Local VFW Recognizes Copperfield Efforts

Copperfield Elementary School is one of the JISD campuses that is home to a significant number of military-connected students. That means there are some intentional efforts to encourage those who serve our country in the armed forces. Recently, Copperfield teacher Sabrina Richmond was recognized by the Veterans of Foreign Wars for her leadership in supporting veterans and their families through correspondence and artwork that the kids created specifically for those who serve.  It was expressed to Ms. Richmond at a special awards banquet how much those kinds of notes and hand-drawn pictures mean to them. She was presented with a special certificate of commendation from the VFW for her work.  We appreciate Ms. Richmond for being such an effective liaison. 

Kitty Hawk SkillsUSA Students Flying High

The SkillsUSA students from Kitty Hawk have been busy with competition and community projects. They made a trip to Louisville, KY again for the National Conference to compete in parliamentary procedures competition...something they have done very well in over the past several years. They again came out as National Champions for the Opening and Closing Ceremony competition. A big congratulations to the team along with Mr. Acevedo and Ms. Herrera.  


Along with that success, many of these students have been busy participating in a community service project that donated bicycles to the local Boys and Girls Club. This group is on a ROLL!



Sailing With Marimbas, A Musical Blast!

JISD's Miller's Point Elementary hosted a sensational musical performance called Sailing With Marimbas. These students are part of the school's Dual Language program. Bonnie is well known for getting students to be musical and pretty quickly...because they enjoy it so much. These students had only been playing a few weeks and they sounded wonderful...and as you can see they're having a blast!



Judson Auto Tech Students Wow Harley Davidson

Judson Student Auto Tech Team with Mr. Salinas and H.D. Representatives Randy Pennington and Lance Demming

Harley Davidson has been around a long time and they know motorcycles...REALLY know motorcycles. They recently recognized a team of Judson High School students from the Auto Technician Program for this super cool bike they built with the supervision of their instructor Sergio Salinas. They were one of six teams selected in a contest called Battle of the Kings placing in the Chop Classification. Seniors Jacob Edwards, Brendon Klotz, and Deontae Ferguson teamed up with junior Caleb Munoz to build this bike. Their creation placed in a "people's choice" stage of the contest that drew votes from all over. Now the bike moves from the virtual contest to compete in a National Contest in July in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.   


The prize for getting to this level is a $2,000 voucher from Harley Davidson for a set of SnapOn tools and five motorcycle driving lessons. How cool is that! What a great experience these students are getting. Mr. Salinas has really worked with them well. Congratulations and good luck
