We had an eventful week with our 2nd graders testing all week for the COGAT and IOWA. They worked extremely hard so we are very proud of them! We also had a "celebratory" Friday with our Honor Roll Call and 1st Shark SWAG party! The students could save their 10 SWAG pieces and turn them in to play Shark Games outside. The neat thing about this initiative is some students wanted to collect and save their SWAG for the collection or the larger events in the year which is totally fine too! We hope that this SWAG (Students with Academic Goals) teaches them responsibility and management.
I also wanted to announce to our MAST family that we received our SC School Report Card rating this week. We are proud to announce that we are GOOD which means our school performance exceeds the criteria to ensure all students meet the Profile of the SC Graduate . This hard work is due to the students, teachers, staff, and parents for their perseverance through some of the hardest times in school! After diving deeper, we also went up 5 points from our last report card in 2019 before the COVID closure! This is a testament from our students, teachers, and families to ensure that all students will grow while they are in school! Thank you for your continued partnership to see all students succeed at MAST!
Committed to Success,
Next Week is RED RIBBON WEEK!
