School News:


I hope everyone had a wonderful winter break! We are happy and excited to be back to school for the second half of the year.

Above this text, you will find a link to the 2019 winter assembly video. We put this out as a way for our parents to share in all of the great performances by our students done annually on the final day before winter break. I hope you enjoy it!

We are looking forward to a visit from published author David FitzSimmons on Wednesday, January 29. In preparation for his visit, we are offering discounted, author-signed books for our students to purchase. An orange-colored order form went home with students on January 6. If you need a new one sent home, please contact your child's teacher or call the school and we'll gladly send one. All orders need to be received by Friday, October 24. The books will arrive on the day of the visit. Please pay with exact cash or check.

Please take note that the school will be closed on Friday, January 17 due to an inservice. You may see cars in our parking lot, however the building is closed for students. We will again be closed on Monday, January 20 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

We have numerous other events both during and after school in store for 2020! We're looking forward to a great year!

Helping Hands and Outstanding Educator Nominations


Every year, our PTA recognizes both a certificated staff member and another member of the community for the outstanding work that they do for children. The Helping Hands Award is given to anyone who works on behalf of children to make a positive impact on their lives, and is a member of the PTA and is dedicated to it's purposes and mission. The Outstanding Educator Award is very similar but intended to recognize certificated staff members specifically, such as principals, superintendents, counselors and teachers.

We encourage community members to nominate deserving individuals for these awards. You may print the nomination forms and return them to Darby Woods Elementary or you may send them electronically to the address found on the form. All nominations are due by February 10, 2020.


Infinite Campus Accounts:

  • Infinite Campus (IC) is the District’s Internet-based student information system. Important features of IC are the Parent Portal and NEW Mobile App. Through the IC tools parents are able to access their child’s information, such as class schedules, attendance, academic reports, transportation information, coursework, and put funds in their child’s food service account online. Parents can also designate how and where they wish to receive emergency communications, attendance calls, general announcement messages, and e-mail messages from teachers, the school, and the school district.
