TOPS Events Provide Entertainment For All Grades
By Katherine M., Blue Team

Beyond just simple academics, the Darien community offers loads of extra-curricular activities. One of the most widely known is TOPS, a program supported by the Depot.

TOPS stands for “Teen Options.” Anyone from Middlesex can join; it's open to all 6 th , 7 th , and 8 th graders. In order to do TOPS, however, there is paperwork that needs to be filled out and signed by a parent.

Members can either pay everything up front or sign in at the door for each activity. Joining is simple and can be done online by going to the Middlesex website and selecting the TOPS option.

There are different events for each grade that take place throughout the year. They include dances, bowling, the movies, and swimming. At the end of the school year, everyone is allowed to go to the Hindley Happening the Friday night before it is open to the rest of the public.

For those who are interested in participating, here is a calendar of events:
