Board Recognitions For 1-9-2020

Pledge Leader: 

Emma Gamez is an exceptional 5th grader at Spring Meadows Elementary. She is always willing to help when needed.  One example is that Emma utilizes her morning breakfast time by assisting the kindergarten teachers with their students which has shown to be a big help. She is a student leader, sings in the choir, works on patrols, a spelling bee finalist, and is currently participating in the Battle of the Books all while maintaining a straight-A average! She is proud to be a  Spring Meadow Hawk!

As you likely remember, 2019 was a championship year for the Lady Rockets Basketball Team. Well, that is being followed up by a special UIL award. The UIL Sponsor Excellence Award was established in 1991 to recognize great teachers who play a special role in the lives of young people as directors, sponsors, and coaches. This year one of the recipients it chose was Head Basketball Coach Triva Corrales.

Selected for All-State Orchestra is Ian Fernandez. At regionals, he placed 2nd out of 58 qualifying violinists. Out of the almost 400 that auditioned at the state level, Ian placed 47th, easily being placed in a chair in one of the state ensembles. Congratulations to Ian.

Each year the district recognizes those teachers who embody the spirit and commitment that produces a level of educational excellence and just simply makes others around them better each day because of who they are and what they do. Each campus selected someone that fits this description for a special honor. So this evening we wanted to recognize this group of professionals we call Judson ISD Distinguished Educators.
