Members of the Judson High School Chapter of the Business Professionals of America came out of the regional leadership conference doing very well. The event essentially measured different business skills, abilities and procedures that students executed and these Judson students performed with pride and distinction. Congratulations to these students who have now qualified to go on to the state competition in Dallas. We wish them well.

Many of the JISD family...especially those at the Rolling Meadows Elementary School campus remember Librarian Dawn Mulder. She was a warm and dynamic librarian that showed her love for reading to students over and over again. That giving continued over the holidays. We wanted to share some pictures that the Communications Department just got that showed a special display of giving beyond this life from the Mulder family. Dawn's husband Danny along with two of their daughters visited Rolling Meadows before the holidays and gave books to each student to take home.
Dawn Mulder passed away suddenly in September...she is greatly missed.

The Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) awards its Bill Cormack Scholarship to one student in the state each year and it went to a Judson High School student. Scott Rogers, who is in the Judson Choir and is a talented pianist, received the scholarship worth $15,000 to study Music Education in Texas. Executive Director Robert Floyd personally called Judson Principal Jesse Hernandez to let him know about the award and how qualified Scott was to win it. He is a three year All-State Choir member and sings professionally with the San Antonio Chamber Choir and plays piano and percussion in the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio.
Scott plans on a double-major in Music Education and Piano Performance. They've kept this award in the family since the only other JISD student to win this scholarship was Scott's brother Ryan Rogers who graduated from Judson High School in 2013.
Crestview Elementary School has been nominated as a National Blue Ribbon School. Just the nomination for the award is an honor in itself and one that few schools achieve. This year only 26 public schools in Texas were nominated…Crestview was one of only two in the San Antonio area.
KSAT-TV came out to do a story with Principal Yvonne Munoz, Teacher Robin Ratliff and 5th grade students Mara Rodriguez and Lilly Mauldin about the nomination and the reason for its success.
Crestview has built a reputation through the years as a school that produces excellence in academic and personal achievement among its students and staff. This past year, STAAR assessment tests saw the school receive all possible distinctions from the Texas Education Agency.
