Wimberley Independent School District teachers, staff and administrators joined together for the 2018-19 school year convocation on Aug. 9 at the J. Gary Wyatt and Lydia Miller-Wyatt Lone Star Theatre.
The event is a traditional kick-off for the district toward the new academic year.
Presenting the 2018 convocation was Johanna Dennis, a Jacob’s Well Elementary teacher who survived both the Memorial Day 2015 flood, as well as cancer.
“We can choose to be happy right where we are. Even in the hardest times and most difficult situations, we can focus on the positive,” Dennis said. “We need to choose to like our career. We need to choose to like our peers, our teammates, our students, and our families.”
Dwain York, WISD superintendent, said Davis’ enthusiasm is a reminder of the importance of a positive attitude and the “willingness to choose to make the best o every day.”
“We are excited to begin the school year with our teams of amazing teachers just like her who are role models and inspirations in their dedication to teaching Wimberley ISD children,” York said.
Along with the superintendent, the high school band opened the ceremony with a few tunes including the school song.
The first day of school for WISD was Aug. 15. The school district will welcome approximately 2,500 students this year.
