Happy Friday, Shark Families!


We have 4 and 1/2 days next week! Friday, December 17th is a half day and we will dismiss at 11:10. We are reviewing and celebrating a whole 1st semester so we would love to see our students everyday next week! Thank you for all that you have done to make this 1st half of our year successful so far! Have a wonderful week-end and we can't wait to see everyone in their PJs on Monday!


Committed to Succes,

Magnet School Email and Applications

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!

Lunch with your student

The district is now allowing parents to eat with their students for lunch! If you would like to eat lunch with your student, please send an email or Schoology message to the teacher. We can only allow one parent per class due to limited spacing in the lunch room. We are excited to welcome parents back in the building!
