Supper with the Singers – October 9th & 10th
Please join us for an evening of musical entertainment and great food with family, neighbors and friends.  Enjoy home-style Amish cooking in a casual, relaxed atmosphere while you listen to the talented voices of the Darby High School’s various vocal performing groups.  Under the direction of Dr. Michael G. Martin and Mrs. Hannah Sterman-Wilson, all Darby choirs will perform on both nights.  In addition, we will hear a special performance from our very own alumni choir, Una Voce – The Michael G. Martin Chorale.  All proceeds will directly benefit the Darby Choir program and go towards paying for busing on choir trips, guest clinicians and more.  Don’t miss out on this special night of food and fun!  Click here for ticket information.

What is Naviance – Parent University Session

Naviance is a college and career readiness solution that helps students discover their strengths and interests, and see how they can achieve their goals.  Join us on October 16th at 6:30 pm at Darby High School School to learn how we are intentionally utilizing Naviance in grades 9-12 to engage students in the learning process.
