A Message from Dr. Mays - Fall, 2022

Greetings WILDCAT NATION!  This is such an exciting time to be a Wildcat.  Our school district is thriving in so many ways.  We are soon to break ground on our brand new facilities that were part of our bond.  Our Elementary has expanded its programs and activities that make learning fun and create an incredible learning environment for the students, which includes a top notch GT program and Robotics program.  The Secondary has continued to excel in numerous extracurricular activities, including FFA, Band, Athletics and a second consecutive STATE CHAMPIONSHIP in overall Team Theater (comprising of UIL Film, UIL Theatrical Design, and UIL One Act Play)!  The Secondary has also been able to reach record Dual Credit participation which extends all the way down to qualifying freshmen!  I would like to encourage anyone interested in our school to reach out to our campus principals and learn about just how wonderful Mount Enterprise ISD is and exactly what exciting things can be offered to enrich your child’s educational experience.

The motto for this year is WILDCAT NATION. Mount Enterprise is a special place, one in which we still believe in solid morals and values that establish a firm foundation for all that we do.  We believe this firm foundation unifies us into a collective, strong, and cohesive group…or in a sense a nation.  We are proud of who we are, our morals and our beliefs.  We feel as though this type of mindset is wound into the fabric of how we approach education and leads us to our vision statement: Small Town Values…Massive Education!  We look forward to another great school year, and as always, we welcome your communication and would love to work with you to enhance the education of your student!

Chance D. Mays, Ed.D.
