Did you know Wagner High School has a Bistro that cooks and serves food? In order to spruce the place up, the school’s JROTC cadets renovated the Bistro’s outdoor seating area to give it a five star restaurant feel. The students, along with instructor LTC Williams, have been working on the bistro renovation as a service learning project. Their goal is to mentor students so that they learn to execute leadership skills and engage in team building. The project entailed pulling weeds, power-washing, assembling patio furniture (donated by Lowe’s Home Improvement, FM 3009 store) and painting. As you can see from the pictures, the Bistro looks fantastic. Great work!
The Judson High School Choir program entered five choirs in the recent UIL Region 11 Choir Concert and sight Reading contest at the JISD Performing Arts Center. At the end of the contest they went 5 for 5 in winning Sweepstakes! That's the highest award given in these contests. Congratulations to these students for all the hard work they have put into the year and congratulations also go out to Choir Directors David Short and Tiffany Cristo.
You may not know it, but Kitty Hawk Middle School has a class of students that are learning the principles of agriculture. Mr. Rumfield has been working with them on of the basics of growing plants and it's serving a two-fold purpose. The students are developing a green thumb while the campus gets better and better looking with the landscaping getting attention.
Landscaped areas can be a real job just keeping them maintained with controlling and pulling weeds and keeping the plants from getting overgrown. Nothing like a little sweat equity to keep your campus looking good while learning at the same time.
