Morning START



Morning START, a before-school program created by Mary McKinney, is offered to 4th and 5th grade students.  The success of this program is what led Mary to develop Cardboard Box.  Having been a teacher for 14 years, she made the decision to leave the classroom in search of an opportunity to provide more creative and innovative experiences for students.  She decided to begin Morning START, (Science, Technology, and ART) at the elementary school where she had been teaching.    More than 100 students registered to participate, and they arrive an hour before school, one morning each week, to take part in exciting, creative arts-integrated activities. With an extensive waiting list of students, Mary was inspired to take this program beyond the walls of the school and provide a similar concept to the greater Raleigh area.
