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.

All PTA Community Members who have paid their 2019-2020 dues are eligible to cast a vote for both a Helping Hands and Outstanding Educator nominee. You may only vote once and you must use a google account. Please read the attached nominations prior to making your vote. Votes are due Monday, March 9 at 3 pm.

Jump Rope for Heart:

Darby Woods annual Kids Heart Challenge to benefit the American Heart Association will be held the week of March 2nd-6th. Look for your child to bring home a Kids Heart Challenge envelope that includes steps to registering online, consent, release and indemnification page and a donation form. Please sign the release form so that your child can participate in this fun event that helps raise money to fight heart disease. Darby Woods goal is to get 50% of our students registered online. If we can reach this goal we'll receive $500 dollars worth of equipment to be used for the playground.

2020-2021 Kindergarten Registration Now Open:

If you have a youngster who will turn 5 on or before September 30, they are eligible to attend Kindergarten in the fall. The first step to get your child registered is to call Darby Woods at 614.801.8075. We are planning two special orientation evenings for the kids and their parents: May 5 from 4-5 pm and May 13 from 5-6 pm. Parents only need to attend one night. We look forward to seeing you in May!

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.
