Dear Families and Lake Asbury Community,
I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your students here on our campus at Lake Asbury Junior High.
As a classroom teacher I spent many years next door at Lake Asbury Elementary and am thankful to be back in the community. I am able to see students now and find out that I previously taught their older brothers, sisters, and cousins…oh my!
One of the many things that make our school community so special for students is family involvement. Students know that as a school and family unit we are working together for their long term success while working toward short term goals each week, month, quarter, semester and year. At our high school we offer many courses for students to pursue their interests outside of their four core content classes of Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Students have the opportunity to participate in Band, Chorus, Musical Theater, Technology, Robotics, Agriculture, Hospitality and Tourism, Careers in Fashion and Interior Design, as well as Spanish. Another unique facet to our school is our STEAM program. Students in this program apply from all over Clay County in order to attend. During their two years of participation students are given additional learning opportunities and experiences while they begin to earn high school credits.
Having grown up here in Clay County and graduated from Middleburg High, Go Broncos!I am so honored to have spent my 23 years as an educator here in Clay County. I don’t take lightly the awesome responsibility of the trust that the families and community have in us here at the school to send your children to us each day. Thank you for all you do, along with the school, to provide a consistent and united front for our students.
Assistant Principal and Title IX Coordinator, Daniel Davis
