Summer Winding Down, Bond Work Cranking Up

Work going on at JCARE Academy

If you've been around any number of campuses in Judson ISD, chances are you've been seeing some construction work going on.  This is the result of the 2016 Bond propositions that voters passed.  This involved a number of upgrades and renovations at existing campuses.  The initial work at some of the older campuses was to make them a bit more secure with vestibule style entrances. After that, it was updating flooring, dressing rooms and facilities that students use all the time.  Technology upgrades are also on the way and don't forget work is beginning on a new elementary school on the south end of the district in the Escondido North area.  

Below are pictures of some of the biggest projects that have been pretty active...such as Woodlake Hills Middle School where expansive soils are being addressed and the impact is being dealt with. Also, Hartman Elementary School where new flooring and wall surfaces are being replaced. We'll be touring the district over the next many months to try to give a smattering of the work being done. Stay tuned.

Administrative Summit-Planning The Journey Ahead

Building on the successes from the previous year...that's part of the mission of Administrative Summit.  This year's Summit at Judson Early College Academy gave an opportunity for all campus principals and district office directors to get on the same page and know what the plan is for the coming year.  Everyone was briefed on new laws and guidelines that will kick in this school year and then the Curriculum and Instruction Department dug into the nuts and bolts of taking what we've learned from student tests results. That helps everyone see what needs to be addressed and how, as well as identifying strengths and enhancing them with specific strategies.  

    

NBA Stars Return To District To Give Back

Giving back to the community.  It's an easy phrase to say...almost trite.  But then there are those who follow through with that idea.  Like former Wagner students Andre Roberson and Jordan Clarkson who recently conducted a special basketball camp at Veterans Memorial High School.  Both are impact players on high profile NBA teams...Andre is with the Oklahoma City Thunder who always seem to go deep in the playoffs and Jordan who has served his team, the Los Angeles Lakers, as a shooting guard as well as point guard serving up assists. 

A rockin' crowd at the gym cheered them on as they made a grand entrance, spoke to the crowd for a moment and then quickly got to the business of working with the kids and helping them have fun with the game.  As you can see, Andre and Jordan had a great time hanging out together and encouraging the kids in the process.
