Miller's Point Helps Houston ISD

Miller's Point Elementary collected school supplies for students affected by Hurricane Harvey. Staff members and volunteers traveled to Dogan Elementary School in Houston ISD and presented Principal Sandra Menuxeiro the donations. Volunteers also assisted Dogan Elementary staff with preparing the school for its first day. Thank you to the students and families who donated supplies and to our business partners for their support. Thank you to Kitty Hawk Middle School, Masters Elementary and Elolf Elementary for also participating in the supply drive! Surplus donations will be forwarded to other campuses that are in need of supplies. Business Partners that assisted with donations: Chuys (Forum) donated lunch for the Dogan Elementary staff members; Forum Hair and Nail donated school supplies; SAMS club donated water and soda for the staff; Learning Zone on Pat Booker donated supplies for staff to complete their rooms and Office Depot assisted with the purchasing of school supplies for students. It was a true JISD team effort. View Slideshow Here!

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.

Judson Girl Athletes Step Up For Food Bank

The female student athletes at Judson High School are making a difference outside the arena of sports through a campaign called MAD.  It stands for Making A Difference! Recently Judson coaches  took 40 Lady Rockets to the San Antonio Food Bank to support the Food Bank's September Hunger Action Month.  And there was definitely a lot of ACTION.  These students helped package 23,667 lbs. of food.  In the end that will provide more than 16,000 meals.  

Hats off to these girls for taking the time out of their weekend to make a difference and helping others.  



A Heads Up On Game Time And An Opportunity!

The big season opener between Judson and Austin Lake Travis will be televised from Rutledge Stadium on FoxSports' first ever Texas Football Days.  The broadcast is a doubleheader of high school football. It starts off with a 3A matchup between Shallowater vs. Idalou (Lubbock area) at 6 pm and then the Judson vs. Austin Lake Travis game slated for 8:30 pm.  Because of how these sports telecasts work, please keep in mind that the start of our game could be delayed because of the finish time of the first game.  So while our kickoff time is set for 8:30 pm, reality could see it possibly delayed as late as maybe 9 pm depending on when the TV coverage of the first game wraps up.  Here's a link to the FoxSports website with details on the games CLICK HERE

Nevertheless it will be a great match up. While this is a great event, we want to keep in perspective too seeing all the tragedy and loss the last several days with Hurricane Harvey's landfall. There will be folks at Rutledge Stadium that will be accepting monetary donations to help hurricane victims on behalf of the Texas High School Coaches Association's Benevolence Fund. The San Antonio area narrowly missed a tragic situation that we are seeing unfold to those in Harvey's path.  In thankfulness of being spared, we can all show our gratitude by helping out others.  It's a great opportunity to show how Texans help each other!
