Kirby MS Students Honor Fallen Veterans

To see gratitude demonstrated to our fallen heroes from students is a great lesson for all of us. Back in December, approximately 70 young ladies from the Kirby Athletic Program participated in the Wreaths Across America Program. Students from the 7th, 8th and Pre-Athletics program participated in this yearly Community Service Project. These young ladies laid wreaths on the graves of our veterans buried at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery.

JISD Student Gets TV Time As Video Contestant

The BexarFest Multimedia Festival is a contest that encourages San Antonio-area students to learn more about communications and their community by telling the stories that change lives. It engages students with nonprofit organizations to produce videos that tell that group's story in a three-minute video.  For the organization, it allows them to get a high-quality product that it can use for marketing and informational purposes, while the students get real-world experience in the field of video production and working with a client.  Judson Early College Academy student Logan Roelofs was featured on KENS 5's Good Day SA recently for his participation in the event.  He appeared with BexarFest Executive Director Randy Lankford to explain what the event is all about and the fun students have with it.  You can take a look at the segment by clicking on the link below and check out the video entry from Logan and the JECA team.

JECA's Seven Star Celebration

Distinctions are one of the ways that the Texas Education Agency shows a measure of excellence in instruction and student performance. At the secondary level, there are seven possible distinctions that a school can achieve. Judson Early College Academy continues its history of academic excellence and again achieve seven out of seven possible academic distinctions.  That's a fantastic achievement considering those areas include ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, Academic Growth, Closing Performance Gaps, and Post Secondary Readiness. JECA is in a relatively small group of campuses across the state that have earned all these distinctions and deserves recognition.  Congratulations to Dr. Juarez and her staff on this award of achievement.
