Judson ISD

Entries for month: January 2013

School Board Appreciation

January is School Board Appreciation Month and as a special thank you to the Judson ISD School Board, the board room was filled with all sorts of tokens of appreciation for what they do. The district's campuses showed their thanks in a number of ways like tasty goodies to eat, pictures, cards and trophies.  Many of the schools donated books to their campus library on behalf of their board representative or the board as a whole and then provided a card to inform them of the donation.  They were all nice expressions and remind us how important our school board is to this district and the important decisions they make for us all.



Regular Board Meeting For February Changed

Due to scheduling conflicts, the regular meeting of the Judson ISD School Board for the month of February that was set for Thursday the 21st has been rescheduled.  The meeting is now scheduled for Wednesday, February 20th.  The time for the meeting will remain 7pm and will also still be in the Board Room located at the Education Resource Center (ERC) located at 8205 Palisades Drive, Live Oak TX, 78233. All those planning to attend should take note of this change.

Judson HS Student Big Scholarship Winner

The Judson ISD School Board took a few moments in their regular board meeting to congratulate Judson High School student Ryan Rogers who won a huge scholarship.  Ryan was selected to receive the 2013-2014 Texas Music Educators Association Bill Cormack Undergraduate Scholarship.  He was chosen from an elite group of more than 100 other students across the state. The scholarship is valued at $15,000 and he will use it to study music education with a concentration on Piano with a Choral emphasis at Trinity University. Ryan is the son of Richard and Patty Rogers. Kay Sherrill is Ryan's Choral Director at Judson HS. 


January Board Meeting Pledge Reader

The January pledge reader for the regular School Board Meeting on January 17th was Jamaika Byron. Jamaika is an outstanding student both academically and personally. She volunteers in the school library, is in student council and is a student in the TAG program. She is also on the "A/B" Honor Roll and has shown herself to be a great asset to her fellow students especially in student council.  Jamaika is the daughter of Jozul Byron and Rebecca Torres.  

Retiring Hopkins ES Administrator Honored

It's one thing to retire from teaching and just look forward to taking it easy, but it's quite another to have an official proclamation written in your name.  Melinda Reyna retired from Hopkins Elementary School after 28 years of teaching and serving as an Assistant Principal.  To honor her entire career of work at the school, Kirby Mayor Tim Wilson declared January 18, 2013 as official Melinda Reyna Day in the City of Kirby.  Mayor Wilson, you see, went to Hopkins back in the day and he and Mrs. Reyna reminisced about his school days...including some tales about him and his brother who was a student of hers.
