A Sincere Thank You To Parent Volunteers

With the school threat that's been in the news lately, parent volunteers stepped up and gave their time to make sure the school day was safe.  These background checked parents decided they wanted to take action to not only make sure that the campuses were safe and secured, but also calming any fears or worries of students. They were watching entry points, walking the campuses and watching out for anything suspicious.  It's great to see how the Judson ISD community can get together and overcome challenging situations when feelings are high and take a practical and proactive approach to helping.  Superintendent Dr. Willis Mackey and the whole JISD Board offer a sincere thank you for your efforts. 

The following is not an exhaustive list, but these are many of the volunteers that helped out:

Balfour Honors Wagner Yearbook Staffers

Being on the yearbook staff is quite an honor and quite a job too.  Summarizing the school year in pictures and stories can be a daunting task.  For the Wagner yearbook staff, their hard work is being spotlighted. They have been honored by the Balfour Yearbook company for producing one of the top school annual publications.  It was recognized for its design and coverage. As a result, the Wagner High School yearbook is featured in the 28th edition of "Yearbook Yearbook."  The company only honors the best of the best and only 4% of yearbook staffs earn this honor. Congratulations!!!  

 

Frank John Garners Local News Coverage

Many people, especially students and staff at Wagner High School, know what a talented and quality person Frank John is. Now a lot more people know.  He was the subject of a recent profile in the Northeast Herald.  It takes commitment and a lot of hard work to accomplish what Frank has done and we know he's not finished yet.  Making the All State Band and imagining the competition that goes along with that is a daunting thought, but he's done it all four years in high school.  Take a look at the news article and if you see Frank, congratulate him on producing excellence consistently...all four years at Wagner.

Judson HS Tennis Ace To TLU

It's good to see our district's tennis players get some recognition from colleges in the area.  We want to congratulate Megan Ingram who has signed on to play college tennis next year at Texas Lutheran University.  Good to see her family there for this special occasion. She's been a great performer for Judson and we wish her the best next year.  Her coach is Jimmy LaLonde.

Rolling Meadows STAAR Rally, Extra Motivation

Teachers at Rolling Meadows got a bit kooky to get the message out to students on the STAAR test. Do your best and don't sweat the rest .  Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 got together for the rally which featured Kinder through 2nd grade teachers performing funny skits and dances. Even Elvis was in the house to dish out some encouragement.  Thanks to the Judson High School Cheer Squad and Drumline for their time. There was also some dealing making going on.  A contract was drawn up and signed that if their scores meet state standards, the assistant principal would get "slimed" and Principal Erika Garza would have to kiss a horse. A number of teachers also agreed to get a pie in the face for some extra motivation.  Wow...talk about taking one for the team!!  Stay Calm and Test On.
