From The Principal

Happy New Year Dresden Families,

I would like to wish everyone a very happy 2020!  I would like to thank our PTO, the members of our Watch Dog program, and all of our many volunteers that have given their time , effort and resources to the Dresden community .  Without your help, we would not be able to do many of the wonderful things that  make our school a great place for kids.  I would also like to encourage all of our parents to get involved with our school community.

With many cold days in store for us during the next few months, it is important that your child come to school dressed for the weather.  We will be going outside every day that is above 10 degrees, including the wind chill.  Your child will need to bring a coat to school as hoodies do not keep you warm in 10 degree weather.

School begins at 9:00 a.m. We begin our breakfast program at 8:45 a.m. our doors are open for students to enter the building.  We do not have supervision before 8:45 a.m. Please do not drop your child off at school before 8:45 a.m. The same is true with students that are walking to school.  Walkers need to adjust the time they leave house so that they arrive at school after 8:45 a.m.  In the bitter cold, the kind we experience in Michigan winter, children can easily get frostbite.  A child being dropped off and having to wait outside is in danger.  If you must drop off your child before 8:45 a.m. you must utilize our School Age Child Care program.  For information about our School Age Child Care program please call (586) 797-4550 and they will be happy to help you.

If you have any questions or concerns please call or stop by the front office.  Together we will continue to make Dresden a great place to learn!

Here is this month's tips and ideas to help cultivate a love of reading at home.  Remember to designate a "reading time" where the whole family sits down to read.

  • Technology supports and enhances instruction, business operations, research and communications.
  • The Board of Education, district educators/staff, parents, community members and business leaders must collaborate and work as a team to enhance educational opportunities for student success.
