Masters Elementary Gets Into The 50s!

Masters Elementary celebrated the 50th day of school with an ‘ol style Sock Hop! From The Pink Ladies and poodle skirts to leather jackets and loafers, students and staff dressed up like it was 1950. There was even a hallway sock hop where everyone did the Twist, Bop, Jive, and Jitterbug! It was a fun way to celebrate! 


Candlewood's Community Partners Grow

Candlewood has been continuing to build strong partnerships with the community. The Candlewood Park subdivision sponsored Candlewood Elementary and collected tons of school supplies to donate to the students. This drive was part of what made National Night Out a success! Some of our partners at HEB also recently dropped by to read to Candlewood students and introduce them to HEB Buddy. These partnerships are absolutely invaluable. We are very grateful!

Be Bright...Be Drug Free!

The Red Ribbon Week theme at Hopkins Elementary School included several themes that allowed students to dress the part. Students celebrated being Drug-Free by dressing up in neon to be "Be the Brightest Fish in the Sea...Don't Do Drugs",  or wore sports gear for "Score Big! Be Drug-Free!", and still others wore blue to go along with "Sail the Drug-Free Ocean!" The school topped it all off with a big book fair in the end! 


Twin Day At Metzger MS

During Red Ribbon week each campus chooses its unique way of communicating the positive message of being drug-free. The Metzger Middle School administrators and office staff joined together to participate in Red Ribbon Week. Each "TWIN" represented a number while the principal, Dr. Valree became the "Principal of all Things". 

The JISD Community Gets To Know Dr. Ball

She's been around Judson ISD as superintendent since the summer, but getting to know the district and its people is a process. Dr. Jeanette Ball wanted to make that a little easier with a Community Meet and Greet at Kitty Hawk Middle School. It ended up being such a great chance for her to meet so many people.  She talked with parents, community members and of course all sorts of students during this evening. At the same time, everyone was privileged to enjoy several student musical performances that added so much to the event. There were also booster clubs and other organizations that were on hand for parents to explore and inquire. A big thank you to Kitty Hawk Middle School administration for helping with the event and of course Lexie Greathouse with JISD Business Partnerships for organizing this event for the community.
