As spring sports are finishing up, we are now preparing for the 2021-2022 sports seasons at the middle school. If you are entering grades 6-8, please look through the information below in regards to tryouts and summer workouts. 

For some teams, if you don’t sign up now, you will not have an opportunity to play in the fall because we start that season during the summer. Please reach out to the individual coach for more information.

Girls’ Volleyball - We will have girls volleyball workouts April 28-29 from 2:35 to 4:30 p.m. in the Johnson Field House. Current middle school girls will practice during that P.E. period and current fifth-graders interested in playing will be escorted to the gym at 3:15 p.m. All volleyball players can be picked up at the Huffman Athletic Center at 4:30 p.m. Current students must attend if planning on playing volleyball next fall. Volleyball practices will start on Aug. 5 (before school starts), so make sure you contact Coach Eberhart at ceberhart@darlingtonschool.org if you are interested in playing.

AP Exam Information and Schedule

Just a few reminders before the start of the AP Exam administration. Administration 1 begins on Monday, May 3 and ends on Monday, May 17. 

For those students taking the in-person, pen and paper AP exams (session 1), I am attaching the 2021 schedule and room location for your reference.

Please make note that the second exam of the day will begin at 12:30 p.m., not 12:00 p.m. This will allow those that have a first exam time for food and a restroom break. 

Students please log in to your College Board account and check to make sure your administration (1,2 or 3) is listed correctly. Email Wendy Payne, if not. 

Students that utilize the learning center, you will take your exams in the learning center. 

I have linked the following for students taking exams in session 2 and 3 Review the full exam schedule for all administrations.

The following are things you need to remember for exam day:

  • Bring two # 2 pencils
  • Bring an approved calculator, if your exam permits one
  • No cell phones allowed. It's best to leave them in your car, or backpack in the hall
  • You may bring a snack. Leave it in your backpack in the hall. You will be permitted to eat it during break 
  • For students that have two exams in one day bring something to eat in between the exams. You will not have time to go anywhere to eat
