ATTENTION ASTRO FAMILY!!!
Please take a moment to read an important message from our Principal,
Mr. Luqman Abdur-Rahman
Dear McNair Astro Community,
I am thrilled to be the principal of McNair MS for the 2014-2015 school year. We have big plans for our school this year, but we know our imminent success depends heavily on our ability to successfully secure the support of our parents, business partners, and community stakeholders. With that in mind, we hope that our vision of "Preparing for Liftoff" will resonate with each of you, and our collective effort will lead to the success of all of our students.
We live in a fast-paced, technology driven world. We have students that are tech savvy and easily bored by conventional methods of education. Thus, if we want to reach them effectively, we must meet them where they are. Because of this, our staff has committed to finding innovative ways to engage our students in the learning process and provide them with the support they need to become their best selves.
Next year, we are honored to be moving into a state of the art building that will be the first of its kind in our district. It will utilize the newest and most advanced instructional tools to ignite our students' interests and facilitate professional learning and collaborative planning amongst our staff. It will usher us into a new era of high academic performance. However, we must prepare for this transition by improving our school climate and perfecting our methods of instruction now.
Please feel free to help us prepare for liftoff throughout this very exciting year. We pledge to uphold our core values of discipline, urgency, valor, and innovation to make McNair the center of community vitalization and a school that our students, teachers and parents are proud of. We cannot wait to meet you and join you in this exciting work!
