January has been Board Appreciation Month and campuses all across the district have been showing their appreciation for the work the board has been doing to benefit our students.  Their impact has been immense on such accomplishments such as recent bond elections, new school construction as well as the upgrading of existing campuses and finding a way to continue to offer students a cost effective way to earn college credit while still in high school. So Hats-Off to the Judson ISD Board of Trustees!

Hall of Honor Winners

One of the big moments of the Judson Education Foundation each year is the formal induction of the members of the Judson ISD Hall of Honor.  There are two ways a person can enter the Hall…as a member of the Civic Hall or Athletic Hall.  In 2018 we saw two inductees each go into both of these honored groups. To find out who made it this year open up your email with the subject line: JISD Hall of Honor…Who Made It?  and read the January Judson Post.

JSTEM Teacher Selected For Excellence Award

JSTEM 6th grade teacher Randall Ohman was selected by the Dee Howard Foundation for its STEM Education Excellence Award.  This award selects one Pre K- 12 STEM teacher in our community that best incorporates the aviation and aerospace subject matter in STEM instruction and brings it to underserved students in the San Antonio metro area.  The selection was by a blue ribbon committee that made its selection from a pool of candidates from public schools and charter schools in the area. 

6th Grade JSTEM Teacher Randall Ohman

Mr. Ohman oversees the JSTEM SmartLab where kids get an introduction to engineering and a number of different technology applications. He also hosts what is called "Make Time."  That's an afterschool program that allows students some free-thinking time for invention, fabrication and tearing down to fix things or repurpose them.  He also coaches the school's robotics teams in strategies and robot design.  His students have been semifinalists or finalists in a number of national contests sponsored by NASA, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and DuPont.  Mr. Ohman was selected by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to represent Texas at the 2017 National Summer Teaching Institute.  

We congratulate Mr. Ohman on this latest honor and are proud of his success with our students.

Let's Talk College & Career Readiness

Judson ISD along with Randolph Field ISD and Joint based San Antonio Liaison Office are hosting a special series of information and motivation sessions for students. It's called Let's Talk College and Career Readiness. It's coming up February 8, 2018 at Judson High School featuring special guest speakers City of Converse Mayor Al Suarez and District Attorney Nico LaHood.  

In conjunction with this event the Judson ISD Special Education Department will also be hosting "Transition Talk" which will be specific to the future of Special Education students and where their potential can take them. 

 

A number of presenters from major universities in the region will be there to talk about hot career areas...where the demand is and where those prospects could be going in the coming years.  They will also speak to what it will take in college, technical school or just plain skills to be a viable candidate for the market place.  Join us for a glimpse of the future...your student's future.
