Dear Parents and Students of Darby School:
Welcome back to the 2013-2014 school year. I’m excited for the new year and looking forward to seeing you all again and a great year!.
This summer the Montana Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, (MAHPERD) awarded Mrs. Caroline Ehmann the High School Health Enhancement Teacher of the Year.
This year school starts for K-9th grade on August 26, 2013. All of the 5th, 6th and 7th grade students will start off the first day in their homeroom teacher’s classroom.
5th grade homeroom -- Mrs. McCready
6th grade homeroom -- Mr. May
7th grade homeroom -- Mr. McCrossin
The 8th and 9th grade students will begin their first day together in the high school gym for an assembly. The 10th - 12th grade students will start classes on Tuesday, August 27, 2013. These students will also start off their first day with an assembly in the high school gym.
All students in the 8th - 12th grade will be able to pick up a copy of their schedule from the high school office on Friday, August 23, 2013 during the open house from 1-4pm. After that, you can walk around and meet your teachers. Schedule changes will be made during the first week of school and students will need to fill out a request for schedule change form at the office.
Our lunch prices have changed slightly: K-5 will be charged $2.40 for lunch; 7-12 will be charged $2.70 for lunch; and adults will be charged $3.60 for lunch. Breakfast continues to be free for every student in our school and will be served in the classroom like last year. Additionally, the free and reduced forms are available at both offices.
This year there are some fees that need to be paid to the high school office during the first week of school. Our school board has changed the activity fee from a pay-to-play fee to a single activity fee for all students 6-8 and 9-12. This fee will cover the students admissions to all home games and participation in all activities. Students desiring to participate in one of the sports that we are involved in a cooperative activity (girl’s soccer, wrestling, girl’s softball) will pay additional fees to the cooperative school.
Students in 6-8th grade need to pay a one time fee of $40.00 and students in 9-12th grade will need to pay a one time fee of $60.00. Additionally, all students in 5th-12th grade will be provided a combination locker this year, there is a $5.00 locker fee that will need to be paid to either office during the first week of school.
If you have any questions, please call me or stop by for a visit.
