On St. Patrick's Day and every day I feel so lucky to be a part of Dryden!
This past week, our staff hosted a Family Reading Night. We felt so lucky to see so many kids come to school in their jammies to enjoy some great books and activities by their favorite teachers. At Dryden we believe that an important key to students' growth in reading is to have a love of reading, and that love of reading starts with our teachers sharing their love of reading with students.
It's always so rewarding to have our former Dolphins return to visit us. This week we were lucky to have a very special visit from a former Dolphin, who is now a student at Yale University. He brought his Yale a capella group to Dryden to perform for us. What wonderful entertainment and inspiration for us all!
We are also lucky to have such an awesome group of fifth grade students! They gave their best during the basketball shoot-out fundrasier, as their efforts result in a special legacy gift to Dryden - a beautiful picnic table for the courtyard!
