Principal's Message

Ms. Rodriguez Pic cmm

Dear Parents, 

I am very humbled to be your new school principal. My name is Erika B. Rodriguez and I am beyond excited to start a new school year! I graduated from Cigarroa High School in 1995 and obtained my bachelor and masters degree from TAMIU. Previously I have served as an assistant principal at Gallego and Ligarde Elementary. This is my 21st  year serving as a public educator. I want you to know that my sole mission is to do what is best for all our students. I want to thank you for entrusting your children to our C.M. Macdonell family. Please know that the three main focus areas will be: academic growth, attendance, and family involvement. Look for our monthly calendars, follow us on Twitter @macdonellHawks and like us on Facebook to see the latest events. Our school is on the right track for ensuring students learn in a safe environment!

Some changes this school year:

  • Birthday Cakes may be brought in only on the last Friday of each month (the last 30 minutes of the day). 
  • The last Friday of the Month is reserved for birthday parties. Only store-bought cupcakes and juices are allowed. No parents allowed in the classroom. 
  • Student of the Month Ceremony will be held the last Thursday of every month at 5:30 p.m. You will receive a personal invitation if your child is selected. (August & September will be combined on Sept.)
  • No early release Monday-Thursday after 3:00 pm and Friday after 2:45 pm.
  • Our Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (P.B.I.S.) Plan is called:  P.R.I.D.E.-(Productive, Respectful, Integrity, Discipline, and Effort) This is a plan to create a more positive school climate. More details forthcoming.

Few Reminders: 

  • Bring an ID to enter campus when you are visiting.
