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!!!  

 

Kirby MS Varsity Band Takes Sweepstakes

This time of year is when many school concert bands go to UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Contest.  Judson ISD is so fortunate to have such talented students in the field of music and great instructors that teach and encourage them towards excellence.  Kirby Middle School's Varsity Band earned another Sweepstakes Trophy at the annual Region 12 UIL Middle School Band Competition.  They were one of the 13 bands out of 24 in their category who earned the highest performing award of Sweepstakes. A big thank you goes out to all the parents who have been supportive and cooperative in getting students to rehearsals, donations and just time to prepare. It couldn't have happened without you.
