1st Grade Musical
Mr. Deptula has created a wonderful musical for our 1st graders, and we need some help! Please see the sign up to see where you can help. Our goal is to have the 1st grade parents sit back and enjoy their child's evening performance, so if you commit to working the sound system the evening of the 29th and attend a rehearsal, we will reserve a front row seat for you at your child's musical. Thanks!
Please click here to respond to the Halloween Home Lunch & Party Participation form. Please complete this form if you plan for your child to go home during the lunch hour on Halloween and/or if you are planning to NOT have your child participation in the Halloween parade and party.
We look forward to a safe and fun-filled celebration at Dryden!

Picture Day Pictures are In!
All parents who ordered photos should have received their child’s photo from picture day last Friday. If those smiles were not as bright as you would like, we will have retakes on November 6.
Please note no class photos were in your packages. Class photos will be delivered separately. Again, every child will receive a class photograph regardless of ordering courtesy of our PTA. As soon as we receive them, we will be sure to get them out to everyone.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Shani Jarrett at email@example.com or (847) 331-4515.
