JISD Distinguished Educators To Be Recognized

The quality of JISD's teaching professionals is something that needs to be celebrated. Caring about students and knowing how to engage their minds is an ability that is a gift. We have teachers that do this each day at such a high level that it's just extraordinary.  Each year, every campus nominates a teacher from their school as its Distinguished Educator. That person exemplifies the total teacher...one who connects with students, is innovative in getting through to a range of children and learning styles, as well as how they work with other teachers and administrators. 

Below is a list of the Distinguished Educators that will be recognized. If you've been a student or a parent of a student of one of these teachers and want to tell them thank you, you have your chance coming up on December 17, 2018, at the Performing Arts Center starting at 6 pm. 

Community Partners Step Up For Military Families

The San Antonio Food Bank, Rackspace and Now Word Missions Ministries Outreach Project provided Judson ISD military-connected, McKinney Vento and civilian families with special Thanksgiving baskets that included a frozen turkey, holiday fixings and fresh produce to help stretch the budget. A tremendous thank you to Rack Space, San Antonio Food Bank for the “Fill A Box, Feed A Family” project and Now Word Missions Ministry for their continued support in its "O’Give Thanks” project. 
For many families in our Judson ISD military community, they celebrate Thanksgiving in a different manner every year, depending on their leave status and current operation; with one or both spouses serving on a deployment. For the third consecutive year, three organizations stepped in and helped.

Jingle Bell Jamboree Is Right Around The Corner!

The Christmas Season has officially started and for many people the typical gift giving is not good enough.  We're not talking necessarily spending big bucks, but there's going to be a great variety of unique gift items at this year's Jingle Bell Jamboree at a range of prices.  There will be a buffet of over 70 vendors with all sorts of ideas for that someone who might be a little difficult to please or know what to give. And the event always has great student performances of great Christmas music that make the whole event more fun and festive.  It's at Wagner High School Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 10 am to 3 pm.  Not only will the gift ideas and the music be great, but it's also a great way to support the Judson Education Foundation!
