The Judson Education Foundation always has something cooking to help raise money to make our teachers and especially our students better. You can follow all the events through the year now on Twitter as JEF brings people and resources together for teacher educational grants and scholarships for college bound students.

Health Fair: Shots, Physicals and More!

A great chance to get some of those back to school items off your list that have been nagging you.  Judson I.S.D. is offering a Health and Safety Fair this Saturday that help you take care of those shots or athletic physicals that maybe you've been putting off for a time that never came.  The time is here and it's easy.  In fact, along with all the great health information, the event will feature FREE immunizations and low cost athletic physicals for $25 dollars…cash only please.  Experts will also be there to conduct FREE dental, vision and body mass index screenings. 
So where is it?  At Judson High School Cafeteria on Saturday, August 4th between 9 am to 12 noon. Hope to see you there.

Parade of Pigs Auction To Help JEF

If you've walked into the Firstmark Credit Union on I-35 lately you may have noticed some rather dapper looking hams dressed to the hilt to catch your eye.  They are part of the "Parade of Pigs" auction during the month of August that will benefit the Judson Educational Foundation.
The 20 Piggy Banks are creations made by students in Wagner High School's ceramics class.  Parents and students are encouraged to bid on their favorite piggy bank, contribute any amount of money to any of the classy pigs or both.  Winning bidders will be notified in early September. That way the new Piggy Bank owners can pay for their new hog and pick it up.
The Piggy Banks are on display at the Firstmark Credit Union at 11530 IH-35 North San Antonio. FCU will present a check from the fundraiser to the Judson Educational Foundation at a Judson ISD Board Meeting later this fall.

Coronado Village Summer Parade

Coronado Village Elementary celebrated it's third year participating in the Texas 21st Century grant program with a neighborhood parade. Around 200 students attended this summer's after school program at Coronado Village that involved a number of activities that were both exciting and stretched the mind.  
The parade highlighted some of those programs like cooking, Karate and improving reading and math skills. The school also hosted several fun booths and exhibits after the parade featuring a number of the event's sponsors. The program will wrap up for the summer on July 31st, but the school says it's been such a success that it received another $130,000 in federal funding for reaching goals set by the grant's guidelines.
