WELCOME TO THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR!
Hello, my name is Amy Billingslea, I am the Principal at Daingerfield Junior High School. I first want to thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I would like 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 the 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.
Being a past graduate I do understand the areas that are a concern for families. I left our community to follow my husband with his work nineteen years ago. Working in other area school districts, I have experiences that will enhance our students future. The requirements for jobs in work ethic, loyalty, and communication skills are something that must be taught starting at the Junior High level. I know if we use the team approach we will be able to promote these vital skills for our children. I really do appreciate the opportunity to work in Daingerfield again. I also look forward to having conversations with anyone who wants to help our future generations to be successful.
