Judson ISD

Board Recognitions 11-16-17

The Pledge leader for the meeting was Asia Wilson, a 5th grader at Spring Meadows Elementary.  Asia is a role model for all students at Spring Meadows. She’s a shining star on the Student Leadership team and serves as an officer on the Safety Patrol.  Asia is an enthusiastic member of the Pep Squad and a songbird with the Choir. She also loves playing basketball.

 

Our first recognition comes from Candlewood Elementary School.  The Javits-Frasier Scholars Program spotlights those teachers who show passion and innovation in working with student populations that typically are under-represented in gifted education.  The National Association for Gifted Children chose 12 teachers nationwide for a special convention of the N-A-G-C this month in Charlotte, North Carolina and Candlewood Elementary’s Jennifer Silva was one of those teachers selected. This will be an opportunity for her to be recognized by the association for her work thus far, as well as a chance to further her skills in her area of expertise with other educators.

 

Our second recognition comes from the Energy Management Department.  You may know that since 2013 Judson ISD has been a participant in CPS Energy’s Demand Response program.  This is an incentive program started by CPS Energy that provides rebates and incentives to comercial customers for reducing energy consumption in the summer during peak usage periods.  This year JISD shrunk its load off the electricity grid by 5,823 kilowatts…that’s enough to supply power to 730 homes in San Antonio for a day.   That beat last year’s reduction by 6.5%.

As a result, CPS Energy’s Joe Jones and Jennifer Henriquez with Clear Result Energy Consultants are here to make two sizable check presentations. The first is to Energy Manager Mr. David Oehler and Energy Management Specialist Andy Jimenez for the Demand Response Program…the other tied to the Energy Solution Project will be presented by Ms. Henriquez to Maintenance Director Terry Yaklin for the energy efficient upgrades in a number of our schools and facilities. In 2013 when JISD committed to the Demand Response program we started out with a pilot Group of 4 schools…today that has grown to 25 campuses.
