Olympia's First Fall Picnic

Olympia Elementary hosted its first inaugural Fall Picnic for students and parents. What a wonderful way to get outside and enjoy this nice, cool weather. Also, a great way to get parents involved with the school.

Hopkins Hispanic Heritage Celebration

The families at Hopkins Elementary got together to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a dinner and dance. Families brought food from their native country to share their cultural heritage. They learned about the variety of foods served around the world from Latin American countries. Fun, food, and dancing was shared by everyone.

Jets Soar In Writing Competition

Miller's Point Elementary held their first nine-week's writing competition. Kindergarten through Fifth grade student's had to respond to the given prompt. The goal is to develop and encourage students to explore writing. Winners of the contest were recognized and treated to a special lunch from McDonald’s. Congratulations to the wonderful Jet writers!

Fall Football Night: Judson-Clemens, Wagner-NB

Grab your jacket and bring some money for hot chocolate or coffee because a fresh cold front will be barreling in for this Friday night's matchups and you'll want to enjoy the games. Judson is coming off the Hammer bowl victory to take on a dangerous Clemens team at Lehnhoff Stadium that is 4-0 in district play and 7-0 overall.  Meanwhile, Wagner showed some real ability and spark hanging with Judson for the first half of the Hammer bowl.  They are looking to leverage some of that as they take on New Braunfels at Rutledge Stadium.  Enjoy a chilly, crisp fall evening supporting our teams as they try to finish strong.
