Message from Mr. Ramos

MSI Families,

It was the highlight of my week to welcome you and your students to MSI for Meet The Teacher on Friday evening. I met so many wonderful families. There was a strong sense of optimism in the air, and I appreciated all the smiling faces as we look forward to a great year.

I value and appreciate any feedback or thoughts from our community. It is my goal to be an accessible campus leader as I serve you. My contact information can be found below, please reach out anytime.

Use the entrance on TH Johnson Drive if you are dropping off in the morning or picking up in the afternoon.

On the first day your student will come home with a card you can fill out and place on your dashboard to let us know who you are picking up.

Does your student walk to school?

If your student walks to school they will enter and exit based on where they live. If they walk along Mallard Lane they will enter at the cafe on the south end of the school with bus riders. If they walk along TH Johnson Drive they will enter at the main entrance with car riders.

Staff Spotlight

Mrs. Witt

I am so excited to join the Main Street Intermediate and Taylor ISD family! This is my 26th year in education and I don't think I've ever been so excited or energized for a school year to begin. My professional mantra has always been, "Do the right thing for kids and it will all work out." My job is to support your child, their teachers and you as a parent to fully support our students. We are working hard every day to make that happen. #WeGotThis

If I can be of any assistance or support, please feel free to contact me at or call the main office number and ask for Mrs. Witt. Here's to an awesome 2021-2022 school year!
