Fire Prevention Week
It was wonderful for our students to learn about fire safety and prevention firsthand from firefighters of the Arlington Heights Fire Department. Our all-school fire drill with the AHFD is being rescheduled due to rainy weather last week.
Many of our older students are involved in helping our younger students in many ways at Dryden. Here is an example of one of our fifth grade students helping a younger student with reading.
Congratulations & Thank you, Dryden PTA!!!
Dryden PTA was recently recognized as a top tier, Diamond level organization. We thank all of the volunteers, family, staff and children who work together to make Dryden PTA great!
