The Judson ISD Department of Special Programs team concluded as the anchor with “Purple UP”. Purple Up stretched throughout our nation, the Blue Star Families Literacy Initiative, JISD departments and campuses, Joint Based San Antonio military installation schools, KENS 5 TV, San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, UTSA, Texas A&M and our neighboring school districts with turning San Antonio purple in commemoration of “Month of the Military Child”.

April is designated as the Month of the Military Child, recognizing and honoring the commitment, contribution and sacrifices that military-connected students experience in their family life. Our military-connected students are faced with unique challenges like frequent moves or just being separated from one or both parents who are deployed for long periods of time. They move an average of 10 times while growing up and approximately 2 million have experienced parental deployment since 9/11. Military-connected kids deserve our respect that comes with that knowledge of the sacrifices that are made for the safety and freedoms we all enjoy.


Judson Baseball Standout Picks School

If you have even casually checked out the high school baseball box scores over the last couple of years, the name Holiday should be familiar. Caimyn Holiday has been one of the most versatile baseball players to come out of Judson in a long time.  He has excelled in virtually any position he's assigned on the field and has shown that his bat speaks for itself as well.  In a recent signing ceremony at Judson High School, Caimyn signed his intent to attend and play baseball at Mary Hardin Baylor University next year.  He led the Rockets to a 15-8 record, 8-6 in district play and finished the season batting .351 with 3 home runs, 15 RBIs, and 21 runs scored.  He swiped 12 bases and as a pitcher, he went 7-1 with an ERA of 2.73 with 46 strikeouts...including a no-hitter against Roosevelt.  


He will take his talent, work ethic and leadership to Belton where MHBU is located and use it to further his education.  Caimyn is also a great student, ranked in the top 6% of his class. He also earned Honorable Mention All-State Choir 2016-17. He wants to pursue a degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in sports broadcast journalism.  He is the son of Laurie and Tony Holiday. Good luck to this young man as he takes his Rocket Pride to the next level.

Wagner Fashion Students Design For A Great Cause


Wagner High School, along with 10 other high schools across San Antonio, competed in the local FashionABLE Fashion Show. This show, sponsored by SpinaBifida TX, helps partner high school fashion design students with local children with physical and mental disabilities. The high school designers learn clothing adaptability, interview skills and money management as they work with a $30.00 budget to create a custom made garment for their new clients. This was Wagner’s 4th year participating in the FashionABLE program and although they did not come home with any medals/awards this year they currently hold the record for the first and only school to win Best In Show two years in a row for 2016 & 2017. They plan to learn from this year and return again strong in next year. Most important though are the smiles on the children's faces as they wear their new outfits.
