Principal's Message

The 2014 summer has reached its midpoint and has brought many changes to WHS.  If you have been by the HS lately, you probably have noticed a little renovating going on around the campus which appears to be on schedule at this point.  Unfortunately, being on schedule does not necessarily mean it will be all done by the start of school, but many aspects will be complete.  This summer has also brought about some change in the leadership for the 2014-2015 school year.  Dr. Bonewald, who has done a great job in Wimberley, will be moving forward with his career in Victoria.  Although his dedication and leadership will be missed, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as Principal at WHS. Roz Simmons has come on board as the Assistant Principal and we are both excited for this chance to work with the great faculty, staff, students and parents.  

 

The remainder of the summer will be busy with the construction and working out the details of the 1:1 iPad initiative for students.  We will be updating parents through the website in late July on meeting opportunities and the details of what will need to be done before school starts.  The 2014-2015 school year promises to be full of GREAT opportunities for the students of this GREAT community!  Enjoy the rest of your summer!

I am in my first year as Principal at WHS and my thirteenth year in Wimberley ISD. Our goal atWHS is to ensure a positive, challenging and safe learning environment for all students.  We will provide a quality education ensuring our students will be prepared for post secondary learning while becoming productive citizens in our evolving society.  

 

 Personal Information

I made the decision to go into education while attending and subsequently graduating from Needville High School. My desire to work in education continued during my undergraduate studies at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. I graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Studies with a Biology Minor; I earned a Masters Degree in Education in 2000 and an Educational Administration Certification in 2002 from Tarleton as well. Before coming to Wimberley, I served as a science teacher and a coach at Glen Rose Junior High for four years. I then moved to Wimberley where I spent the first four years teaching biology and coaching football, powerlifting, and track at the high school. I worked as the Assistant Principal at WJHS in 2006-2007, HS Assistant Principal in 07-08, JH Principal from 2008-2014 and now WHS Principal. When not in school, I love to spend time with my wife, Carrie, our nine-year old daughter Claire and our three-year old daughter Josie. I appreciate and look forward to working with the students, parents, and faculty of Wimberley High School.

2014 Summer Lady Texan Volleyball Summer Camp
We will provide an environment for individuals to develop their individual skill. We will stress knowledge and execution of fundamentals of volleyball. Also, it is to prepare the camper to compete at the High School level.
2014 Summer Strength and Speed Camp
The basis of this camp will be to improve the overall athlete, both males and females. As a part of the six-week camp, athletes will perform strength, speed, and agility exercises on a daily basis to improve performance, prevent injury, and build sportsmanship. The instructors will reinforce proper technique in a motivational environment to enhance the experience of each athlete. The camp is not established to be sport specific. Instead, progressive strength, speed, and agility will be stressed to help prepare athletes for all sports.
If interested in the camp, please fill out and return the page of this packet to Coach Warren or Coach Lambert at the High School and Coach Beaty at the Junior High. We look forward to helping our Texan athletes reach their full potential during this summer’s TEXAN STRENGTH AND SPEED CAMP.
