District Food Drive A Success

The JISD School Health Advisory Council partnered with Blessed Angels and JISD campuses by hosting a District Food Drive to help connect hungry families in our community to healthy and nutritious food. The Food drive had two competitions, the Best Dressed Love Bin (most creatively decorated bin) & the Completely Filled With Love Bin (bin with most donated items). The Best Dressed Love Bin award went to Kirby Middle School with Paschall Elementary finishing as the runner–up.

JISD Attends Texas Social Workers Conference

The social workers that work with our students and their families are an awesome part of how the District provides positive and beneficial services to our community. They are always learning new ways to help our kids. Judson ISD social workers attended the 27th Annual Texas School Social Workers Conference in Austin. The conference was developed to provide school-based service providers a wide array of effective techniques and programs to enhance their work in schools as they meet the challenges found in today’s school settings. The participants gained new strategies and tools to empower children, parents and school personnel.

Judson and Veterans Girls Still In State Title Hunt

These two very young Rocket and Patriot girls basketball teams are so close to a State UIL Basketball Championship.  They have reached the semifinals going on at the Alamodome and we wanted to say good luck to both teams and show district support. The picture above is proof that these two teams are supporting one another in the state tournament.  If you plan to go, just remember you need to buy two separate tickets for the two games. The Lady Rockets are hoping to make it to the 6A Final while the Lady Patriots have their sites set on the 4A title.
