A Message from Dr. Mays - Winter/Spring, 2018

This time of year is when things really ramp up here at Mount Enterprise.  We have more extra-curricular activities than can be counted while simultaneously having to academically prepare for STAAR and EOC testing that is quickly approaching.  Despite this busy time, for parents of students I welcome you to stop by and see how things are going. Also we would like to encourage you to contact your child's teachers and check on their progress.  Many times teachers can offer information that is extremely useful for parents.  One of the most important aims of our school is to build that relationship between our school and the homes of our students.  If you have suggestions, praise, or even concerns, we would love to hear them.

Basketball season is winding down, but that transitions right into baseball, softball, and track for most of our student athletes.  Our power lifters are in the midst of their season and are hoping for some success continuing in Regionals and beyond.  Our students in Ag and FFA are gearing up for the Rusk County show and  Band is gearing up for their spring competition, and we all know that our Band program will represent Mount Enterprise in an extremely praiseworthy fashion.  Not for a matter of importance, but lastly, our One Act Play is entering into competition with expectations for another lengthy run, with aspirations of another State competition performance.

Wildcat Nation never slows down!  Make sure you take every opportunity to support our students as they make every effort to represent the school and community in extremely dignified ways!  Go Cats!
