Title 1 Literacy Support Program at our School

Our mission at Dresden is to provide the plan, the means, the motivation, and the opportunity for each student with a safe and nurturing environment to grow as responsible citizen, becoming a life-long learner, and be successful in his or her chosen endeavors. At Dresden to help provide our students with a quality educational experience, we have a full time Literacy Consultant, Mrs. Pfeifer, a part-time Literacy Coach, Mrs. McInally, and a Para-Educator, Mrs. Daguanno to work with students daily to help support their individual needs in literacy.

The 3 Best Ways Parents can Help Teachers


Be involved in your child’s education – show them that you care and create a positive ‘triangle’ relationship between yourself, your child and your child’s teacher.

Educate yourself on the current trends in education – how is your child’s teacher
educating your child. Times change and so does the way we teach. As a parent it is
your job to come to grips with the new ways of learning, to best support and guide your
child through their learning journey.

Send them to school happy – Give your child a hug before they walk out the door and
you head off to work. Look them in the eye and tell them how much you love them, how
proud of them you are and boost their confidence every day. They will be more secure
and ready to start a positive day of learning.

Home - School Compact

Please review the Home-School Compact below. The Home-School Compact is a document signifying the commitment to success between the student, parent and teacher. Each person will ensure they are doing their part to help the student succeed at school and at home. The Home-School Compact will be coming home with your students once they begin their face to face instruction.
