It was also identified in the top 100 in the state of Texas (ranking 1,500+ top high schools in state). It's also been nationally ranked. Take a look at the link below.
In addition, in a recent high school robotics competition at Texas A&M University, the JECA Robotics Team came in 3rd place overall with a 1st place win in creativity. Congratulations to these students and the school overall for producing excellence.
The Copperfield Elementary School Choir recently performed at the Christmas Tree Lighting in front of the Converse Police Department. It's been a tradition since 2009 and these kids did a terrific job singing songs like Oh Christmas Tree, Jingle Bells and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. They helped infuse the occasion with a lot of holiday spirit as the tree was lit and the program ended with the grand entrance of Santa and Mrs. Claus. A big thanks to Ms. Crisp for preparing the kids for a nice performance.
The Christmas season has just begun, but the big man in the red suit is already formulating his lists and finding out what kind of cargo he'll be carrying on that big night. That will affect how much magic dust he may need for the trip and how much the reindeer will need to eat for takeoff, etc. It's all a pretty involved process. These visits are very important to that end and he tries to start as early as possible. This visit was at Candlewood Elementary School and Mrs. Claus was there too talking with kids and doing her part.
The recent Yam Drive that the Judson ISD Police Department and the Maintenance Department conducted was a great success and the gracious generosity of so many people helped out the Raul Jimenz Thanksgiving Dinner in a big way. As has been the case the last several years, Olympia Elementary School pulled away as the clear first place winner of the drive and those who rounded up the most cans were crowned Yam King and Queen. So here they are...Yam Royalty for the year dressed in their robes and crowns.
