District Food Drive A Success

The JISD School Health Advisory Council partnered with Blessed Angels and JISD campuses by hosting a District Food Drive to help connect hungry families in our community to healthy and nutritious food. The Food drive had two competitions, the Best Dressed Love Bin (most creatively decorated bin) & the Completely Filled With Love Bin (bin with most donated items). The Best Dressed Love Bin award went to Kirby Middle School with Paschall Elementary finishing as the runner–up.

Hall of Honor Winners

One of the big moments of the Judson Education Foundation each year is the formal induction of the members of the Judson ISD Hall of Honor.  There are two ways a person can enter the Hall…as a member of the Civic Hall or Athletic Hall.  In 2018 we saw two inductees each go into both of these honored groups. To find out who made it this year open up your email with the subject line: JISD Hall of Honor…Who Made It?  and read the January Judson Post. The Judson Post is sent out every month by the Communications Department from the email address media@judsonisd.org

JISD Military Families Enjoy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Holidays can often present a challenge for military families who have loved ones stationed far from home. For the 1st, 2nd and some three or more times, many of our J.I.S.D. military community celebrated Thanksgiving without their families. While some were able to reunite around the dinner table to celebrate Thanksgiving, many of them were serving on a Permanent Change of Assignment (PCS), Temporary Duty (TDY), deployments or overseas in combat and non-combat operations.

Three organizations stepped in to help and went beyond just good wishes for the holidays. They put their boots-on-the-ground and took action by providing a little extra comfort for the families during this time of the year. San Antonio Food Bank, Rackspace and Now Word Missions Ministries Outreach Project provided Judson ISD military-connected and numerous civilian families with special Thanksgiving baskets that included a frozen turkey, holiday fixings and fresh produce to help stretch the budget. A tremendous thank you to Rackspace & the San Antonio Food Bank for their "Fill A Box, Feed A Family" project and Now Word Missions Ministry for their continued support in its "O'Give Thanks" program.
