With testing season upon us, MISD's Executive Team (Ryder Appleton, Brad Andrews, Shelli Killingsworth, LaKechia Johnson & Erica Chapa) treated our hardworking staff to a buffalo wing meal fit for a king. This homemade lunch was a labor of love by our leadership team complete with smoked/fried buffalo wings, sweet and salty waffle fries, five different scratch made sauces and two decadent dessert trifles. A special shout out goes to two of our board members (Lisa Lauderdale & Ron Fowler) who also came to help serve our staff. 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
