Congratulations to Darren for this honor!
Attendance is an important part of the whole education process. Showing up is where it all starts and great instruction starts from there. Miller's Point started a unique attendance incentive recently that the students seemed to enjoy. The top two classes with the highest attendance were treated to a special book reading by some generous administrators from Northeast Lakeview College. NLC's Vice President of Student Success, Dr. Debbie Hamilton, Dean of Student Services Belinda Rivera and the College Director of High School Programs Mr. Philip Hicks showed up to serve as special guest readers of some great stories. The NLC mascot, Nico the Nighthawk, also arrived for a special appearance. Along with the presence of the NLC guests, students were treated to an awesome goodie bag, including t-shirts. What a great partnership with Northeast Lakeview College!
If your child is in 5th grade currently and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are interest areas they have, then the JSTEM Academy may be right for them. There will be several informational meetings that will answer a lot of questions you may have...and may generate a few more. But that's what these meetings are all about...getting questions answered and finding out if a program and school like JSTEM is right for your student.
There typically is a lot of interest in the school each year because of the dynamic curriculum and project based learning that goes on. So if your student has an interest, bring them to one of the meetings listed below and see what it's all about.
KSAT-TV has partnered with Go Public to help highlight some of the great things going on in public school districts and during March, Judson ISD is up. While we know there are great things going on at all of our campuses, only three could participate, so those three in the mix are Salinas ES, Olympia ES and Kitty Hawk MS.
Each campus has a special initiative it's kicked off for this year and is using it to highlight its claim to be a JISD Cool School. The winner is decided by the number of votes each school gets by March 8th. It's not a large time window, but at the end of this voting period, the winning school will be featured on KSAT-TV's SA Live. So let the voting begin. Here's the site.

The young students work with college students, educators, scientists, and engineers on current USAISR research initiatives.
