Engaging learning activities at Mt. Vernon Intermediate!

Mount Vernon, a small East Texas town in Franklin County, is home to Mount Vernon Intermediate, a 5th and 6th grade campus. A changing world has brought about a change to our teaching methods and challenged us to find creative ways to provide more support to our students and their families. Our success stems from our quality teachers, outstanding support staff, cooperative parents, and community volunteers. Jax, a nationally certified therapy dog, is an integral part of our campus team. The local community provides us with volunteers that support our Boys Breakfast Crew, Girls Lunch Bunch, and Study Buddies. Local banks provide monetary support for our Million Word Reading Challenge and Think Yourself Out of the Box Math Challenge. A successful recycling program has provided additional funds for our campus. Students are hired to work in the recycling room throughout the year in an attempt to promote good work ethics. Fifth grade students participate in a three-day, overnight, outdoor learning science camp. This program provides real life camping experiences that include teaching geared to our state TEKS. Critical thinking and life skills are enhanced by this opportunity. Tiger Pride is promoted each day by the incorporation of our positive behavior program. Tiger Pride behavior allows the students the chance to sign the Graffiti Wall in our main hallway! Mt. Vernon Intermediate’s philosophy is promoting excellence and maintaining a culture high expectation for our students and staff. This is facilitated and supported by our community and parents.
