Converse ES Student Wins Writing Contest

The National Elementary Honor Society recently solicited hundreds of schools to submit stories about the concept of responsibility.  Converse Elementary School was one of those campuses contacted.  The challenge was called the Watson Writing Project (Watson is the mascot of NEHS) and involved 430 other applicants.  Converse ES 5th grader Emerson Curtis was chosen to have her story published in the fall in the Watson Anthology.  That anthology is about the four pillars of the National Elementary Honor Society...scholarship, responsibility, service and leadership. Congratulations to Emerson on her efforts and her accomplishment of being a published author!

Woodlake Hills MS Performs Lion King

The Lion King was first a popular movie and then a delightful musical.  As incredibly demanding as the production is in music, acting and the technical production, the students at Woodlake Hills Middle School pulled it off with great flair.  At middle school level these student actors and actresses really showed some great talent and dedication to this production.  Congratulations to them and their theater teacher Adrianna Vela for bringing this show to Woodlake Hills families. 


Paschall Students Explore Careers

The Paschall Elementary School Career Day was a super event with lots of participation, but this event was a little different in the way it was organized.  That's because it wasn't just school staff giving input and putting the time into piecing it all together...the students did.  The school's 4th grade Career Club helped School Counselor Ms. Hume put this whole thing together. Parents and community members came in representing businesses and organizations such as Flowers Bakery, Channel 4 TV News, HEB, UTSA, the City of Kirby, the City of San Antonio and Bexar County.  Also presenting were scientists, engineers and medical professionals...even students from the Wagner Fashion Design program gave their take on what they do and how they hope to be successful. 

The school's Career Club has been very active this year and this event was a culmination of their passion and interest.  Students met weekly through the year with a couple of field trips that were stimulating.  They visited Wagner High School Career Pathways in the fall and the San Antonio Toyota Factory in the winter before helping with this grand finale for the year.  Great job!
