Danforth Jr. High Newsletter
Monday, Sept. 13th, 2021

Principal’s Message
According to an app on my phone it was 62 degrees one morning last week. Maybe it was even cooler where you were. If you didn’t know what the exact temperature was…..the cool air sure felt nice.
And 62 may not mean fall is officially here but the typical activities we associate with this time of year are everywhere around us. We’re playing Football and Volleyball and running Cross Country. The Band is getting ready for competitions and Choir and One-Act Play are preparing as well. Academic tests in classrooms are challenging our students. There are student friendships being forged in the cafeteria and in various groups that may only last a day of two or might just last a lifetime.

62 was nice…..but you know there’s more good temps on the way……and more good for these students.

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