JISD Art Students "Chalk It Up"

Each year Artpace sponsors a unique art event called the "Chalk It Up Festival." It's a street level gallery of chalk artwork that is truly amazing.  Students from Judson High School, Wagner High School and Woodlake Hills Middle School got on their hands and knees on historic Houston Street to create these masterpieces. Also the community got in the action in a Freestyle area to create a mural the size of a city block...now that's cool!  Congratulations to all the students that took their talent to the ground level for everyone to enjoy.  Chalk It Up To Art!!

Copperfield Students Give TV Crew A Tour

Copperfield Elementary School will soon be formally dedicated with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. As a preview to the school's upcoming ceremony, KSAT-TV came out to the school to do a profile on the campus and how it will serve students in this part of the district.  Student tour guides Ciera Williams and Isaac Fernandez gave the TV crew all the information they needed and even were the subject of TV interviews.  They had a lot of fun and the news media got a great story on what's happening in Judson ISD.


Paschall Students Ask Question of TV Weatherman

The weather is one of those fascinating topics that amaze many people and it seems like the toughest weather questions come from kids. Students at Paschall Elementary School had some great ones for KSAT Meteorologist Justin Horne.  A camera crew came out to the school to record their questions for him and he'll answer them on the air during the upcoming morning weekend newscasts 9/13-9/14.  Questions like...have you ever messed up live on the air during a weathercast and what did you do?  Or how about what are the steps you take to be a meteorologist? ...what makes fog disappear?  All the kids had great questions.  A big thank you to Principal Anthony Willard and of course Ms. Weaver for letting them invade her class with a camera. 

Students who were recorded for the broadcast were:

Malachi Wilkins
Cristian Deleon
Imajyn Ruiz
Justin Mosqueda
Amity Navarro
Ismael Sandoval
Dajon Bratton




Marching In The Summer Heat--On TV

The summer heat in San Antonio can be brutal and every precaution has to be taken when being active.  That means football practices and band rehearsals outdoors demand safety allowances like water breaks, time in the shade and just plain rest from time to time. This was the subject of a TV news segment on FOX 29 and WOAI-TV recently with high school athletic and band groups out getting ready for the upcoming football season.  The TV crew came out to Judson High School as Band Director Jeffery Keys and Assistant Band Director Austin Clements were out with the Rocket Marching Band during a morning rehearsal working on their halftime show for the first game. Practice includes plenty of water breaks and a chance to cool off at designated times and whenever someone feels like they need a break. As simple as it sounds, sometimes we forget to take breaks or drink water on our own and that can lead to trouble.  Several of the band members including Larissa and Danielle Palacios, Tatyana Gonzalez and Drum Major Bernardo Castellanos talked on camera about their own experiences and how they deal with the heat.  Practice may be a bit rough now, but it'll pay off as the weather cools off and the football season heats up.
