It has been a fabulous, festive week at Dryden!
We have been celebrating Character Counts and Red Ribbon Days.
Each day, our mascot Echo and all of the students and staff would dress in the color of the Character Pillar of the day:
Blue = Trust
Green = Responsibility
Yellow = Respect
Orange = Fairness
Red = Caring
Purple = Citizenship
Our Student Council shared information about the Character Pillar during our morning announcements. They tied red ribbons on every door nob in our school to remind us to make healthy choices.
Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. Moxley led students in special activities during lunch and recess that focused on making healthy choices and using the six pillars of good character.
Our PTA, staff and students worked together to learn about Food Allergy Awareness and the Teal Pumpkin Project.
It was a beautiful day for a costume parade through the neighborhood!
Our staff Halloween costume theme was "Emojis". It was so fun to see the many characters and expressions together!
We thank the PTA for bringing us many fun games, crafts and treats for the classroom Halloween parties following the parade! It was very special and fun-filled week! Many thanks to our staff and parents for making it so wonderful for the children!
