Greetings Dresden Families,

Happy Holidays!  The holiday season is the perfect time of the year to take a break from our busy schedules, take a deep breath, and think about the many wonderful things that encompass us all.  It is a time to reflect and to be grateful for all that we have and for all the people who make a positive difference in our lives.

I am very thankful to our staff , our students, and the Dresden commununity  members who work together to provide positive opportunities for all of our stakeholders.  These last few year have been hard on everyone.  It fills me with hope and joy to see so many individuals coming together for the good of our community and students.  On behalf of the Dresden community, I cannot thank you enough for your hard work and dedication.

It's back...Winter weather is here and will be here for some time.   As long as it is above 10 degrees, we will be going outside for recess.  Please keep this in mind when you send your child off to school.  Coats, hats, gloves, scarves, and boots need to be worn to protect your child from the elements.  In the event that the temperature does fall below 10 degrees, we will be having inside recess.

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season.


With much respect,
Principal Bradley Suggs
