Principal’s Message

Our Danforth girls’ and boys’ basketball season has come to a close. Congratulations to all the athletes and coaches for this past weekend’s tournaments and a great basketball season. Now our 7th and 8th graders have track, tennis, and golf seasons ahead. Spring is also a very busy time for our choir and band students at area competitions. Good luck to all!

At the end of this week, we have the PTO-hosted Danforth Disco Ball. Dances are always highly-anticipated events around here. Fortunately for our kids, our PTO members and parent volunteers organize quite a great time, while we school administrators and our wonderful SRO, Deputy Martinez, roam around the party with “safety first” on our minds. To ensure the safest environment during our dances, our PTO members have organized a quick checklist of procedures and expectations, attached below. Mrs. Huebner and I will review these items with our students at school, but I think it’s great for parents to see the list, as well. Thank you so much to our PTO and all Danforth parents and guardians who plan to volunteer for this special event.

Our PTO’s dances are major fundraisers for our campus. This year, one of the major purchases our PTO funded was our new stage drapes in the cafeteria/auditorium area. They look great, and we are so appreciative of our PTO and our Danforth families.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead!

Christi Moeller, Principal
