Veterans Memorial ROTC Gets Air Time

Reporter/Anchor David Sears chats with ROTC students Caraline Mitchell and Kayla De La Rosa

KSAT-TV came out to visit Veterans Memorial recently to put the spotlight on the school's ROTC program.  It's a young program, as most things are at this newest high school, but it is growing and making an impact.  The story will air Friday as a sidebar story leading up to this week's Patriot vs. Highlands Owls football game.  As a lead-in to the game, the telecast typically shows some academic feature that spotlights something about each school.  The crew spoke to two students and recorded video of a weekly inspection.  Be looking for it on KSAT-TV.  

Week 6: T-Birds and Eagles, Patriots and Owls

All three high schools came out of week 5 looking awesome, but with all the lopsided victories, the challenge is to stay challenged. There will be times further down the road where these teams will need to dig down deep to pull through for a victory.  So far, the games are great opportunities for other players to get some valuable experience and playing time that will come in handy late in the year. Resting starters when scores get like that is also beneficial.  This week, Wagner takes on Brackenridge and Veterans Memorial will meet Highlands. The Judson Rockets have a bye this week.   Let's keep cheering these players on to do their best one game at a time!

Sending Out An S.O.S., At Hopkins

S.O.S. Day is a special day at Hopkins that teachers prepare for every six weeks that features special hands-on experiments for students.  Rotations of students among grade levels offer everyone a chance to explore something different all day long.  The cool thing is...they're experiments that support the concepts the students have been studying the last six weeks.  This time around, they centered on matter...whether that's solids, liquids, or gas and how they can change properties. 

 

The kids like it so much it's increased attendance on those days...now that sounds like they're having fun. 

The Metzger Family Has Its Night!

Sometimes it's just good to set aside some time to chat and let people ask questions to get to know people and what their needs are. That's what Metzger Middle School did recently with their Open House and Family Night.  Parents and students were invited to hear a quick presentation on Title I impact and what that means to students and the resources at the school.    

 

Week 5: Rattlers, Bears, and Eagles On Menu

It's week five in the high school football regular season and district play continues. All three schools are doing well.  Judson and Wagner are both undefeated in district play and are showing they have some high-octane offenses.  Veterans Memorial at 2-2 overall is also showing it will likely make some noise when playoff spots are decided.  Judson travels to San Marcos to meet up with the Rattlers...Wagner and Veterans are at Rutledge taking on Edison and Brackenridge respectively.  Let's keep the "Big-Mo" going and support our teams.
