Fins Up Newsletter

McKissick Academy of Science and Technology

August 5, 2022

Wow! What a "fintastic" first week of school! It was wonderful to see students in classes and start those procedures and routines while also making new friends! We are a family here at MAST and I feel like all of our family is finally home!

In this newsletter, there is a lot of information and dates to save. We are not wasting any time before #divingdeeper into family events and also field trips! We know that partnering with you is the most important! Teacher newsletters for classes will also begin next week. So if you don't hear from your teacher or receive a newsletter for your shark's class, please let us know! Have a wonderful weekend!


Committed to Success,

Heather Touchberry
