A Message from Mr. Jordan - May, 2018

The school year is quickly coming to a close.  It seems like yesterday that we were beginning the year.  As the ole saying goes:  The days seem long but the years fly by.  In the school world, the days can be long at times, but the 6 weeks and semesters do seem to fly right on by.

MEISD is having a very successful 2017-2018. Besides the gains we have already seen in academics with expanded dual credit, AP courses and our initial success in STAAR 5th and 8th math and reading, many other areas of the school were well represented in successes and state competition.

A quick rundown:

  1. One Act Play qualified for state for the 2nd year in a row.  Placed 6th
  2. Theatrical Design qualified 8 projects for state competition with many placing in the top 4
  3. For 2A, MEISD earned a Silver Medal ( 2nd place) in overall Fine Arts state competition.
  4. STUCO earned Sweepstakes for the 26th year in a row.
  5. Tennis mixed doubles qualified for state.
  6. Ag mechanics won overall champion at the county show with nearly all projects placing high in their categories and/or making the sale
  7. 4 students qualified for track regionals with 3 placing in the top 6.
  8. Football team qualified for the playoffs for the first time in 3 years.
  9. Band routinely won halftime shows during football and earned “Excellent” ratings at the UIL marching, concert and sight-reading contests.
  10. Fine Arts performed their 5th musical this past fall titled “West Side Story.”
  11.  Mt. Enterprise High School just earned their second straight bronze medal from the US News and World Report “Best High Schools in the Nation” list.
  12. MEISD HS twirlers qualified for UIL state competition for the 4th year in a row.  Previous trips have garnered division 1 Superior ratings.
  13. State Champion girls powerlifter.  3 state records broken.

Obviously, all of the above pales in comparison to what our teachers and staff accomplish on a daily basis with and for our kids.  Seeing an academic “light bulb” come on in a student that was struggling is priceless.  We had numerous moments this year of the bulb shining bright.  Our kids were challenged academically more this year than in the past.  Expectations were definitely on the high end for the entire academic year.

Besides student successes, we are in the process of a major facelift for the entire district.  Beginning in June, all of the parking lots and driveways will be repaired and resurfaced with asphalt.  The tennis courts will be repaired and resurfaced as well.  The courts will look brand new when completed.  We will paint and replace flooring in several areas around the district this summer.

As the summer months approach, the administrators and staff will be diligently working to prepare for 2018-2019.  The office hours for the summer will be 7:30-5:30 Monday-Thursday.

Don’t forget!!  HS 2018 Graduation will be at 8pm on June 1st at the Sports Complex.  The ceremony will be moved to the gymnasium in the event of inclement weather.

Have a great summer!!

 

Byron Jordan
Superintendent
