  Happy Holidays Dresden Families,  

As we enter the holiday season it is important to take the time to reflect  and cherish the many wonderful things and amazing people that we have in our lives.  To say that this year has been difficult and ever changing is the understatement of the year.  With all the uncertainties the one true constant that we all share has been the strength of our Dresden community.  Through all the changes that we have been forced to make since September, the Dresden community has stayed focused on working together to provide the best educational experience for our children that we can.  Together we have made the best of a bad situation.

Of course, we want our children back in school for face to face instruction.  Of course, we all understand that children learn best when they are here with their teachers.  We know this and we all want this.  Personally, I cannot wait to greet our children in the morning as they enter our building.  But, as we know, this simply is not possible right now given our current circumstances.  So, until the time comes when we can all be together again, we will all continue to persevere and do our best.

I encourage all of our parents to remain involved in your child(ren)'s education.  Make sure that they are online ready for class.  Make sure that they are completing their studies and participating in their learning.  By doing do you will help your child(ren) find success.  If there is something you do not understand or something your child may need extra help with, reach out to your child's teacher or myself.  We are all here to help.

I would like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season!
