Judson ISD

Entries for month: November 2017

Board Recognitions 11-16-17

The Pledge leader for the meeting was Asia Wilson, a 5th grader at Spring Meadows Elementary.  Asia is a role model for all students at Spring Meadows. She’s a shining star on the Student Leadership team and serves as an officer on the Safety Patrol.  Asia is an enthusiastic member of the Pep Squad and a songbird with the Choir. She also loves playing basketball.

 

Our first recognition comes from Candlewood Elementary School.  The Javits-Frasier Scholars Program spotlights those teachers who show passion and innovation in working with student populations that typically are under-represented in gifted education.  The National Association for Gifted Children chose 12 teachers nationwide for a special convention of the N-A-G-C this month in Charlotte, North Carolina and Candlewood Elementary’s Jennifer Silva was one of those teachers selected. This will be an opportunity for her to be recognized by the association for her work thus far, as well as a chance to further her skills in her area of expertise with other educators.

 

Our second recognition comes from the Energy Management Department.  You may know that since 2013 Judson ISD has been a participant in CPS Energy’s Demand Response program.  This is an incentive program started by CPS Energy that provides rebates and incentives to comercial customers for reducing energy consumption in the summer during peak usage periods.  This year JISD shrunk its load off the electricity grid by 5,823 kilowatts…that’s enough to supply power to 730 homes in San Antonio for a day.   That beat last year’s reduction by 6.5%.

As a result, CPS Energy’s Joe Jones and Jennifer Henriquez with Clear Result Energy Consultants are here to make two sizable check presentations. The first is to Energy Manager Mr. David Oehler and Energy Management Specialist Andy Jimenez for the Demand Response Program…the other tied to the Energy Solution Project will be presented by Ms. Henriquez to Maintenance Director Terry Yaklin for the energy efficient upgrades in a number of our schools and facilities. In 2013 when JISD committed to the Demand Response program we started out with a pilot Group of 4 schools…today that has grown to 25 campuses.

Converse Lion's Club Donates To Miller's Point

The Converse Lion's Club delivered free dictionaries to fourth grade students at Miller's Point Elementary. Students were excited to receive the dictionaries and participated in a quick game of Seek and Find with Coach Lugo. Thank you to Mr. Maples and his Lion's Club members for their generous donation.

Elolf Helps With Hurricane Harvey Relief

The students at Elolf Elementary and the Elolf community came together to support those effected by Hurricane Harvey. They collected an assortment of food and clothes and donated the items to the Red Cross and the Food Bank. Way to work together and help out!

Miller's Point Salutes Veterans

Letting our veterans know how much we appreciate their services is important and Miller's Point Elementary make sure they knew it with a special Veterans Day Program.  The school's Student Council, Kindness Crew and the 5th grade Performing Arts group put together a wonderful and uplifting program that included some great chow...a spaghetti supper!  Thank you veterans for serving.
