McKissick Academy of Science and Technology: 4.8.2022

April 10, 2022

We have five days of full learning before a break that everyone deserves! We had a busy, but fun week of learning this past week also! I love being able to see families in the building! It is so refreshing to see our community coming together to learn, grow, and make memories! I can't wait to see everyone this week for a solid week before Spring 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!
