Welcome to the finest school in Angelina County - Diboll High School! Home of the Lumberjacks and Lady Jacks...

Principal's Message

Dear Students and Families:
 
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! Diboll High School is committed to providing a safe, positive, intellectual learning environment. We are not only preparing students for college, the workforce, and life in the 21st century. We are empowering students to become creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and inspired learners. 
 
The TEKS Resource System (TRS) continues to provide a rigorous approach to learning. Students are challenged to develop their analytical skills and communicate their learning verbally, in writing, and/or through digital technology. The successful implementation of our 1:1 Chromebook initiative provides students a true 21st century learning experience as they utilize digital learning tools inside the classroom and at home.
 
As I begin my fifth year as principal, I would like to make a commitment to the parents, community, faculty, staff, and students to uphold high expectations of academic performance within the classroom, participation in co-curricular activities, and responsible citizenship at school and in the community. 
 
I ask each student to make a commitment to Lumberjack Pride by being active participants in their learning and by acting responsibly within our learning community. Doing so will enable all to have a successful and enjoyable school year. High School is a time of a change and a rite of passage for our young adults. It is an exciting time, but with increased workloads, social adjustments, and multiple teachers throughout the day, it can also be challenging. 
 
Lumberjack Students, I encourage you to follow the Lumberjack Code:
· Protect the weak and defenseless
· Refrain from the wanton giving of offence
· Live by honor and for glory
· Fight for the welfare of all
· Respect those placed in authority
· Guard the honor of fellow Lumberjacks
· Eschew unfairness, meanness, bullying, and deceit
· At all times, to speak the truth
· Persevere to the end in any enterprise begun
· Respect the honor of women/men
· Never turn your back upon a challenge
 
Parents, please make time to:
 
· Ask your child specific questions about their time at school. For example, “What was the most interesting thing you did in Math, English, Science, and Social Studies class today?” 
· Use the Parent Portal early and often. The Portal gives relevant information regarding your child’s performance on homework, tests and quizzes, and attendance. Your interest in their progress will motivate them to do their best.
· Communicate with your child’s teachers to establish a successful home/school connection. All DHS teachers have classroom websites with their contact information, homework assignments, and useful resources.
· Watch for grades below a 75. Research shows that students who fall below a 75 in a core subject are less likely to pass the End-of-Course exam or score well on the ACT/SAT. 
· Ask your child about their friends. Who are they associating with at school?
· BE INVOLVED –  BE A PART –  BE SUPPORTIVE 
 
I encourage you all to be active in our PTSA and the Red and White Scholarship. Our partnership is essential for our continued success. We look forward to a positive, upbeat school year at DHS. Parents, please help us by reinforcing school expectations at home. With your help, DHS will continue to be a community in which every person feels respected and valued and is encouraged and challenged to achieve at the highest levels. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me, and know that my door is always open.
 
Finally, I have just one question. I know you know the answer, because it reminds us of how important it is have pride in our schools and community. Who are we? “Lumberjacks!!!”
 
I am honored to serve as your Principal.

Go Lumberjacks!!!!
