Teacher Assistant Appreciation Day, November 20

At Dryden, we are so fortunate to have very caring and dedicated teaching assistants. They provide such wonderful, personalized support to our students in every imaginable setting throughout our school. On November 20, please join us in thanking and celebrating the following amazing individuals:


  • Mrs. Brzozka, Emerging Bilingual Program
  • Mrs. Gallagher, Special Education
  • Mrs. Johnson, Special Education
  • Mrs. O'Hara, LMC
  • Mrs. Shalton, Special Education

Hat Day, November 21

By special request, our first school spirit day, HAT DAY, has been moved from September 22 to THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21. It just so happens that the theme of our mulitage & second grade musical performance is "Hats" and their performance is also on September 21. Let's have some fun and show them our support by wearing a hat to school. We love to encourage our students' innovation and creativity, so they are welcome to design and create their own hats to wear to school on Hat Day, too!

Multi-Age & Second Grade Musical


Multi-Age & Second Grade Students, it's your time to shine! Mr Deptula has another wonderful musical planned for our kids. He can't do it all himself, he needs parent help with a variety of tasks. Please see the attached link for the Sign-Up Genius. We would prefer to have Dryden families help out the evening of the performance so the parents of the multi-age and second grade students can sit back and enjoy their child's performance. Please contact Nikki mathfam4@gmail.com or Michelle mjcastaneda16@gmail.com if you have any questions. Thank you!
