  • McNiel administrators show their support for ALS through Ice Bucket Challenge

    The first day of school was a wet one for McNiel administrators. Principal Tania Rushing, Assistant Principals Summer Rollins and Jackie McCartney, and Counselor Jackie Wheat accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The four administrators traded their schools clothes for summer wear to get dowsed with ice water after school in front of the building. Students and teachers watched as the four braved the flowing waters.

    Dear McNiel Parents and Students:

     
    The school year is ending and summer is beginning.  Let me be the first to say, “Thank you.”  Thank you for allowing us to work with your children and be a part of their junior high experience.  For those eighth graders going on to high school, good luck to you!  Remember, work hard, be nice and do the right thing.  Life is full of choices and opportunities.  Make the right choices (you know what those are) and grab the opportunities that are before you.  We wish you nothing but the best as you begin a new chapter in your educational career and in life.
     
    For our seventh grade students who will be “king of the hill” in eighth grade next year, be ready to mentor to a fresh crop of students who will be overwhelmed when they first enter our school in the fall.  You guys were nervous once, and look at you now!!  Set a good example for those that will follow in your footsteps.  Work hard, be nice and do the right thing.
     
    Parents, your McNiel students have performed well this year, raising their STAAR scores, specifically in history and science and performed commendably again, in reading, writing and math.  Our high school Algebra I students had 100% passing on the end of course test!  We are striving to make gains on a state level, in comparison to other campuses around the state, and I believe we are well on our way!  Thank you parents for supporting your students, your teachers and McNiel Junior High School!
     
    For returning and re-enrolling students, please watch the website for messages and announcements.  We will be making some adjustments to dress code and will post those on the web-site as soon as they are approved by our campus site based team.  At McNiel, we dress for success every day and our students portray a positive image for themselves and the school.  Thank you for the overwhelming support and high expectations.
     
    For some students, I have been your principal for nine years and I am amazed and proud of the young ladies and gentlemen you have become.  For others of you, I have spent only the last one or two years, but regardless of the time, each of you holds a special place in my heart.  Thank you for adding to this special school year.
     
    Lastly, have a wonderful and safe summer.  Get lots of rest, lots of exercise and lots of family time!
     
    Sincerely,
     
     
    Tania R. Rushing, Principal
    McNiel Junior High School
