MAST - Three Weeks at Sea

Despite a very active few weeks in the Atlantic, we have managed to keep our voyage out at sea and sailing along nicely.  We have had a very busy few weeks.  We received word that Mr. Tohulka has been chosen to be the first "Teacher Under the Sea" with the Aquarius Project.  He will have the opportunity to spent eight days living alongside scientists in an underwater habitat.  Mr. Tohulka will have the opportunity to link back with students at MAST through blogs, email, and live streaming video.  

The MAST Makos started off the year strong with both swimming teams and the girls' volleyball teams recording wins during the opening week of the season.  The boys' and girls' swimming teams teams defeated Sunset at the Shark Tank.  The Lady Makos lost a tough opening match to Ransom but came back to avenge the loss by defeating West Hialeah High.

On a more somber note, Mr. Stephens was reassigned and left our MAST family late last week.  We will all miss him very much but we wish him the best on his new shores.  

As a reminder, Back to School Night is quickly approaching.  Our ship will come to port for parents and families to visit on Tuesday, September 23.  Please be on the look out for more information and details in the coming week.  We hope to see all families there!
