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. 


The Rocket Band Does The Tobin!

The Judson High School Rocket Band performed at the first annual Youth Orchestra of San Antonio (YOSA) Invitational recently.  The event was downtown at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.  The ensemble from Judson was one of 16 that were selected to take part.  It was an awesome experience for these students to perform in a venue like this.  Congratulations to these students and Director Jeffrey Keyes. 

The JISD Art Extravaganza- Don't Miss It!

It happens each year at Rolling Oaks Mall because it's one of the few places big enough to hold all the incredible visual and performing art exhibits that JISD students have to offer.  The Judson ISD Art Extravaganza is a massive display of paintings, drawings, sculptures, dancing and music you will ever see from students.  They have so much talent...it's amazing they can do all the things they do at such a young age. It's also a testimony to great instruction and coaching from excellent teachers.  

However you look at it, this event is a feast for the eyes and ears as these exhibits will be going on during mall hours on Wednesday, May 17th.  That's from 10 am to 9 pm. Join us for this great event in support of our students.
