Excellence Indicator System report.
Elementary School is named for B.O. McWhorter, who showed a strong interest in
providing school facilities for the community. He was one of the leaders in an
effort to secure property for the construction of a new school building after
a fire destroyed the original frame structure. The new building provided eight
classrooms in an 11,000-square-foot facility. After 1946, six classrooms were
added. Thirteen classrooms, a cafeteria, a storage area and corridor space were
added in 1955. During the 1970-1971 school year, a library was constructed.
The campus is wired for the Internet, and each classroom has at least one Macintosh
and one Windows computer. Students also have access to two computer labs.
Special programs offered at McWhorter include Character Counts, Accelerated Reader,
HOSTS (Helping One Student To Succeed) and Title I.
Family Fridays are part
of the school's parent teacher association program. During monthly Family Friday
programs, students and parents participate in activities and listen to speakers.
Many parents are active in the parent teacher association.

Talent Show, Sixth Grade Banquet, Mighty Mustang and Honor Roll Assembly.
