McKissick Academy of Science and Technology: 2.14.2022

Week of February 14, 2022

It was a busy 5 day week this past week! You will see below many of the activities our Sharks were able to participate in throughout the week. Our district is lifting a few more protocols this week including lunch with students and field trips opening up. We are also VERY excited about one of our most popular Title I events: Sweetheart Dance that we are able to have this Thursday 2/17. Of course, your shark's sweetheart is you or a loved one. This Title I sponsored event is to celebrate family, love, and communication between families. We will have a guest speaker during your dinner time to discuss the balance of family, school, work, and how all of that functions together. Please send in your RSVP if you haven't, so that we are able to accommodate plenty of food. We look forward to spending time with your families!

Finally, Friday, February 18 and Monday, February 21 are holidays for students and teachers for President's Day. We will have a busy 4 day week this week!


Committed to Success,

Heather Touchberry

The School District of Pickens County will begin sending out magnet information and applications for next school year. However, this is only for "new" magnet students that are not currently here and enrolled at McKissick. There is no need to apply again once accepted. However, in the spring we will send out confirmation forms for our current students. We are so thankful for you! All Applications are due February 17th
