Bonnie Anderson: The Grammys Come Calling

View Video
Bonnie Anderson has been a staple at Coronado Village Elementary School for years building a love for music among students of all grade levels. Her efforts have always been rewarded by the enthusiasm and dedication her students show. Now she's been recognized for her dedication by the Grammy Foundation as one of the top 10 Music Educators in the country. The Grammy entourage was led by Grammy Foundation Vice President Scott Goldman and Theresa Jenkins. Mr. Goldman presented Bonnie a check for $1,000 and the school with another check for $1,000. Students from all grades squeezed into the cafeteria for the presentation and everyone showed their love and appreciation to Bonnie. Congratulations to Bonnie with many more songs to play.

Prize Parade, Helping Teachers In The Cla$$room

The Judson Education Foundation is always looking for ways to help teachers and students with grants and scholarships. Recently it went on its yearly Prize Parade to award teacher grants to innovative teachers who are looking for ways to make their instruction more engaging and relevant to students.  You know when they are on your campus just by the mere beat of the drumline that comes rumbling through the hallways heralding their arrival and the bearing of some wonderful grants to help out.  This year JEF awarded more than $37,000 in teacher grants to 28 teachers spread across 12 campuses.  We congratulate all of these teachers and we hope these resources will help as they plan and prepare for next year.

JEF's Scholarship Squad A Student Sensation!

The Judson Education Foundation works year 'round raising money for teacher grants and student scholarships, so when they get the chance each year to award student scholarships, they get PUMPED!  You can tell that even the students are excited...even though they still try to stay cool...they're stoked inside. Think about it, anywhere from $1,000 to several thousand dollars in scholarship money being awarded.  In the end, $37,500 in scholarships were awarded to 15 students at Judson, Wagner and JECA. Congratulations to these students and may they fulfill their academic ambitions at the next level.

JISD's Art Extravaganza: Color, Performance & Music

It is always a crowd pleaser every year.  The 2016 Judson ISD Art Extravaganza featured thousands of exhibits from students across the grade levels.  It is truly amazing the artistic talents these students have inside them and can express through so many mediums of art.  This event at Rolling Oaks Mall has gotten bigger every year with crowds at times walking almost shoulder to shoulder through the mall walkways filled with art exhibits.  An then in the evening are the performances, both musical and dance that were some of the biggest draws.  At it's peak, there was an estimated 6,000-7,000 extra people in the mall to see the artwork and performances that evening. We want to thank all the volunteers, and others that made this event happen.  Art is so important for the total student and JISD is proud to organize this each year.

Can't Go To Graduation? Live Stream It!

We know that due to time, mileage or even health reasons sometimes you or other family members may not be able to attend graduation ceremonies.  It's a big event, so instead of being bummed about missing stream it.  Our awesome Technology Department has again made it possible for graduation ceremonies for Judson Early College Academy, Wagner High School, Judson High School and Judson Learning Academy to be seen on the world wide web live as students walk across the stage.  Below are the links you can click to see each ceremony. If you've got a computer or a smart phone with a connection to the internet anywhere in the world you should be good. Enjoy!
