Recently, the Judson Theatre Department competed at Reagan High School's Texas Forensics Tournament of Champions. The students did a fantastic job, receiving multiple awards in the competition. They also walked away with Sweepstakes for the first time ever in the tournament as well as having four state qualifiers and four national bids overall. Great job!
In recognition of National Unity Day on October 19th, Miller's Point Elementary School showed their spirit by a "Kindness Begins With Me" kickoff. The whole student body wore their kindness t-shirts to form a giant heart. Daily kindness lessons are a part of the day's instruction and each Thursday students and staff remind each other of the kindness state of mind by wearing their kindness t-shirt. Miller's Point is spreading kindness one action at a time.
Members of the Judson High School Criminal Justice Student Association are training and practicing to compete in the upcoming Texas High School Mock Trial competition. For the last five years, the Judson CJSA members have been participating in this big event and it is a great experience for those interested in how the legal system works and the process of a real court trial.
One of the coolest parts of this program at Judson is the partnership it has with St. Mary's University School of Law. Mr. Sheppard, the Dean of the School of Law, allows our students to use the StMU moot court room every Thursday to practice and get the feel of being in a court room. That will be important experience when they get to attend a Mock Trial clinic in Dallas in November. It'll really count when the Regional Competition comes around in January...That will be held in downtown San Antonio at the Bexar County Court House.
It's great practice and a wonderful opportunity to learn the process of a court room... beyond what we may see in the movies or on TV.
A number of the Key Club members from Judson Early College Academy spent a Saturday recently to make a difference in their corner of the world. They get out and do what they can to twice a month in cleaning up the community. It's called "Adopt A Spot and they joined forces with Psi Alpha Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., one of the city's leading fraternal nonprofit organizations, to get their "spot" spic and span. As the group fanned out and began their work, they were greeted by local business owners and local residents who were pleased see them out. The JECA Key Club is led by its officers and club sponsor Coach J. Coleman who have decided that one of their goals this school year will be to maintain a positive presence in the community and grow as student leaders.
Key Club is an international student-led organization which provides its members with ways to offer service, build character and develop leadership.
