Welcome to the 2021-2022 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 the 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.
The past two years we all have been struggling from the effects of the Covid virus. The amount of time students and staff have missed due to quarantine has caused the entire state to be behind academically. We are utilizing every minute of the day to fill in any gaps our students might have. There are a couple of other areas we focus on to help with citizenship the first being Self-discipline. This is 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 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 the 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!
