Dryden Dolphin Splash Newsletter
August 29, 2021
We are so proud of our students for completing their first full week of school! It's been great to see how quickly they are adjusting to school routines and getting into their learning.
Thank you to our teachers for a wonderful, informative Curriculum Night! We appreciated that so many parents were able to join us to learn about the important and exciting things our students will be learning at Dryden this year.
Also, many thanks to those who were able to stop by the Dryden LMC to participate in our "Hook-A-Book" fundraiser. $1100 was raised to purchase new books and equipment for the LMC.

School Lunch Reminder
Please note that students who choose to pack a meal from home are invited to take a bag with milk that will also contain a fruit, vegetable, and grain at no charge. If your child has food allergies or food intolerances, please work with them to identify what they can consume from this bag, should they decide to pick it up.
All of these bagged items will be wrapped. If a student chooses not to consume all items, those may be placed on a table in the eating area so as to not be wasted.
As a reminder, lunch is free this school year for all District 25 students.
