As you make plans for your students to come to Darby this year please understand that as a high school we do not publish class supply lists like many of the elementary or middle schools. Typically each teacher will determine what is necessary for their class and communicate this to the students in the first week of school. On the first day of school a student who arrives with paper, pen or pencil and their back pack will be well prepared for the first day of school.

Congratulations to all of the Seniors who were honored in this morning’s assembly. There were a number of scholarships awarded and academic letters of recognition. With over a month left to go the class of 2011 has already accumulated over 3 million dollars in scholarship money. An outstanding achievement by an outstanding group of young people.
The media specialists at the three high schools in Hilliard wrote and received a grant from the Hilliard Education Foundation to bring Ellen Hopkins, the New York Times best-selling author, to Bradley, Darby and Davidson high schools May 4-6. She is the author of the wildly popular novel-in-verse trilogy Crank, Glass, and Fallout. Her visit will support both the Language Arts and Wellness curricula of Hilliard City Schools. It will enhance students’ understanding of the human story by reading literary text in the content area of health and wellness, and will also further students’ understanding that risk taking has unexpected consequences, and that a person has obligations to their health and the health of their family. Students will understand that life changes and outside influences affect self concepts. .
She will present to students in assemblies and writing workshops. Her visit will culminate in a program open to the public at Davidson High School, Friday, May 6, from 7-8 PM in the Performing Arts Center.
