Veterans Memorial High School: A Beginning

Veterans Memorial High School has been open to students since the first day of school, but September 9th was a special day of formally cutting the ribbon on the school.  Principal Christina Clark hosted the ceremony that brought in the student body to the gymnasium complete with the Patriot Band and Choir. Brigadier General James P. Wong (Commanding General, ARNG, Army South) Fort Sam Houston, JISD Superintendent Dr. Carl A. Montoya and JISD Board President Steve Salyer addressed the students.  Veterans Memorial High School opened this year to approximately 600 freshmen and sophomore students and will be expanding in the coming years to include juniors and seniors. We are proud of Patriot Nation and look for great things from these students and staff over the years.  What a tremendous start!

SAT/PSAT Test Day Cometh, Positive Prep Is Key

For sophomores, juniors and seniors, October 19th is a big day. It's the day many of these students will be taking the SAT/PSAT to show colleges and universities how prepared they are for college academics.  While seniors will take the test for college admission, sophomores and juniors will take the preliminary SAT or PSAT. It will give them a good idea of the skills they'll need to improve their chances of getting accepted to the school of their choice.  

SAT prep workshops are being hosted by Judson, Wagner and JECA leading up to the test day. The district is also making online resources available to help students to be ready through Shmoop University, practice tests with Khan Academy and even a test prep app for Apple and Android devices for getting prepared even on the go.  Take a look at the resources below.

Wagner Drum Line Shows Community Support

Community support from local businesses and residents is essential, but it can go both ways.  The Wagner High School drumline was invited to add some energy and support to a grand opening of a local business.  The event really took off once the percussion group marched in and through the crowd.  Band Director Jeremy Chapman along with the Kirby Fire Department and company officials all participated in the ribbon cutting that formally opened everything.
