Jaguar Jazz Band Hits The Road For A Tour

The Judson Middle School Jaguar band program is continuing to grow in size and in the kind of music they're studying and performing. Their performances have allowed them to book a number of other gigs over the last several weeks.  First, there was the performance at the JISD Honorary Volunteer Banquet at JECA where they entertained before the ceremony started. That was in front of a lot of district officials and they did a wonderful job.  Then they came back to their home campus to perform for  Copperfield and Converse Elementary School students who will be going into 6th grade next year. Then they rounded out their tour at Judson High School where they performed at the Performing Arts Center in the foyer as those attending the annual JHS Percussion and Jazz Concert were filing in to find their seats.  Each stop was a great experience in performing and working together as a musical team.

    

Judson Senior Inks Letter For Volleyball Scholarship

Athletics are a great way to pay for college and Judson High School senior volleyball player Mykeeta Ussery signed a National Letter of Intent to play and study at Wentworth Military Academy and College. That's in Lexington, Missouri...home of the Dragons.  We wish her the best of luck in all she does. 

Volleyball Scholarship For Wagner Senior

Congratulations to Wagner senior Nyjah Meadows who recently signed with Eastfield College in Mesquite, Texas to play volleyball in the fall.  We want to wish her the best of luck in her studies and her spikes! We are proud of you.

Paschall Students Imagining Their Future

As a part of Paschall Elementary's effort to carry out the district's mission to prepare students for college and career, a number of students took a very motivating trip to see the college life. School counselor Ms. Hume works with groups of very motivated students every morning before school starts and during recess time to make this experience meaningful and get them thinking about their future.  Students designed and decorated backpacks with the logos of their favorite colleges and icons of their favored areas of study. This was all leading up to a big field trip. The Paschall Elementary Tiger Team and Book Study Groups took a trip to the downtown UTSA campus. They posed questions to a panel in a lecture hall, participated in a scavenger hunt around campus and toured Cafe' College for an engaging seminar called "College 101" for elementary school students.  How fun is that?!

 

Wagner Alamo Academy Students Reception

Being a part of the Alamo Academy is an honor and a dynamic program partnering with the district's Career and Technology Education students.  16 incoming Wagner juniors were accepted into the program along with those students returning making a total of 23 for next year.  These students attended the Acceptance Letter Reception and will be involved in one of the five academies in the Alamo Colleges. Those academies include Aerospace Engineering, Health Professions, Advanced Technology and Manufacturing, Information Technology and Security and Heavy Equipment.  Being a part of this unique educational effort allows students to receive $12,000 in scholarships and up to 30 college credit hours.  Those in the Health Professions Academy are automatically accepted into the Nursing program. Congratulations to them for this big step!
