Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year
As the Principal of Daingerfield Junior High, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I also would like to take this time to share with you some facts about our school. Here at DJHS our students are engaged in core curriculum classes that will help to enhance their high school experience. We strive to teach the strategies that all students need to be successful in their careers and their future. This part of our students education works more efficiently if parents/guardians are involved. Family is so very important and we want to grow the “Tiger Pride” family. The faculty and staff are here to help support your child’s learning processes. Second, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us. We want to keep the communication lines open to help our children succeed.
During the 2018-2019 school year the students at DJHS were very successful. Academically we improved at the UIL district meet in several key areas. The Math/Science team went on to win state in Calculator and Number Sense. Athletically teams were built stronger for the future success of the “Tigers”. Our teachers created lessons that kept our students engaged in their learning, which helped them to finish the year strong.
We are still working on areas of growth within the student body. Self-discipline, to ensure everyone is doing what is right. Once a child can relate to the discipline, they are able to grow in all other areas of their life. The motto, “Do Right, because it’s the right thing to do” continues to encourage students in a positive way. Respect, this is the respect for ourselves and others. Bullying happens when a person doesn’t respect themselves. We have a procedure in place that helps combat bullying at school. We are needing parents/guardians help with Social media to ensure the bullying doesn’t happen outside of the school day. Work Ethic, how much effort we put into our own work can determine our success now and in the future. As we help guide our children down the path they will take through their academic years. We must work together to keep the light glowing for our children to see their potential. Let’s work together to make this next generations of leaders stronger than ever.
I am looking forward to the new school year, and I hope you are too.
LET’S GO BIG BLUE!
