For a few years now Alton Darby and Darby Creek have hosted a kid oriented “Warrior Dash” type challenge course! The unique course is designed to push each student to their limit with multiple obstacles and challenges along the way. Whether it’s climbing over barriers, squeezing through tunnels, or squirming through mud -everyone is guaranteed to have a BLAST! The focus of this “DASH” is to bring two school communities together and give students an opportunity to get exercise in a “FUN” way! You can watch this video to experience some of the fun!
Miss Sauer’s class at Horizon wanted to learn more after reading Wolford the Bunny by Ame Dyckman. They loved the book so much then couldn’t just put it on the shelf and forget it. So they decided to write a song about the book. They even tweeted the song to the author and she tweeted back! It was a such treat for the students to hear directly from Ms. Dyckman. She even sent them a package full of literacy goodies.
This experience drove the students to want to read more, especially more books from the author they can say they “know.” They will be able to expand their literacy skills by comparing and contrasting the adventures and experiences of all of her characters.
The Hilliard City School District is extremely fortunate to have so many parents that are willing to serve our students through numerous support organizations. From our music and athletic boosters, to our PTOs and all of the other organizations that provide for district activities, we are incredibly blessed to have dedicated, talented partners.
One area where the district partners with our support organizations is raising additional dollars to provide supplemental resources to our programs. From purchasing equipment for teams and groups to offsetting costs for student trips, from providing playground equipment to scholarships for families in need, the fundraising efforts of our support groups are instrumental to our district operations.
