The construction on the new high school on Evans Road continues to roll on by leaps and bounds. Progress has surpassed 70 percent of the initial opening phase. Assistant Superintendent of Operations Rob Fields and School Principal Christina Clark have been busy checking on the building process and working on the school name and mascot process. The school board now is in possession of all the name suggestions and will soon meet to make that decision, likely in a special meeting, so be looking for that.
Meanwhile, the new school has been getting some good media attention. Local Community News came out to do a story with Ms. Clark as the principal and what goes into organizing a whole new school. As a part of the article, the newspaper sent out a photographer to take some shots of her for the piece which should go out in its September 2015 issue.
To give you a feel of how the construction is going take a look at these aerials...the excitement is building!!
The Judson Learning Academy recently threw open its doors to parents and students to get to know teachers and staff a little better. In fact, it was their yearly Open House. JLA is a unique school housed at Rolling Oaks Mall in cooperation with the Simon Youth Foundation that offers an alternative route for that high school diploma. It's a great option for many students and the enrollment continues to be strong each year. We want to wish them a great year with Principal Anthony Willard and his staff.
We just finished off our first week of school and continue to get into a groove with the second. But for many, it's still kind of new...especially for some of the new students and parents. The folks over at Park Village Elementary School wanted to take a moment to make all students and parents welcome and show their commitment to their kids this school year.

The first week of high school football was an exciting one for Judson ISD. It showed that both schools are fielding some great talent and will make some serious noise in this year's regular season and beyond. Judson pulled out a squeaker against Pflugerville Hendrickson 12-9 while Wagner came up short on a high scoring contest against Stevens 30-26. This week both schools continue their non-district schedule as Judson hits the road for a Thursday night game at Farris Stadium to take on Brandeis who lost to Johnson last week, while Wagner is at home Friday night at Rutledge Stadium to take on Churchill who previously beat Clark handily. With the Judson game on Thursday, ticket sales for that game begin on Tuesday. Support our T-Birds and Rockets!!
The Judson Rockets hope to improve on their State Semi-Final season last year as Coach Sean McAuliffe begins his second year at the helm. They start the regular season at home at Rutledge against Pflugerville Hendrickson. Meanwhile, Wagner Head Football Coach Charles Bruce (named Head Coach for East All-Star Football Game) will take his Thunderbird team on the road to Gustafson Stadium to take on Stevens High School. Let's start off the season right by being there and supporting our schools and our kids.
