Dig It Day At Hartman ES

It's spring time and everyone has got the fever to plant something.  The Hartman Elementary School Student Council came in on a Saturday to build a school garden. This is one that each grade level will have a section to care for and watch grow.  This project is part of their Spurs Team Up Challenge...in fact, if you notice the garden's shape, it's not a horse shoe, but a SPUR. Congratulations everyone for working so hard on it and we are looking for plenty of growth over the next few weeks. 




Metzger FCCLA Students At McDonald House

Metzger Middle School FCCLA students recently paid a visit to the Ronald McDonald House.  The field trip was a community service outreach to the facility which is a type of home away from home for the families of children who are undergoing extensive treatment at local hospitals. They showed true Judson ISD and Metzger Pride in the way they served families during their time there.  Students came away with a new understanding of what families go through in these trying situations and their service, in the end, was also a blessing that came back to them.   



JECA Shows Muscle For Student

Judson Early College Academy is tight knit group...just about everyone knows everyone.  The staff at JECA came out in support of one of their students recently for the Muscular Dystrophy Association's annual Muscle Walk.  The school had a great group who raised more than $1,500 for MDA through the generous support of our community, students and staff.  In the end, because of their efforts the school was also awarded $250 from Whataburger's school team challenge.

A Thing Of Beauty At Hopkins ES

It's springtime and the weather is getting warmer. That means landscape is beginning to green up and it's the perfect time to spruce up around the place.  Hopkins Elementary School really got into it with some help from the Beautify San Antonio Association.  The group awarded a $1,500 grant to give the campus some real curb appeal.  The grant, along with some real sweat equity from parents, students and staff, made the school more colorful and ready for spring.  They pulled weeds, planted flowers and laid down mulch to give the place a landscaped look.  The folks from Beautify San Antonio came out to see the end result and gave the school a sign and certificate in recognition for all the hard work.  




Dental and CNA Interns Make Doctor House Call

It's with great appreciation that professionals in the working world take time to give our students a taste of what they do and how to get there.  It was recently National Doctor's Day and Dr. Chen, a member of the UT Health Science Center's School of Medicine faculty hosted our dental and CNA (certified nursing assistant) interns to talk to them about what he does as a doctor and a teacher.  He also talked candidly about how to successfully work toward a career in medicine and what journey he took. We genuinely appreciate people like Dr. Chen who share with others his experience and his encouragement.
