From The Principal

Our year has been wonderful and we are all looking forward to summer vacation.  Time to spend with family, relax, catch up on reading, and enjoy the warm weather!

Summer learning will look a little bit different this year.  We are sending home grade appropriate packets with each student along with tracking calendars and suggested book lists.  Just bring the completed packet back in September to earn a reward.

Please see our June newsletter for the suggested supply list for the 2018-19 school year.

Have a great summer!
Upcoming Events:
June 4th: Field Day
June 12th: Talent Show 6:30
June 13th: Staff vs 6th Grade kickball game 2:00

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:
