JISD Student Gets TV Time As Video Contestant

The BexarFest Multimedia Festival is a contest that encourages San Antonio-area students to learn more about communications and their community by telling the stories that change lives. It engages students with nonprofit organizations to produce videos that tell that group's story in a three-minute video.  For the organization, it allows them to get a high-quality product that it can use for marketing and informational purposes, while the students get real-world experience in the field of video production and working with a client.  Judson Early College Academy student Logan Roelofs was featured on KENS 5's Good Day SA recently for his participation in the event.  He appeared with BexarFest Executive Director Randy Lankford to explain what the event is all about and the fun students have with it.  You can take a look at the segment by clicking on the link below and check out the video entry from Logan and the JECA team. 




JECA's Seven Star Celebration

Distinctions are one of the ways that the Texas Education Agency shows a measure of excellence in instruction and student performance. At the secondary level, there are seven possible distinctions that a school can achieve. Judson Early College Academy continues its history of academic excellence and again achieve seven out of seven possible academic distinctions.  That's a fantastic achievement considering those areas include ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, Academic Growth, Closing Performance Gaps, and Post Secondary Readiness. JECA is in a relatively small group of campuses across the state that have earned all these distinctions and deserves recognition.  Congratulations to Dr. Juarez and her staff on this award of achievement. 




Surprise Homecoming For Military Family At Spring Meadows

One of Spring Meadows' parents, Amanda Hooper, US Army/PV2, recently surprised her kids with a special unannounced homecoming. The Spring Meadows Hawk family helped surprise the boys by having them take a photo in front of our Christmas tree with their mom in the background without their knowledge. The boys were shown the picture to see if they liked it and the looks on their faces when they finally realized their mother was in the background was priceless! The rest was tears of joy, hugs, smiles, and love. 

Ms. Hooper graduated basic training from Fort Jackson, South Carolina in November and continued her AIT training at Fort Lee, Virginia, where she will graduate on the 17th of January. She hasn't seen her boys since August.
Thank you for your service to our country, Mrs. Hooper!

Miller's Point Read Around The School

Just before students at Miller's Point Elementary were released for the holidays, they enjoyed a yuletide story that came to life for them on the stage.  The Grinch made an appearance and re-enacted his holiday story. What better way to learn to love reading than participating in Read Around the School. Reading groups and buddies enjoyed short stories that were read by different staff members throughout the day! 


Judson Healthcare Students Help With Blood Drive

Community service projects are good initiatives for students to work because it underscores the importance of thinking of others.  Judson High School Medical Assisting and Radiology students recently participated in a blood drive to help those who need the gift of life.  The holidays are typically a time of year when blood supplies run low and opportunities like this truly help out those who are in need at hospitals and various healthcare facilities.  Frances Smith Owens helped organize the student participation in this drive.
