JISD Military Families Enjoy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Holidays can often present a challenge for military families who have loved ones stationed far from home. For the 1st, 2nd and some three or more times, many of our J.I.S.D. military community celebrated Thanksgiving without their families. While some were able to reunite around the dinner table to celebrate Thanksgiving, many of them were serving on a Permanent Change of Assignment (PCS), Temporary Duty (TDY), deployments or overseas in combat and non-combat operations.

Three organizations stepped in to help and went beyond just good wishes for the holidays. They put their boots-on-the-ground and took action by providing a little extra comfort for the families during this time of the year. San Antonio Food Bank, Rackspace and Now Word Missions Ministries Outreach Project provided Judson ISD military-connected and numerous civilian families with special Thanksgiving baskets that included a frozen turkey, holiday fixings and fresh produce to help stretch the budget. A tremendous thank you to Rackspace & the San Antonio Food Bank for their "Fill A Box, Feed A Family" project and Now Word Missions Ministry for their continued support in its "O'Give Thanks" program.

Congrats to Da'Nasia Hood for all her hard work. She has signed a full college scholarship with Texas State University.  Da'Nasia is a 4 year varsity letterman for the Wagner High School Lady Thunderbirds Basketball team and is a leader on and off the court.  
 

Angel Hastings will be continuing her basketball career at Lamar University.  Angel is a very vocal and intimidating player on the court.  After recovering from knee surgery last May, she has continued to work hard and get herself back on the court. Congratulations to her and her family on this tremendous accomplishment.

Ranger Runners Accomplish Marathon Goal

Students from the Salinas Elementary Running Club recently participated in the Subway Kids Rock run held downtown during the Rock and Roll Marathon. The run marked the last mile in their journey for 26.2 miles, a full marathon that they have completed. This week, the kids are wearing their blue shirts and medals from the weekend. If you see one of them in the hall be sure and give them a high five for a job well done. Great job Ranger Runners! The school and your coaches are proud of you.

Santa Enjoys Breakfast At Miller’s Point
