Wagner High School students from Mr. Rodriguez’s AP Biology II and Biology class participated in the Nobelity Project in Bastrop, Texas. The project was funded to help restore the land that was devastated by the forest fires of 2011 and 2015. The students learned firsthand about the local and global impact man has on the environment, as well as ecological succession and how the diversity of species can change over time. The students worked with Park Rangers and board members from the Arbor Day Foundation to help plant over 1,500 drought tolerant Loblolly pines at Bastrop State Park.
The Converse Elementary Honor Student Council and families with sponsor, DeeDee Haralson and teacher Dixie Gonzales, volunteered at The Kitchen Table in New Braunfels. The Kitchen Table is a client choice pantry in partnership with the San Antonio Food Bank. They were honored to serve the community with this service project.
Many of the JISD family...especially those at the Rolling Meadows Elementary School campus remember Librarian Dawn Mulder. She was a warm and dynamic librarian that showed her love for reading to students over and over again. That giving continued over the holidays. We wanted to share some pictures that the Communications Department just got that showed a special display of giving beyond this life from the Mulder family. Dawn's husband Steve along with two of their daughters visited Rolling Meadows before the holidays and gave books to each student to take home.
Dawn Mulder passed away suddenly in September...she is greatly missed.
