Judson Journal: New Look, New Experience!

The Judson Journal has been around for a number of years...as a paper publication first, and going electronic a few years back.  But as you can see, the look now is totally different and the content is deeper in personal profiles and relevant information.  In an effort to make this longstanding publication easier to access, read, and share, the JISD Communications Department has gone to different editorial and publishing platforms.  We think it will help the development process of each issue as well help us to know what content readers like you find most interesting. 

Above all, we want the experience you have with it to be more engaging and interactive.  We hope you'll enjoy finding out more about the students and staff of the Judson ISD family through the retooled Judson Journal!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
