JISD Yam Drive: Yammin' It Up For Jimenez Dinner

Each year the Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner feeds tens of thousands of citizens who might not otherwise have a place to go for a Thanksgiving meal.  Part of that meal depends on canned yams to make it that traditional meal that so many folks love. JISD each year launches a Yam Drive among all the campuses with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies being awarded.  It's a way of getting kids involved in giving to others and a great community opportunity at each campus.  The JISD Police Department heads up this drive each year and will be awarding the trophies after the November 15th deadline. 

JISD Police Chief Among 1st Responders A Year Ago

Post-landfall Harvey that hit the Texas coast with 130+ mph winds

When Hurricane Harvey struck the Texas coast in August of 2017, it devastated the area with 130 mph winds and torrential rains that ended up dumping catastrophic floods on southeast Texas.  On their own time, members of the JISD police department, including Chief Teresa Ramon, offered a helping hand to some 4,000 people at Port Aransas that lost their homes. A year later, in a ceremony honoring those who were the first to help and the victims themselves, a familiar face showed up there representing JISD...see if you can spot Chief.  CLICK HERE

Caring is all a part of Judson ISD...not just for our own, but those impacted by such disasters in other parts of our great state. 

Rutledge Stadium Clear Bag Policy

As football season approaches, we wanted to remind everyone of the clear bag policy at Rutledge Stadium.  There will be a lot of events during the course of the year and we would like to avoid inconveniencing fans coming to the stadium with bags that are not allowed. Backpacks will not be allowed due to their size, even if they are clear.  Keep in mind this only for Rutledge Stadium.  We appreciate your understanding and patience as we try to make for a safer environment.

Yam Drive Shows JISD Giving Spirit

Each year the JISD Police Department orchestrates a district wide canned yam drive and this year it was a spectacular success.  More than 6,000 cans of yams were collected. This was started years ago as a way to help out the annual Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner that is hosted to feed more than 25,000 people who are elderly or those in need.  The contest involved JISD schools, and several of the district's departments.  This year the contest had a new winner! Check out all the generosity below...more pictures to come.

1st place: Converse ES with 2,409 canned yams

2nd place: Elolf ES with 1,642 canned yams

3rd place: Olympia ES with 1,249 canned yams

Congratulations and thank you everyone!

Chief Ramon Helps Out At Port A.

If you talk to JISD Police Chief Teresa Ramon for very long, you know that the Texas coast means a lot to her...especially Port Aransas.  It's a favorite R & R spot...a place to break away from all the police work she does.  When Harvey hit the coast, Chief went to the coast along with other members of the HAPCOA (Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association) and VFW Posts from Universal City and Lytle. Hauling and unloading supplies that families in the area were really needing was the mission at hand.  They delivered.    

A big thanks goes out to Chief Ramon and everyone who helped out representing the open hearts that want to help those who have lost so much.
