A Message from Dr. Mays - Winter, 2019

Well the first semester is behind us and now we turn our focus to the furious second semester.  The Spring semester here at Mount is always packed with tons of extra-curricular activities and as always, STAAR testing.  Our students have already settled back into the groove of their academic schedules and we are pushing to make the Spring semester as successful as the first semester.  

Our academics programs are flourishing here at Mount.  Our partnership with SFA continues to grow as we have more and more students taking Dual Credit Courses than ever before.  Our AP classes continue to grow and we are looking forward to those student performing well on the AP exams. We are growing our HS UIL Academics programs and our JH UIL Academics performed extremely well in their competition in December.  This is all due to the fantastic staff, students, and community that make all of this possible here at Mount, what a wonderful place!

Basketball season is entering district play and we are looking forward to competing for playoff spots for both the girls and boys.  One Act Play season is beginning and we are confident we will be very competitive once again, making it to the UIL State competition the last two years.  Band is preparing for their Spring UIL Solo and Ensemble contest. Our FFA program is growing exponentially and has already had tremendous success which we look to continue in the Rusk Youth Livestock and Project Show.  Our Twirlers will look to continue their string of State qualifications as well this Spring. These are just a few of our extraordinary extra-curricular activities that are currently going on here at Mount, I’ll be honest in stating that I have probably forgotten a few.

It has been a fantastic year at Mount thus far, but we are far from finished.  As always, we would love to hear from you with any advice, concerns, or praise (our favorite!) for our efforts towards educating the students here at Mt. Enterprise JH/HS.  

Thanks, and Go Cats!!!
