Board Recognitions 12-21-17

Pledge reader Jazlynn Phillips is an outstanding 5th grade student at Park Village Elementary. Jazlynn makes A & B’s and science is her favorite subject. She plays Volleyball and wants to play for Kirby Middle School.  She loves to watch Spurs Basketball, enjoys Chinese food and watching spooky movies.  Jazlynn is the oldest sibling and is already being a good role model for her siblings by making good grades and having a positive attitude.

Our first board recognition comes from Judson High School.  When you are a student-athlete, you have to really be disciplined about how you divide up your time.  Giving your undivided attention at the right times to academics and to athletics is crucial to being standout student athletes.  We want to recognized these individuals for demonstrating that balance and for being named Academic All-State Student Athletes.  Please congratulate Colton Gruewals, Brody Stoepler and Remy Borrego.  Also making Academic All-State is Trainer Rebekah Wynn who was not able to attend this evening.

Our next recognition comes from Judson High School.  The Lone Star State School Counselor Association honors school counseling programs around the state that show excellence in results with students. It does that by recognizing select schools at the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels that represent increased levels of rigor. Judson High School’s counseling staff has been named a 2017 LSSSCA Bronze Winner. Staff members are:
JoAnne Cruz (Lead), Destiny Price, Velma Lopez, Hitomi Wilson, Misty Ornelas, Arlene Waldon, Christian Angulo, Mike Frantz, Leslie McClellan, Thomas Jimenez, Michelle Tubilla (At-Risk Counselor), Cynthia Cortez (College Counselor), Tammy Cantu (Career Counselor), Amber Palmer (Parenting Social Worker).

Our final Board Recognition comes from Crestview Elementary School.  I’m sure many of you have heard the recognition Crestview has received from the U.S. Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School.  They were one of only two selected in the San Antonio area…only 26 were chosen in the state of Texas.  We want to formally recognize Principal Yvonne Munoz and her staff before the board and get a look at the big plaque from the Education Department. I want to also point out that a good number of other schools chosen for this recognition are special academies or specific focus schools.  Crestview Elementary is a typical school in its structure, but is anything but typical in how it instructs and supports students garnering all possible assessment distinctions last year as a Title 1 campus.

There were over 40 entries from the district. Last night at the Distrct Board Meeting, JEF executive director Ms. Marisa Perez Diaz presented the top three contestants with gift certificates to Best Buy courtesy of Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union.

3rd Place was Alexis Malone from Judson Middle School

2nd Place was Felix Velasquez from Judson High School

1st Place was Chloe Bayani from Judson High School
