When is Picture Day?

Dear McNiel Parents and Students:

   The year has gotten off to a fantastic start!  Our campus is a buzz with activity and exciting events and we hope that you will be able to participate in as many things as possible with your student.  We understand that often our students do not make it home with paper copies of information, but we want to remind parents that our school website is a wealth of information and current events and our Parent Link information system continually sends messages to parents, but only if we have current phone numbers in our system.  If you have recently had a phone number or address change, be sure to contact the school office so that we may update our computer system.
   Our football season is in full swing and Homecoming Week is October 20th – 24th.  We will have different dress up themes during that week and a dance on Friday, October 24th.  Please remember that students should be picked up promptly from any dance or function  and parents are always welcome to attend.  Our first dance was a huge success and we hope for a repeat performance on the 24th of October. 
   The beginning of school is an overwhelming time for students AND teachers, but I think the kinks have been worked out and our school days have run extremely well.  The new dress code is serving its purpose and we have very few dress code issues.  Students have been respectful and accepting when asked to adjust and we couldn’t ask for a better response.  The one direction crowded halls have helped immensely with the traffic flow and it appears everyone is mastering the dreaded combination lock! 
   We welcome parents to eat lunch with their students, but please remember that Texas Department of Agriculture guidelines restrict food items brought to anyone but your own student.  Also, when issues arise, please contact your student’s teacher first.  We want junior high to be a fun and memorable time for our students and for our parents.  We are in this together and we appreciate your input.
   Thursday, September 25th is McNiel’s Meet the Teacher.  We invite you to come by from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm to visit with your student’s teacher and put the names and faces together that your child talks about on a daily basis.  Hope to see you tomorrow or at an upcoming event.

Thank you for all you do.

Tania R. Rushing, Principal
