Principal's Message

Dear Students and Families:
 
Welcome to the 2019-2020 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!!!!

Attention: Parents and Students regarding Social Media

Please read the following message about social media. From the Principal….. Parents and Students, As we get into the holiday season, it is time to remind all students who are involved in extracurricular activities and their parents of a policy that could affect their status as a team member. All extracurricular programs at Diboll High School have a policy concerning social media that, if violated, may result in removal from the program. They are as follows: Athletics: It is impermissible for student-athletes to post information, photos, or other representations of sexual content, inappropriate behavior (e.g.: drug or alcohol use), or items that could interpret as demeaning or inflammatory. Student-athletes are required to abide by all team policies, athletic department policies, and DISD student code of conduct rules when utilizing social media websites. Dazzlers: Maintaining a higher standard of conduct will also include ensuring that drill team members' websites are appropriate. The Internet is a worldwide, publicly accessible form of communication. Any communication such as, but not limited to, Snapchat messages, Facebook, Instagram, or photo sharing, etc., appearing on the Internet is public domain even if it is marked private. Drill members are responsible for their websites and postings as well as for postings on other students' sites. The area of appropriateness will include, but is not limited to, language (abbreviated or alluding to), pictures, suggestive poses, clothing, and any reference to alcohol, drugs, and tobacco. The principal and sponsor will decide any questions of appropriateness. Cheerleaders: Any communication using any form of social media such as, but not limited to, Snapchat messages, Facebook, Instagram, or photo sharing, etc., appearing on the Internet is public domain even if it is marked private. This includes, but is not limited to, language (abbreviated or alluding to), pictures, suggestive poses, clothing, any reference to alcohol, drugs, and tobacco, and any reference to a parent, sponsor, or another cheerleader in any derogatory manner. Student Code of Conduct for DISD: Sending, posting, delivering, or possessing electronic messages that are abusive, obscene, sexually-oriented, threatening, harassing, damaging to another's reputation, or illegal, including cyberbullying and "sexting," either on or off school property if the conduct causes a substantial disruption to the educational environment or infringes on the rights of another student at school. As the principal of the high school, I want everyone to be informed. Social media has become a very unhealthy environment for our children. By the time the principal and vice-principal have gotten involved, the text that was posted or reposted is demeaning, harsh, and full of vulgarity. Parents, I would suggest that you take the time to look at your child's social media posts. One statement about a student, school employee, or parent could cost them demerits or removal from their position on the team or program. I am asking coaches and sponsors to take immediate action with all athletes and/or performing team members who have posted in an inappropriate manner. For the student body at large; from this point forward, students who post demeaning, derogatory, and/or threatening posts toward anyone will be subject to disciplinary action. Please be aware that this action will include ISS, OSS, and (depending on the nature of the post) Disciplinary Alternative Education Program. Lastly; many colleges, universities, employers, tech colleges, and junior colleges are beginning to check all social media sites to see how you present yourself. Students found with demeaning or derogatory posts are not admitted. BE CAREFUL Students. John R. Clements, M.Ed Principal Diboll High School
