Principal’s Message

Welcome to Darby Woods Elementary School!

I would like to introduce myself to the parents and families of Darby Woods Elementary. My name is Brian Novar and I am the principal at Darby Woods Elementary School. I am very excited for the opportunity to work with your family!

I sincerely believe in the value of a high-quality, rigorous education. It is my intention to ensure that every student who leaves Darby Woods will take with them the skills and knowledge that will support them and serve as a solid foundation for continued growth at their next school and throughout life.

How do we make this happen? I believe that schools do not operate in a vacuum. Success is found when the school, the family, and the student all work in conjunction towards a common goal. As principal of the school, I plan to work diligently with students, staff, and families to ensure that our ultimate goal- the ongoing, successful, growth and development of your child- is met.

I am here to support your students. If I can ever be of assistance to you for whatever reason, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school or via the email address listed below. I'm looking forward to an outstanding school year!


Mr. Brian Novar
