Big Egg Hunt At NLC

First-grade students of Candlewood had the opportunity to participate in Northeast Lakeview’s annual Green Eggs and Ham Day. It was a fun-filled day of activities that included a book fair, Green Eggs and Ham reading, arts/crafts, grad photos, and egg hunt.) The group of 1st graders also had the opportunity to explore the Northeast Lakeview campus and learn a bit about the college life. The big finale was an Easter egg hunt with over 2,000 eggs for the children to discover. Tucked amongst the colorful eggs were seven golden eggs, in which the students could win a tablet. A few Candlewood students discovered the eggs and received the big prize. 


Get Ready, STEM Day Is Coming

Science, Technology, and Math continues to grow in both industry and academics and coming in May is the annual JISD STEM Day.  In partnership with Congressman Henry Cuellar, this event focuses on STEM careers and hands-on exhibits that allow all ages to explore and experience this expanding industry and field of study. Join us...and get caught up in the wave of the STEM future. 

It Was A Zoo At Candlewood!

 Candlewood had its 18th Annual Petting Zoo Extravaganza!  Parents, staff, and our students were excited to pet, feed, and interact with kangaroos, llamas, zebras, and goats, just to name a few.   

The Petting Zoo Extravaganza also included a cowboy and cowgirl experience.  Our Eagles hopped on their horses and rode away with their hats, filled a pan with beans, and lassoed run-away horses.  

The Petting Zoo Extravaganza wrapped up with our Eagles sitting down to a Frito-pie filled Cowboy Brunch where they chatted with fellow cowboys and cowgirls about their fun-filled day.  

Four Rocket Choirs Compete and Earn Awards

Varsity Tenor-Bass choir got a “Superior” Rating in sight-reading, and the Non-Varsity Treble, Varsity Treble, and Varsity Mixed Choir all received Sweepstakes Awards for “Superior” performances on stage and in the sight-reading room. Way to go Judson Choir and congratulations to Directors David Short and Tiffany Cristo!



Rocket Boys Basketball Star Going North

It's great when we see students getting full scholarships for their academic or athletic abilities.  This time it's Rocket small forward Dhimani Hernandez who signed a full 4-year scholarship to Graceland University in Iowa. Dhimani formally signed at his home when Graceland Head Basketball Coach Cory Hoff was able to visit. Congratulations.
