McKissick Academy of Science and Technology: 4.15.2022

April 15, 2022

Happy Friday! We had a great week with our Sharks and a great Friday incorporating academic skills into engaging activities with egg hunts and the nature trail. Next week is Spring Break and I hope everyone has a wonderful break! We can't wait to see you on April 25th. I will be traveling to Nevada to receive our National Magnet School of America Excellence Award. I can't wait to share photos and experiences with you when I return! Have a wonderful break!

Committed to Success,

Heather Touchberry

MAST Clothes Closet

We are in need of clothes in our clothes closet. We use this closet to help our students in need for various reasons. If you have any gently used clothing, please consider donating to us! We are desperately in need of boys and girls clothes between the ages of 6-10.


As the year closes and testing season begins, headphones for each student in grades K-1 is vital. Please make sure your child has a pair to use in the classroom. The $5 ones at Five Below work great!

Greenville Drive All-Star Readers

Mark your calendars: The Greenville Drive All-Star Readers game will be Sunday, April 24 (the last day of Spring Break). Ticket vouchers will be delivered sometime in the next week or two for those students who completed the reading challenge. We had a total of 75 students who completed their reading forms! More details will be coming later about how to redeem your vouchers and how to get to the game!
