Judson Dental Interns Brightening Smiles

The Judson Dental Program provided help to the  "Brighter Smiles For Kids" agency that helps kids with dental work that otherwise wouldn't be done because of cost.  Judson students have been involved in the program for 4 years now, but it continues to be a great way to help others. Aside from gaining experience, the smiles that you get back from those kids that need the dental work, shows how much they appreciate it.  These dental interns are very skilled people and are making those skills work in a mission to help others that goes the extra mile.  Thank you.

  

Crestview ES in Local Publication

A well-rounded education is not just found in the classroom, but sometimes it means getting out and getting a little dirty.  Students at Crestview Elementary have been digging in the dirt and getting some coverage doing it.  The Live Oak Home Town News will be featuring in its March/April edition articles about gardening and planting as it gets its readers ready for spring.  Word got around that the students have a nice little vegetable garden each year and so they decided to come out and do a feature on how they prepare those gardens.  Makes you want to get out your hoe right?

Judson ROTC Leads MLK March

The Judson AFJROTC Honor Guard had the great privilege of heading up the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. March. Guard members that participated were Richard Barker, Robert Hester, De'von Council and Stephen Clark.  This march is recognized as the largest MLK march in the country with some 100,000 participants...including some city dignitaries. After the march, the Honor Guard presented the Colors that kicked off the official MLK program at Pittman-Sullivan Park.  This is the second year in a row that a Judson ISD school has led this annual parade.

   

Coach Camacho Wins 500th

One of the longest tenured coaches in the San Antonio area reached a milestone recently.  Coach Andrea Camacho won her 500th basketball game in San Marcos and added to her incredible coaching career that has spanned more than 20 years.  This victory just underscores the reputation she has built coaching girls basketball and the influential job she has done as the Wagner High School Girls Basketball Coach. Wagner High School Principal knows the impact she's had on her players and students saying, " even with all her accomplishments, she remains humble and focused on the students." We are all very proud of Coach Camacho.  Congratulations!
