National School Lunch Week, Since 1962

It's National School Lunch Week and our campuses are serving up not only healthy meals but promoting the importance of good nutrition for effective learning. Dr. Ball was spotted at Woodlake Hills Middle School serving up lunch and Hopkins Elementary School's Administration was also hitting the serving line too. National School Lunch Week was created in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy to celebrate and spotlight the benefits of the National School Lunch Program. This week recognizes the importance of a healthy school lunch and what it does to fuel a productive learning day at school and beyond.  30 million students are served healthy lunches every school day...5 billion annually.

Masters McTeacher Night A Success

Masters Elementary participated in McTeacher Night hosted by McDonald’s. Teachers and staff could be seen working the drive-through, the fry station, taking orders at the front counter and selling cookies in the lobby. It was a fun-filled night for staff, students and parents. The class with the highest attendance won a Happy Meal Party and students received a free homework pass if they came to the event. Masters will also receive 25% of all the sales during the 2 hour window of the event. McTeacher Night was a big success!

JISD and Healthy Schools: Your Flu Fighters

The 2017-2018 flu season was the worst in a decade with reports of some districts closing whole schools because of students and staff going down with it.  This year Judson ISD is teaming up with Healthy Schools to offer flu shots to our STUDENTS AND STAFF with $0 copay...that means it is free of cost.   STAFF just need to notify the campus where they want to go to get the shot and bring proof of insurance with them when they arrive. They'll be asked to fill out a short form as well at that time.  JISD STUDENTS can get the flu shot whether their family has insurance or not, but signup is encouraged so sufficient vaccine is made available for each clinic.  Children of JISD STAFF members (JISD students or not) can get the shot too, but they should be signed up and insurance card available to show on arrival. 

It's an effort to be proactive about the flu season, and while the shot is not fool-proof, statistics show it makes a difference.  Clinics will be set up at each of our campuses during a three day period in November, but we wanted to give you a heads up on the where and when now.  The links below show you the shot schedule for each campus and an online portal to sign up for the shot.  Being looking for more information and communication about this campaign in the coming days.

Miller's Point Visits The Biggest Science Classroom

Studying adaptations in Birds of a Feather

The Miller's Point Jets airmailed themselves to the biggest science classroom...nature. At Twin Lakes Science Camp in Cedar Park students recently got their hands dirty with some exciting science classes. The curriculum included Life at Camp, Web of Life, Birds of a Feather, and Cycles and Water Ecology.  Along with those engrossing concepts to explore, students also studied the impact of math on science when they stepped into kayaks or hit the center of an archery target.  To wrap up the event, students practiced their communication and team-building with a debate and taking on the high and low ropes course. What a day!
