P.M. to be a part of this information and FUN!

    Welcome to McNicol Middle Magnet & STEM School! I am so excited to begin this 2019-2020 school year with you and your family. As we embrace our theme for this year to “B-EE Our Best”, I challenge YOU to define your best self! Whether you are a parent, community member, student, or staff member, you have the amazing opportunity to impact our school in a positive way! What are you willing to commit to that will be in the best interest of our team impacting your child? 

    I can guarantee you a laser focus on developing the students and adults in our building and in the community. I am committed to working and growing together in fostering responsibility, respect, safety, and accountability. This includes leading learners who are kind, understanding, and compassionate.

    In addition to enhancing our character traits, the Hawk experience focuses on meeting each child's needs and offers courses for our middle school students to grow, learn, and soar. All students engage in rigorous academic classes with hands on experiences in Science, Math, Engineering, & Technology. Our students are not only becoming high school ready and college bound, they have the opportunity begin these experiences while in our middle school!

    I encourage you to use this site as a tool to contact me, your child's teachers, and to stay informed about your child's education. I challenge you to hold our team and me accountable. I look forward to working together to meet the needs of your child.

    Follow us on Twitter @McNicolHawks and make it your priority to attend our monthly Family Nights, PTSA, & SAC Meetings.
