Rising Star At Veterans Memorial

Veterans Memorial junior Sarah Raffel was recently selected as the recipient of the Rising Star award by the Assistance League of San Antonio. She was nominated by a former teacher based on her previous writing work. While she won with an essay she wrote for the contest, writing samples from her previous schools also helped in the selection process. She was surprised in one of her classes by Assistance League officials, Principal Greg Brauer, and Dr. Ball.  Congratulations! She will read a poem that she has written at a Gala at the Witte Museum in March.


Spotlight On CTE: Counselors Get The Works At Veterans

Campuses across the district have recently been showing their appreciation to counselors in all sorts of ways. Veterans Memorial High School thought outside the box and enlisted its Cosmetology Department to show its appreciation.  The VMHS Patriot Salon treated its counseling staff to a Spa Day.  Cosmetology students gained valuable practice while showing our counselors some much-deserved appreciation!  It was also a perfect opportunity to showcase one of the great CTE programs in JISD as part of CTE month.  Judson ISD is proud of these students and thankful for this amazing counseling team.

Copperfield ES Showing Its Artistic Side

Copperfield Elementary School has been doing some great things academically, but recently students took the opportunity to show that they have quite an artistic side too.  WIth more than 400 entries, the contest was broken down by grade levels and judges had a great time enjoying these student creations.  Each grade level was awarded a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-place winner with an extra category for creativity.  A big thank you to all the judges.  Superintendent Dr. Jeanette Ball, Fine Arts Director Keith Witt, JISD Board Vice President Renee Paschall, and JISD Chief of Police Teresa Ramon.  Also appreciation to those who helped put this event together including Ms. Elizondo, Ms. Rodriguez, and of course Copperfield Principal Ms. Wrather.
