Fins Up Newsletter

McKissick Academy of Science and Technology

September 17, 2022

Happy Saturday Morning!

We had so much excitement yesterday that I did not have a chance to send our newsletter for next week! That is a great challenge to have, though! We celebrated our very own, Ms. Martin as she won SDPC District Teacher of the year! This is out of 25 other schools! This is also the very first teacher from McKissick to have ever won! What an amazing honor!

Yesterday was also special because our entire school raise around $10,000 for our students to go on overnight field trips! The first MAST Color Run was a wonderful success, thanks to Mrs. Phillips! We can't wait to continue with this fundraiser in the future years as well to help our students directly!

Next week, is also a full week! If you have little sharks (called pups), we will have a special story time with them on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 10:45 am. We would love to have you!

Thank you for all of your support!

Committed to Success,

Heather Touchberry
