JISD's Art Extravaganza: Color, Performance & Music

It is always a crowd pleaser every year.  The 2016 Judson ISD Art Extravaganza featured thousands of exhibit from students across the grade levels.  It is truly amazing the artistic talents these students have inside them and can express through so many mediums of art.  This event at Rollling Oaks Mall has gotten bigger every year with crowds at times walking almost shoulder to shoulder through the mall walkways filled with art exhibits.  An then in the evening are the performances, both musical and dance that were some of the biggest draws.  At it's peak, there was an estimated 6,000-7,000 extra people in the mall to see the artwork and performances that evening. We want to thank all the volunteers, and others that made this event happen.  Art is so important for the total student and JISD is proud to organize this each year.

Prize Parade, Helping Teachers In The Cla$$room

The Judson Education Foundation is always looking for ways to help teachers and students with grants and scholarships. Recently it went on its yearly Prize Parade to award teacher grants to innovative teachers who are looking for ways to make their instruction more engaging and relevant to students.  You know when they are on your campus just by the mere beat of the drumline that comes rumbling through the hallways heralding their arrival and the bearing of some wonderful grants to help out.  This year JEF awarded more than $37,000 in teacher grants to 28 teachers spread across 12 campuses.  We congratulate all of these teachers and we hope these resources will help as they plan and prepare for next year.

Jaguar Jazz Band Hits The Road For A Tour

The Judson Middle School Jaguar band program is continuing to grow in size and in the kind of music they're studying and performing. Their performances have allowed them to book a number of other gigs over the last several weeks.  First, there was the performance at the JISD Honorary Volunteer Banquet at JECA where they entertained before the ceremony started. That was in front of a lot of district officials and they did a wonderful job.  Then they came back to their home campus to perform for  Copperfield and Converse Elementary School students who will be going into 6th grade next year. Then they rounded out their tour at Judson High School where they performed at the Performing Arts Center in the foyer as those attending the annual JHS Percussion and Jazz Concert were filing in to find their seats.  Each stop was a great experience in performing and working together as a musical team.
