JISD Hall Of Honor Deadline This Friday


This Friday, October 19th is the last day to get your Hall of Honor nominations forms in. Judson ISD has so many people who have made a positive impact on their school and community over the years and we want to recognize them. The JISD Hall of Honor is that opportunity to honor those people who have put in the time and made the sacrifices to be not only great in their chosen field, but also influential in a way that shows leadership. These individuals make those around them better.

There are two categories in which to nominate someone. The JISD Athletic Hall of Honor and the JISD Civic Hall of Honor. These are individuals who have distinguished themselves athletically while a student in JISD and beyond or through their professional or personal contributions. 

There’s a simple online form to nominate someone and outline his or her qualifications for this honor. To start your submission just CLICK HERE. Again, the deadline is Friday, October 19th.

National School Lunch Week, Since 1962

It's National School Lunch Week and our campuses are serving up not only healthy meals but promoting the importance of good nutrition for effective learning. Dr. Ball was spotted at Woodlake Hills Middle School serving up lunch and Hopkins Elementary School's Administration was also hitting the serving line too. National School Lunch Week was created in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy to celebrate and spotlight the benefits of the National School Lunch Program. This week recognizes the importance of a healthy school lunch and what it does to fuel a productive learning day at school and beyond.  30 million students are served healthy lunches every school day...5 billion annually.

JISD and Healthy Schools: Your Flu Fighters

The 2017-2018 flu season was the worst in a decade with reports of some districts closing whole schools because of students and staff going down with it.  This year Judson ISD is teaming up with Healthy Schools to offer flu shots to our STUDENTS AND STAFF with $0 copay...that means it is free of cost.   STAFF just need to notify the campus where they want to go to get the shot and bring proof of insurance with them when they arrive. They'll be asked to fill out a short form as well at that time.  JISD STUDENTS can get the flu shot whether their family has insurance or not, but signup is encouraged so sufficient vaccine is made available for each clinic.  Children of JISD STAFF members (JISD students or not) can get the shot too, but they should be signed up and insurance card available to show on arrival. 

It's an effort to be proactive about the flu season, and while the shot is not fool-proof, statistics show it makes a difference.  Clinics will be set up at each of our campuses during a three day period in November, but we wanted to give you a heads up on the where and when now.  The links below show you the shot schedule for each campus and an online portal to sign up for the shot.  Being looking for more information and communication about this campaign in the coming days.

Meet Dr. Ball, Our Superintendent of Schools

She's only been working with JISD for a few months, but she's covered a lot of ground already.  Dr. Jeanette Ball has been getting to know staff, teachers, administrators, and especially parents and students, but it's a work in progress.  If you haven't had the chance to at least shake her hand, there will be a special event specifically to meet and talk with her. But it won't be just about meeting her, but there will be several student musical groups on hand to mark the occasion.  So you are invited to meet Dr. Ball and enjoy some great student talent.  It's all happening Tuesday, October 30th at 6 pm at Kitty Hawk Middle School.
