Healthy, Helpful and Hungry

What a beautiful morning we had for Walk to School Day! Our teachers met students at different starting points around our school and enjoyed a brisk and healthy walk to school together. It was so great to see so many families and friends walking to school together on Earth Day, saving gas and reducing air pollution while getting some exercise. 

Our fifth grade students put forth their best effort at the Basketball Shoot Out fundraiser. The fifth grade classes competed to see which class would score the most baskets in a given amount of time. The fifth grade students will use the proceeds from this fundraiser to choose a special gift to leave to the school that will benefit future Dryden students for years to come. We thank the Class of 2015, their families and our wonderful PTA for coordinating this special event. 

We also took time to thank two of the most helpful people in the whole school, Mrs. Lane and Mrs. Kelly, on Administrative Professionals Day. It's difficult to put into words all the ways Mrs. Lane and Mrs. Kelly go above and beyond to help every student, parent, visitor and staff member at Dryden, but these first graders sure did a great job!

It was such a delight to see so many families come out for Moms & Munchies early Thursday morning before school. We thank the PTA for providing this opportunity for our students, parents and caregivers to get together and enjoy some social time before the start of the school day.
