Everyday at MST, our students and staff start the day off with our MST Pledge. Last year, some of our students had the great idea to turn the pledge into a song. Mrs. Archibald, the school counselor, oversaw the project and enlisted the talents of Jacob Cline, Aiden Webb, and Kristen McDaniel. These students worked with Mrs. Archibald, Mrs. Tunstall, and Miss Wells to help create the song they wanted. They made something incredible together and we are very excited to share it with you.

Able Robbins was our first MST office helper of the school year and he did an amazing job. Let's also wish him a big Happy Birthday!

K- 2 students will be picked up in the FRONT of the school and you should have a GREEN car rider sign to hang in your car window. (Please see our Dismissal Map included with this post). 3-6 students will be picked up at the west end of the school (by the greenhouse) and you should have a BLUE car rider sign to hang in your car window. There are NO LEFT TURNS off the service road into dismissal area allowed during dismissal. You have to make a right hand turn into our west end dismissal area.

One of the final units of the year for MST 6th-graders was about the different human body systems. Students made models of the different systems, incorporating technology in their creations.
These amazing 6th graders stuck it out to their final day at MST. They all got to lead the pledge! Thank you, 6th graders, for being absolutely amazing! We can’t wait to see where you go from here.
Today, celebrated the end of school and the start of summer. We said farewell to Mr Cooley and Mrs Whittington and several others. Thank you for all you have invested into our students and staff. MST will miss you all!!
MST STEM Scholarship MST Librarian, Misty Burt, always designates a charity or philanthropy to corollate with our Book Fair themes and our Magnet theme "Creating the Future". Our campus does coin drives and other events to raise money for the chosen cause. MST students, faculty and staff never disappoint when it comes to their generosity and care for others. This year Ms. Burt chose to do a STEM scholarship for a lucky MHS student. Campus efforts collected $1800.00, so it was decided to honor 3 graduates, $600 each, who plan to further their education in a STEM related field. Congratulations to: Sarah Elizabeth Hood-University of Memphis, Biomedical Engineering Brett Allen McCain-Christian Brothers University, Biology and Lillian Grace Kemp-University of Arkansas, Pre-Med. MST is so excited to be a part of your journey!
