Danforth Jr. High Newsletter
Monday, Mar. 9th, 2020

Principal’s Message
This Friday, March 13th students will be released from school at Noon. Car riders should be picked up at 12 pm and bus riders will leave our building around 12:10. For some of you, the early release will give you a bit of an early start to Spring Break. For others, even though you knew Spring Break was on us, it will still be a little bit of a hassle to make arrangements for your children for that afternoon. And we appreciate your help because those of us at the school will then have the chance to attend a professional development training by Dr. Adam Saenz on Social/Emotional Learning. He will be speaking to all of Wimberley I.S.D. from 1 pm to 3:30 pm. After that, our staff will get to join in the Spring Break frenzy that takes place each year. For some families that means travel and for others it’s a staycation here in beautiful Wimberley. Regardless of your circumstances, we hope you and your family are safe, happy, and healthy throughout the break and we’ll see our wonderful students right back here again on Monday, March 23rd.

Thanks for taking a look at the Newsletter.
Greg Howard, Principal
