Seventh grade students have spent the semester discovering their passions, embracing productive discomfort, and preparing to give a TED talk. This is all part of the Project Discover class at the ILC. The purpose of these TED talks is to share their story and suggest solutions to the problem. The students receive public speaking credit, but they aren’t giving speeches – they are sharing their hearts and passions. Some of the talks included; caring for the children of military families, challenging teen readers to select books with diverse main characters, and creating playgrounds with literary characters. Using their R Factor training and Growth Mindset work in overcoming their fears of public speaking they are becoming Ready for Tomorrow.
New this year we will be using School Messenger to CALL all parents and guardians in our District to notify them of weather delays or cancelations. It’s imperative that your phone number is correct in Home Access. The calls will go to PRIMARY numbers only, so be sure you have the number you want weather calls to go to listed as your primary number.
In order to test this system, we will do a test call tomorrow, Friday December 9 at 4pm. This test call will go to all parents and staff. It will also go to community members who are signed up on School Messenger.
If you do NOT get the call, please first check Home Access to be sure your contact information is correct. If you are not a guardian and still wish to get the call you can sign up here.
We will also still send an email, post on Twitter and Facebook, post on our building web pages and notify local media when we have weather delays or cancelations.

The first grade students in Mrs. Newton’s class at Crossing have been sharing their holiday traditions. They write about what their families do at the holidays and then decorate a stocking and share with the class. It is an amazing opportunity for children to learn about other families and cultures. They get to see similarities and differences with their classmates. In Hilliard, our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. Mrs. Newton has done this lesson with students for the past 20 years, and she has learned some new traditions along the way that she has shared with her own family.
Darby High School Principal Joyce Brickley and Athletic Director Chris Ludban have been recognized by Nationwide Children’s Hospital as their “Friends of the Poison Center.” According to a hospital spokesperson the Children’s Hospital Doctors were “impressed and grateful” that the two stayed with a patient until she was stabilized and until her family arrived.
While we know this is something all of our administrators would do to keep our students safe and cared for, we are proud that Nationwide Children’s took the time to recognize Ms. Brickley and Mr. Ludban.
