Randolph Metrocom Rotary Hosts Dr. M.

Spreading the word about some of the good things going on in Judson ISD is an effective way of keeping people informed and in touch.  One way is with personal appearance opportunities like the one JISD Superintendent Dr. Carl Montoya recently accepted at the Metrocom Rotary Club.  The Rotarians invited him to one of their regular meetings at the Olympia Golf Course and Conference Center.  

It gave him the chance to update them on the progress of the most recent bond election and how construction is ramping up from the 2016 Bond as well.  He also touched on some of the unique early college opportunities that will be available to students and how the district's Career and Technology Education programs are offering more career pathways due to recent grants the district has received.  We appreciate the Metrocom Rotary Club for the invitation.  

Accessing STAAR Results

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) notified districts that they were in the process of redesigning the Confidential Student Report (CSR) and that there would be a delay in districts and parents receiving these reports.  These reports are used to notify families of STAAR Results.  According to TEA, scores for students who took a STAAR exam in the spring should be available after June 12 (for STAAR End of Course) or after June 14 (for grades 3-8) by going to the Texas Assessment Management System  https://www.texasassessment.com/.  This site will be updated after June12th.  In the meantime, the links below will give you some guidance on accessing those results.



JISD Extravaganza Featured In NE Herald

The JISD Art Extravaganza is such a huge show that it's bound to get attention from the community and, as of late, also the media. It was the cover story on a recent edition of the Northeast Herald.  The story was a great piece on the variety and creativity of artwork and performances at the event that was hosted recently at Rollings Oak Mall.  A big thank you to everyone that organized and executed this event that featured virtually every campus in the district. JISD also appreciates the partnership with Rolling Oaks Mall in providing the great venue for this display of student work.

Students Prepping For High School Experience

Making that jump from middle school to high school can be a little intimidating to some students. But it helps if they know what to expect and get the "lay of the land" so to speak on what high school is like, the atmosphere, the clubs...just the whole experience and opportunities that await them.  The Office of Post-Secondary Education and Career Readiness Department hosted its 2017 boot camp called "Rising Ninth Graders" at Metzger Middle School.  

The three-day event featured Mr. Mychal Wynn who is very well versed in leading young people into transition and helping them see it as an opportunity of discovery.  This comprehensive bridge program helped kids with their personal outlook about high school as well as the academic part.  It all helped these students get pumped and motivated to the years of involvement, commitment and, yes, studying to be successful at that level.  In the end the aim is for them to be successful in high school and fully prepared for college or a career. 

A big thanks to the volunteer college students from the University of the Incarnate Word and Huston Tillotson University and volunteer alumni from UTSA, Wayland Baptist University, Our Lady of the Lake University and Houston Tillotson College that came each day to assist.

Don't Forget Early Release On Last Day

We want to make sure all parents, guardians and staff members know about the student early release day.  An email was sent out several days ago from the district informing everyone about the last day of school being an early release day.  Below is a schedule for PK through High School regarding when each will be dismissed for the summer.  So don't forget...it'll make that summer feeling arrive that much sooner.  We hope you have a great summer and look forward to seeing students on the first day back on August 28, 2017.  

On June 2, 2017, students will be dismissed according to the schedule below:

Pre-K (AM):7:30 AM – 9:10 AM
Pre-K (PM):9:50 AM – 11:30 AM
