Darlington has supported the Angel Express project for many years. It is a program that helps needy families in the Rome area during the Christmas season. Some of the items needed are; gently used toys, bikes, riding toys, wagons, dolls and dollhouses, puzzles, toy cars and trucks, games and sports equipment.
They can also use teen accessories such as purses, jewelry, warm coats, scarves/ hats, and warm winter clothes. We will be collecting items from Tuesday, December 3 - Friday, December 13 at Thatcher Hall.
Please clean out your playrooms and closets and help a family in need.
As we near the end of the year, we are notifying students that all library books are due back no later than 3:20 pm Friday, Dec 13. Exceptions will only be made with a conversation with Mrs. Jacobs or Mrs. Holmes.
If the item(s) is not returned by 12/13 at 3:20, please understand that your student account will be charged the replacement cost of the book. We don't enjoy charging students, so we're hoping that through this communication, you will return the item by the due date and avoid late charges.
