Hi, Andy here.
As Head of School, I am excited to share the many exciting things that take place at our school. Please bookmark this page and visit it often to get the latest on the great things happening on the Mountainside!
THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE!
And there is nothing more appropriate to share with everyone than our beautiful Winter Concert. This past December 13, the entire Darrow community was treated to a marvelous performance from our chorus and jazz ensemble. The students gave inspired and moving performances that we couldn't wait to share with you. Please join me in thanking and congratulating all of our student performers, Ms. Massery - Chorus Director, Mr. Wrba - Music Director, and our special guest, folk musician Billy Keane. Enjoy this special performance and happy holidays!
