Yearbook Distribution Day will be on Thursday, September 28 which is next week during Homecoming activities. (Books will not be available for handout prior to 10 a.m. on September 28.)
We will have tables set up with the yearbooks in the commons during lunches that day, so we will be available there from roughly 10 am- 12:48 pm. After that time, books will be relocated to room 240 and will await pick up.
If you have moved or are a 2017 graduate, you are absolutely welcome to stop by to pick up your book or to send a friend or family member to get the book for you. Put those younger siblings to work!
Finally, if you are a current Darby student or the parent of a current Darby student, I would encourage you to place your 2017-2018 yearbook order before October 6. Purchase of the book plus purchase of one line of personalization allows you to add up to 4 free icons. This is also the lowest price of the year. Pricing will increase after October 6.

Our district has been intentional in language we use to talk about what is important in our school community. We have focused on three core values that we expect from ourselves as educators and from the students in our classrooms. We strive for alignment in both our language and our actions. Yes, our words matter – and yes, our actions matter more. We must not only talk the talk, but we must walk the walk.
In the Hilliard City Schools our three core values are: Read More…
In Hilliard, we use many tools to measure our students’ growth. This week, the Ohio Department of Education will release its annual Local School Report Cards. This is merely one tool, one set of data that is used.
We know there is so much more to a child’s learning and growth than what is measured on this report card, which offers only a limited snapshot on a handful of indicators. Instead, let us look at the ways we are empowering our young people more than ever before.
In Hilliard City Schools, we have: Read More…

The Hilliard City School District continues to create experiences that prepare our students to be Ready for Tomorrow. We know that every student needs foundational academic skills that are the building blocks of success. Hilliard students will continue to learn to read and write – and yes to write on paper and pencil, to type on computers, and to communicate via a myriad of iPad applications. Our students must learn their mathematics facts and processes. Social studies, science, and fine arts are (and will continue to be) the bedrock of academic preparation. Read More…
As we get ready to welcome students on Monday, August 21st back to school, there are a couple of common questions that seem to keep popping up. Please know our goal is to address every question with an answer that makes everyone happy. While this is our objective, several of these topics seem to be divisive. My commitment to you is straight answers with transparent reasons for each decision. Read More…
