 The ACE program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children. The program is designed to help students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math. ACE also offers a broad array of enrichment activities such as MakerSpace, Wonder Workshop, Music, Cooking, and Recreation. 


Family Engagement:

Research shows that when families are involved, students perform better in school and beyond!  This year the ACE program has partnered with the McBay/Sims PTA to provide monthly family “Paw’ty Nights”, which include a variety of crafts and activities in conjunction with the monthly PTA meeting. These events are held on the 2nd Monday of every month; dates are as follows:

October 9, 2017

We invite you to attend as we continue to provide opportunities for families to be involved in the learning process and academic success of our students.


Meet the Site Coordinator

My name is Jami Archer.  I am employed by ESC Region 12 as the ACE Site Coordinator for Mexia ISD.  As such, I oversee the programming at both McBay and Sims.  I can be reached by phone at (254) 562-4030 ext. 4630, or by email at jarcher@esc12.net.  I have offices on both campuses, and *usually* can be found at Sims throughout the morning, and McBay during the afternoon.

A little information about myself: I am a 1999 graduate of Mexia High School.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Texas A&M-Commerce in May of 2009.  I have one son, Bryce, who is a 2017 graduate of Mexia High School, and a 2 year old daughter, Rhyan.

Prior to becoming the ACE Site Coordinator in 2014, I was employed by Mexia ISD as a 1st grade teacher for 5 years. I am  honored to have the opportunity to provide the ACE program for the pre-kindergarten thru 5th grade students of Mexia ISD.  I want to work with you to make this the best year for your child!
