Principal's Message

Welcome to what promises to be another fantastic school year at Viola DeWalt High School!


I am incredibly excited about this year and know that it promises to be filled with  opportunities for all of our students as the DeWalt staff strives to provide each student the support and encouragement for their academic success.


As we begin this year, we pledge to you . . . our students and parents . . . that this will be a wonderful year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, along with some fun and special times.


In the 2017 - 2018 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our foundation of good work and student success, with none being more important than continuing to build upon our tradition of excellence in education for every student.  At DeWalt our vision embodies:  Embracing Opportunities . . . Unlocking Potential . . . Inspiring Excellence! 


We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  Know that we highly value home/school communication here at DeWalt.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if the need arises.  We will do likewise.  We want and encourage our parents to stay in the know about their child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.


Again, we welcome you to Viola DeWalt High School and to our wonderful professional learning community . . . a place alive with much energy . . . enthusiasm . . . and a high standard of excellence!  It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound! 


Here’s to an AWESOME school year as we work to make each day better than the one before by being committed and striving for excellence!
