Are you interested in being an entrepreneur? Would you like to work with some of the top young entrepreneurs in the country and learn what it takes to build a successful business? This competition is for you!
Darlington has the opportunity to compete with several Atlanta Independent Schools in the Teen Entrepreneurship Makeathon Atlanta on January 24, 2021. The event will last from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. We will take breaks for snacks and lunch.
How it works:
"Makeathon encourages ambitious teens with an entrepreneurial spirit to test a new market opportunity centered around a specific business problem, which is presented to the students on the morning of the event.
Student teams work independently throughout the day on their projects, culminating in a pitch presented to our panel of judges. Students will also have a chance to attend Skill Labs to learn entrepreneurial skills such as Marketing, Product Design, Financials and Pitching. Young Founders Institute mentors are available throughout the challenge to support them through the process."
If you are interested, please register here. You may choose your team (3-5 students) or sign up on your own and you will be placed on a team. It is going to be a fun event, and the winners will win real money! I will send out more details and information once we have the teams set.
Welcome back! Just a friendly reminder to send a water bottle with your student daily. There are water filling stations throughout the campus for refills. Also, it is a good idea for students to have access to an extra mask in their backpacks. We do have extras at the front desk, if need be.
For those students taking the SAT this Saturday,December 5, plan to arrive by 7:45 A.M. at the side door of Thatcher Hall. Testing will begin promptly at 8:00 A.M. Bring the following items with you:

Welcome Back! I hope you had a great break and you are excited about the winter season beginning. There are a couple of things I would like to communicate moving forward.
PLAYOFF FOOTBALL GAME:
We are very proud of our Darlington Tigers for advancing to the second round of the GHSA Playoffs. Our Tigers will be on the road this Friday night, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. as we take on Prince Avenue Christian School. Prince Avenue has allotted 650 tickets for our parents and fans. Tickets will be $10 each and will be available pre-sale only; tickets will NOT be sold at the gate. Tickets can be purchased through the following Go Fan link:
Prince Avenue Christian School vs. Darlington School Event Link: https://gofan.co/app/events/171424
Basketball season officially starts this Saturday, Dec. 5 as our varsity boys' team will be hosting Woodland High School at 4:30 p.m.
As we continue to monitor COVID-19 and its effects, I feel that we will need to restrict the number of supporters allowed in the Huffman Building for these contests.
The day before each game, we will share a link through EVENTBRITE (much like we did for football). There, you will be able to reserve a spot for the contest. Darlington Community and students will share the same link. Each individual can reserve a maximum of 2 tickets. After you reserve a ticket through EVENTBRITE, you will receive a receipt/confirmation with your name on it. Those tickets will be shown at the door through your phone or a printed copy. Admission will not be allowed without a ticket.
Every student participating that day will receive 2 tickets; administered how they please.
Winter Sports GAME DAY PROTOCOLS:
I hope everyone understands Darlington’s procedures during this time as we take all needed precautions to ensure safety for our students and community. Please reach out to me with any questions.
