Celebrate Read Across America Week in the McCallie-Kennedy Library during office hours on Tuesday


Grades > 9-12

This is READ ACROSS AMERICA week, the nation’s largest yearly celebration of reading where children and teens are motivated to read through events that are for everyone. To recognize and celebrate Read Across America here at Darlington, we will be holding a readathon during office hours on Tuesday. For those students who are interested, please bring the book you are currently enjoying to the Felker College Room. You’ll have an opportunity to read silently for pleasure. We’ll provide snacks, and our hope is that those of you who are working towards becoming part of the Varsity Library program will be able to use this time to check off another book from your Bingo card.

Reminders

6-8 Spring Conference Day Sign-up


Grades > Pre-K to 8

In-person Spring conferences for grades 6-8 will occur on Wednesday, March 10th. We look forward to meeting with parents and students to discuss progress since the beginning of the school year.

This is how it will work:

  • The number of time slots you need is based on the number of children you have. One child is one slot. No matter how many teachers you want to see.
  • All 6-8 students are welcome and even encouraged to attend conferences with their parents.
  • Parents are encouraged to sign up for an hour time slot. During that hour, all 6-8 classroom and enrichment teachers and advisors will be available for one-on-one meetings. 
  • You are signing up for one time slot, even if you are meeting with all of the teachers. 
  • Each hour will have a limited number of spots available to ensure the teachers can accommodate the traffic flow.
  • Individual one-on-one meetings will be limited to 5-10 minutes per teacher so multiple families can meet with teachers during that hour.
  • Individual meetings during the time slot will be a first-come/first-serve format

Sign up for a conference here

If you would prefer to conference virtually with your child's teaching team, or if you are unable to meet on March 10th, please send Angela Pieroni an email (apieroni@darlingtonschool.org), and she will arrange a conference with the team on a separate date.

Please send any additional questions to Angela Pieroni at apieroni@darlingtonschool.org. We look forward to another excellent day of conversations.
