From the Guidance Office
Tolles is offering half day visits to students on the following dates: January 10th, January 17th & February 7th. This would be a great opportunity for freshman interested in attending Tolles or even sophomores that may want to visit again. Please see your counselor if you are interested.

Nick Paddock from the University of Cincinnati will be at Darby next Wednesday, January 16th, and would like to meet with any interested Juniors. If you would like to attend this presentation, please sign up via Naviance.

With all juniors taking the ACT on Wednesday, February 20, we want to make sure students are as prepared as possible. Trevor Maggied, our counselor at the ILC/HUB is currently in the process of meeting with all English 11 classes to instruct students on how to use the ACT Prep material in their Naviance account. For those who would like the opportunity to take an ACT practice test in a similar environment, for the similar amount of time, Mr. Maggied will also be opening the HUB on Saturday, January 26. The practice test will begin around 8:00 a.m and run until approximately 11:20 a.m.  Students must bring their own device, charged and ready to go. Space is limited, so please register here.
