Time to Update Contact Information

It is time once again to update contact information and sign-off on forms for next school year. This year is especially important because in August we will be changing to a new messaging system and it’s imperative we have correct contact information. The new system will allow us to more effectively communicate with you. We will have email, phone calls and text alerts available for those who want those forms of communication.

The DC Trail

Darby Creek is proud of a new bike trail they created this past school year. It’s a shared trail designed for walkers, hikers, and bike riders.

During school hours the Trail will be for students to use during recess periods and physical education classes. Similar to other outdoor spaces, like playgrounds and tracks in the Hilliard City School District, the trail will be open after school hours and on weekends for families and the community to use.

You can click here for a quick video you can watch to learn more about the DC Trail and how well it’s going. Feel free to bring your family over for a fun outdoor experience.

Davidson Theatre Students Paint Mural at Willow Ridge Therapeutic Riding

Davidson Theatre was asked to put some of its scene painting skills to work and paint a large mural on the barrier surrounding the Willow Ridge indoor facility. As soon as their fall production of Fools was over last November, and with a little help from a few students from Davidson’s chapters of Key Club, NHS, and even Bradley Theatre, they got to work.

Willow Ridge Therapeutic Riding offers equine therapy serving individuals from those with physical disabilities through those on the autism spectrum. They have both an indoor and an outdoor riding facility to be able to offer these services in all weather, year round.

The 1400 square foot project took a total of 5 days of painting throughout the course of the year and finished in mid-May.
