From The Principal

Due to all of the unexpected snow days report cards will be e-mailed by the district on Feb. 6th. 

Each year parents and guardians get the chance to take a survey that tells us and the district how you feel we are doing.  You will find the link to that survey in our February newsletter under the News tab.  Please take a few minutes to complete the survey.  It is a big help to us as we focus on what we are doing well and where we can improve. 

Upcoming Dates:
Feb 5th Rink Night
Feb 7th Conferences
Feb 8th Daddy Daughter Dance
Feb 13th PTO 6:30pm
Feb 15th Bagel Day
Feb 18-22 Mid Winter Break
Feb 21 Dave and Buster Fundraiser 6-9 pm


The purpose at Dresden is to provide the plan, the means, the motivation, and the opportunity for each student within a safe and nurturing environment to grow as a responsible citizen, become a life-long learner, and be successful in his or her chosen endeavors.

Electronic Report Cards

Dresden Elementary offers parents two easy ways to electronically access your student’s semester grades through a secure system.  These options will allow parents to view semester grades and attendance as soon as the information becomes available:

  • PowerSchool - PowerSchool allows you to view semester grades and attendance. Parents who do not have access to a PowerSchool account will need to register for one prior to the end of the marking period. The report cards will be automatically e-mailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account.
  • SchoolMessenger - As an added featured, the system we use to communicate with you through automated e-mails and phone messages also provides parents a secure way to manage and receive information.  This registration process will also allow you to set your preferred method of notifications for emergencies and school notices. Parents must first have a PowerSchool account to register for this system.

Our school no longer automatically prints and mails report cards to parents. Printed report cards are available by requesting one from our school office. 

More information on how to register for secure accounts is available at:
