From The Principal

I am excited to start my seventh year as principal at Dresden.  I love our Dresden community and feel proud and blessed to be able to be a part of it.  We are in our 3rd year of the Leader in Me initiative and continue to live the seven habits through our everyday actions as a school community.  Our journey continues as we really put our habits to the test with our responsibilities to our academic achievement.  Hard work, making good choices, and seeing the big picture when things get challenging will be important for a successful school year.

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: http://uticak12.org/studentinfocenter
