Danforth Jr. High Newsletter

Principal’s Message


Our students heard a fantastic message last Tuesday from Nick Vujicic during our combined Jr High/High School assembly. Judging by their response that day in the gym as they listened to him, I would assume many of our students shared some of the highlights of his speech with you at home at some point last week. And we hope conversations like those continue throughout the entire year. His message about rising above bullying takes daily work from us all. Our goal will continue to be for each of our students to come to school excited to spend time with their friends and comfortable with everyone…...and of course…… ready to learn.
If you’d like to watch and hear Nick’s message to our students it can be found at riseabovebullying.com
You’ll need to scroll down the webpage to Oct. 1, Wimberley.
Thanks for taking a look at our Newsletter.
