    Hello Hawk Family, 

    This school year has certainly offered some new opportunities for our students, staff and community!  Whether you are learning to navigate your child’s Canvas courses, trouble shooting TEAMS links, or dialing in to our technical center for log on assistance, we have all definitely learned the need to embrace this virtual reality!  I cannot begin to tell you how proud I am of our students.  As I watch my own child struggle with the frustration of Wi-Fi speed, laptop issues and navigating courses I know that the struggle is real!  It is real for our students, staff and parents alike, but the important part of this experience is that we continue to work as a team!

    I have charged our team with becoming Game Changers this school year and I can guarantee you that they have accepted the challenge.  Teachers have been dedicated to extended trainings and professional development opportunities all in the best interest of our students.  But I need your help parents!  Please ensure that your child has embraced our 4 B’S of E-Learning and that they are held accountable for their learning.  We can do this together and we have some ideas to help!  I encourage you to join us each and every Wednesday from 11 A.M.-1 P.M. in our Virtual Parent University courses!  You don’t have to stay the whole time;  just log in, introduce yourself to our counseling team and come prepared with any questions that we can help answer!  We have tools you can use such as: online engagement strategies, community resource information, mindfulness in parenting, communication tips to talk with your child, and so much more!   The link can be found on the main page of our website and we are eager to engage!

    As you know McNicol Middle School is a Verizon Innovation School.  This means that all of our students will be assigned a brand new iPad which comes with data for online learning.  We will be rolling out these devices at the end of this month so stay tuned for important information regarding these plans.  We are excited to take this e-learning experience to the next level.

    Remember meals are served every Tuesday and Thursday at our school!  Ensure that you have completed your free and reduced lunch forms request and visit us during the hours of 11-1 or 3-5 on either or both dates to pick up boxed meals.

    I wish you a successful month and I cannot wait to see our kiddies shine in their virtual classrooms!

     

    Your Extremely Proud Principal,

    Melissa Gurreonero
