Notices & Reminders:

  • Happy Birthday Michael Magruder & Hoop Reed!!!

  • Just a reminder, the gym is not a hallway.  Fortunately, there is a hallway just 28 steps to the east!  Stay healthy, be respectful and choose the 28 steps.  Thank you!

  • Today’s shout out, “Shout to our wonderful new Darbians, Breanna Nelson and Megan Stewart.”  Remember, if you want to shout out something positive to students, teachers, other staff members at the school, grab a sticky note and post it outside Mr. Dufresne’s office.

  • Get your valentine roses from Spanish Club.  They are on sale NOW!

  • Quote of the day from a Darby student in response to the teach-to video:  “Yes, I definitely agree.  We are masking some of life’s greatest moments with phones.  They are extremely distracting when it comes to family time.”  Remember, be present where you are present!

  • Jan. 30th MAPS in Hamilton, will be conducting a class on developing portfolios designed to help students (high school as well as college) obtain funding for college.  This workshop is not about a single scholarship but about a process of looking at the future and actively engaging in obtaining goals - career/college ready.
