Help For Food Bank? Patriot BPA Students On It!

The San Antonio Food Bank is an organization that does so much good for the entire south central Texas area. They always are open to help either in donations or just some muscle to organize and move items. The Business and Professionals of America chapter and members of the Principals of Business, Marketing and Finance at Veterans Memorial High School stepped up to the challenge and spent a day recently helping out. They used some of that youthful energy sorting, inspecting and packing boxes so the Food Bank is prepared for those who need it. In the end, they packed 9,540 pounds of food that will support some 7,000 families in the Bexar County and surrounding area.   BPA Vice President Sabrina Lagrimanta encourages others to help out and pay forward the blessings they have, "it was amazing to see how much food was donated and the work it takes to organize everything."

 

Veterans Memorial Athletes Lend STAAR Support

Patriot players Josh Walker, Dresden McIver, Imari Motley, Omari Frazier, and Joseph Richardson encourage Crestview students

All of us can find some inspiration and motivation from those we respect and look up to, so the football players and cheerleaders at Veterans Memorial High School thought it might help the younger kids.  They paid visits to Crestview and Rolling Meadows Elementary Schools to encourage students to do their best on the STAAR test.  We thank our high school athletes for taking the time to do this.

 

 

Thank You To Our Volunteers

Volunteers are a vital part of how things get done in school districts. They bring so much added value to what campuses can offer students.  They do it with a smile and the message of really caring for the kids and staff. JISD honors those super volunteers at our campuses each year to show appreciation for what they do and how they fill in the gaps.  The recent Volunteer Appreciation Awards was a wonderful event at Judson Early College Academy that profiled what these wonderful folks do on their campuses.  Thank you to each one of them.

Olympia ES Gets Big Thank You From Mayor

Olympia Elementary School has been part of the Mayor's Fitness Council for a number of years and the program just keeps getting better.  The Mayor's Fitness Council as part of the City of San Antonio and Metro Health showed their appreciation of the student involvement as ambassador's for the program.  In addition, it wouldn't continue to be as successful as it is if not for the great campus mentors this year. It's just one way the city encourages a healthier and more active San Antonio.  Congratulations Unicorns!
