Friendship Celebration

On February 14th, Dressel will be having classroom Friendship Celebrations. These are not a part of the District's 3 scheduled parties, so they are not open to guardians attending. Here is how you can help with this celebration:

  • Students may bring in Valentine's cards. Please have them completed beforehand and you must have one for each student in the classroom
  • NO CANDY/FOOD can be attached to the cards. Please limit the trinkets that are attached.
  • If you'd like to donate an extra box of cards, please send them to our Dressel Counselors.
  • Grade levels may reach out to parents about possible crafts to send in. This will be up to each grade level.
  • Teachers will also provide additional information in the coming weeks about further details.

2023-24 Kindergarten Registration - Coming Soon!

It's almost time for incoming Dressel kindergarten students to register for the 2023-24 school year. Dressel will be registering students the week of March 6th -10th

Cultural Night

I want to give a big shout-out to Mrs. Lane & Mrs. Omeragic for organizing and planning Dressel's 1st Cultural Night. I would also like to thank the other Dressel staff members who supported this night!

Our African drummers and Bosnian dancers were absolutely amazing! They brought so much energy to the night and did an outstanding job showcasing their cultures.

Most of all, I'd like to thank all of the families for attending and making this night so special!

Shout Out!

Let's show some love for our Dressel teachers and staff this February! Please fill out this form and your response will be shared with the teacher or staff member. Ideas include what about the teacher or staff member you love, something amazing they have done, a thank you, etc.
