It's been a beautiful fall!
Thanks to our PTA, the children have enjoying the changing of the seasons.
Several parents facilitate an after school running club. What a great way to get some fresh air, exercise and spend time with friends!
Last Friday, the PTA sponsored a Fall Fun Fest at Dryden. It was a great way for our families to come together for some fun to see familiar friends and make new friends.
The Arlington Heights Fire Department came to Dryden and provided a demonstration and gave tours of the fire engine. Our school resource officer, Officer Veenstra, also came and gave police badge stickers to the children.
There was a pumpkin patch set up outside the school. The children enjoyed picking pumpkins and painting them once inside the school.
There were other crafts like spin art and lollipop decorating.
Face painting was another highlight of the Fall Fun Fest. We thank all the former Dryden students returned to volunteer their artistic talents.
Inflatables provided a way for students to actively play and let off some steam.
There were many fun games, too!
Pumpkin Ring Toss
Candy Corn Estimation
An old-fashioned cake walk was another highlight of the evening. Thanks to many of our parents for the delicious home made donations!
There was plenty of good food to eat: popcorn, pizza and fresh apples!
