McKissick Academy of Science and Technology: 3.18.2022

March 18, 2022

What a great week of learning! We worked hard on our MAP Assessments for our 3-5th grade students and will continue to review and work on skills before the end of the year with all grade levels! We also launched our One Book One School: Rump - a fairytale based on the story Rumpelstilskin. The students are so excited and we want them to always love reading! Every student has a copy of the book, so it may be a fun way to read with the whole family!

Next week is a short week. There will be no school for students Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Wednesday is a professional learning day for teachers. We can't wait to see you back on Thursday, March 24th!


Committed to Success,

Heather Touchberry
