Good Morning Blackcats!
Exciting plans are already underway for the 2024-2025 school year! Below is a list of several internal promotions; they showcase some of the talented employees we have in Mexia ISD. These personnel moves will be highly beneficial to our district.
* Mr. Marcus Wilson will transition to Principal of Mexia High School. For the remainder of this school year, Mr. John Turpin will serve as the Interim Principal.
* Mrs. Jozette Jenkins will transition to Director of Special Education
* Mrs. Chimere Conner will transition to Principal of Developmental Center
* Mrs. Belinda Cotton will transition to Principal of RQ Sims
* Mr. Eric Shamblin will transition to central office in the Business and Finance Office as our new Coordinator of Procurement, Capital Assets and Inventory Management
* Mrs. Amanda Wilson will transition to Assistant Principal of Mexia Junior High
Each of these employees will finish the 2023-2024 school year in their current roles. With the promotion of these individuals, we will need assistant principals at McBay, Sims, and the High School for 2024-2025. If you or someone you know are interested in joining this great group of leaders, applications will be available on the Mexia ISD website.
Exciting things are already happening in our district and I am looking forward to the great work these individuals add to help increase opportunities for our students!
It’s a GREAT day to be a Blackcat!

Good morning Blackcat family, we just wanted to let everyone know that one of our buses on county rd 427 pulled over to let a car pass and ended up getting stuck in a small ditch. There was no bus accident. There were no injuries and everyone involved was safe. Thanks to the excellent work of the MISD Transportation department, all students were quickly loaded onto another bus and transported to school so the stuck bus could be pulled back onto the pavement

CTE month kicked off with Day 1 of the Career Launch Academy which highlighted industrial welding. Students toured SWARCO and a few even got the opportunity to weld! Afterwards students went to Navarro College to learn about the welding program, meet the welding professor, and everyone was able to "weld" via virtual reality! #CTE #NavarroCollege #SWARCO
Sims students will have the opportunity to have a Valentines picture taken by Brandi Garza on Monday, February 5th at no cost to parents. Thank you to the PTA for covering the cost of these photos.
