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.
New accounts need an activation key. The district will be mailing those out in August, so save the letter if you need to create a new account.
To create an IC account, please go to: https://sites.google.com/swcsd.us/parentresources/infinite-campus/parent-portal-mobile-app
If you already have an IC account, please update your emergency contact information at: https://sites.google.com/swcsd.us/parentresources/infinite-campus/online-emergency-information-submission

Summer Learning Challenge
At the end of the school year, Darby Woods students learned about the "Summer Learning Challenge". All students, including those who are moving on to the Intermediate School, those joining Darby Woods from another school, and incoming Kindergartners, are all extended the opportunity to participate in the challenge. Here's how it works: following along with the BINGO board for the grade level your child will be in in the 2021-22 school year. Try to make one or more BINGOs. Make sure you print or bring in your game board to show your BINGO(s) to claim your prize. Additional instructions, including alternative ways to earn a BINGO spot, are found in the documents found below. Incoming Kindergartners do not have a BINGO board- just use the one document to keep track of your participation. Keep learning happening all summer long and enjoy participating!
Supporting the Community
This year, the Darby Woods Student Council is partnering with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to raise money for their organization. For any families that wish to donate online, you may do so by visiting the link below. Thank you for your generosity!
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Hero Squad, formerly Pennies for Patients, now reflects the collective impact students make on behalf of children battling blood cancer when they join together to raise awareness and funds in support of the LLS mission. The ultimate squad goal? Finding blood cancer cures and helping patients when it’s needed most. LLS Hero Squad unites students through teamwork, empathy and respect for others, while helping build critical STEM+ and SEL (Social & Emotional Learning) skills.
