Lanier HS International Banking & Business Magnet students got a front-row view of bond trading this morning without having to leave San Antonio. They were able to watch pros in action for the active trading of $145 million in SAISD bonds at Frost Bank, home of San Antonio’s only bond trading floor. The District is hoping to achieve approximately $7 million in savings through this transaction.
More than 1,000 people turned out on Saturday for the 3rd annual SAISD Science Fair & Expo at the Alamo Convocation Center. The event, which featured science projects created by students in kindergarten through 5th grades, included the judging of the projects, student interviews conducted by secondary teachers and department chairs, a student exploration period where participants studied other projects (pictured here) to see what they might have done differently and an awards celebration.
