Judson and Veterans Girls Still In State Title Hunt

These two very young Rocket and Patriot girls basketball teams are so close to a State UIL Basketball Championship.  They have reached the semifinals going on at the Alamodome and we wanted to say good luck to both teams and show district support. The picture above is proof that these two teams are supporting one another in the state tournament.  If you plan to go, just remember you need to buy two separate tickets for the two games. The Lady Rockets are hoping to make it to the 6A Final while the Lady Patriots have their sites set on the 4A title.

Board Recognitions 2-15-18

Pledge Leader Dillan Tanner is a 5th grade student leader in a number of ways at Olympia Elementary School. She is in the Mayor Fitness Council, Vice President of Olympia’s Student Council, serves on our safety patrol and she is on the A-B honor roll.  Her favorite subject is Math and outside of school she enjoys gymnastics and likes to color.


Our first recognition comes from Converse Elementary School. The Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association or TEPSA recognizes effective student councils around the state that are active in not only their school, but also in their community participating in service projects and charitable events.  That’s exactly what the Converse Elementary School Student Council does.  They are learning the impact of making a difference in their school and the community.  They have been selected as a TEPSA Honor Student Council. This is the second year in a row.  Congratulations to the following members: Ashtyn Polchert, Brent Bingheim, Ryleigh Gunter, Hannah Brewer, Logan Jahn, Taeja Cubit, Jasmine Aguilera, Austin Dekens, Alanys Velez-Cruz, Kayla Jahn, Serenity Rodriguez, Emily Hedlund,  Jovie Zamarron, Anika Tinney, Mary Frey, Ty Aiken, and Mattie Crabtree.


Our second recognition comes from the JSTEM Academy.  Science, Technology, Engineering and Math as you know is a part of the educational curriculum that gets a lot of attention these days because of the kind of high tech jobs out there that students need to be ready for.  So quality instruction in this field is a must.  Recently the Dee Howard Foundation selected one of our teachers as its STEM Education Excellence Award recipient.  It specifically spotlights those teachers that best incorporate aviation and aerospace concepts into STEM instruction and doing so to underserved students in the San Antonio metro area.

Mr. Ohman oversees the JSTEM SmartLab and directs something called Make Time…an afterschool program that emphasizes invention and repurposing.  Many of his students have been very successful in contests sponsored by organizations such as NASA, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and DuPont.


Our final recognition is from the Child Nutrition Department.  From food preparation and serving, to the planning of meals, this department is always busy making sure that our students and staff have delicious tasting meals that are nutritious and expose students to a variety of foods so they can expand their palate as they grow and mature.  The Texas Department of Agriculture recently selected Judson ISD’s Child Nutrition Department for its “Best of the Bunch Award” in the 2017 Local Products Challenge. Less than 10 percent of school districts in the state attain this level of achievement.  This takes leadership and support to make sure that the food quality remains high and local produce is served when at all possible.  That means fresher food for kids and at the same time supporting local producers.  The board would like to recognize Child Nutrition Director Janet Daniel and Assistant Director Beveylon Concha. They are also being presented with the official recognition from Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller.


Kirby MS Robotics Team Rolls In First Contest

There's a first time for everything and the Kirby Middle School Robotics team members were newbies to robotic competitions...in fact, the First Lego Qualifying Tournament was their first time ever to compete.  Well, they performed like seasoned pros as they competed toe-to-toe against 23 other teams in this tournament hosted at JSTEM Academy.  The Kirby team won the Robot Performance Award for scoring the highest in robot mission completion. They also cleaned up the content by taking home the 1st Place Champion's Award for excellence and innovation in both the Robot Game and Project. The next step...the Alamo East Division Championship in March.  Good Luck!


JECA Student Selected Youth Of The Year

San Antonio Youth of the Year Savannah Mayhood

The Boys and Girls Club each year select a student that exhibits the highest leadership qualities such as communication, goal-setting, and teamwork.  After a lot of preparation and competition in writing, speech making and interviewing, one student was chosen.  Judson Early College Academy student Savannah Mayhood was selected as San Antonio's Youth of the Year.  

She will go on to the state competition in March.  We'll be following Savannah as she continues on and expect to read more about her in the next upcoming edition of the Judson Journal.  Congratulations.
