She is one of the top girls basketball players in the state of Texas and she's been putting on a clinic for years at Wagner High School. Amber Ramirez is playing out her senior to see how far her team can go, but she is preparing for life after high school. She has signed to play basketball for Texas Christian University next year. Amber could have played almost anywhere with interest the last couple of years coming from all over the country...including some perennial powers. She's chose a great school in TCU...going to be a Horned Frog! We congratulate Amber, her family and Coach Camacho on the news.
Encouragement is an awesome gift you can give someone...especially if that someone has made sacrifices for the greater good. Students from Mrs. Wicker's and Mrs. Tatsch's 4th grade classes at Rolling Meadows Elementary connected with the National Defense Transportation Association San Antonio Chapter's Young Leaders Committee for a special project. The students decorated gift bags with inspirational messages for wounded warriors. These bags will be filled and given to soldiers at a breakfast sponsored by the association. Thank you RME students...your gift can lift someone's spirit.

The JISD Police Department is part of the district that helps insure a safe learning environment for students...if you don't have that, there's not much learning that's going to happen. The Metzger Middle School FCCLA members wanted to tell JISD Police thank you for all the hard work and long hours they put in to make our campuses safe. They gave each police officer a pumpkin pie to show their appreciation. With each pie came a note of gratitude from these students...they were hand written with personal thoughts of thanksgiving Here are couple of their messages.
"We don't appreciate you-all as much as we should, but know that we are thankful."
"Thank you for all of your help in protecting our town and school."

The Google Expeditions Pioneer Program visited select schools recently and two of their stops were at Rolling Meadows and Spring Meadows Elementary Schools. The program brings engaging 3-D virtual reality journeys to students...journeys that take them to places like the Great Coral Reef, the moon and ancient Roman ruins. It happens through simple but realistic cardboard virtual reality viewers. It brings a new meaning to a school field trip. We appreciate Google for stopping by and fanning the flames of curiosity and adventure for our kids.
