From The Principal

Greeting Dresden Families,

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 must share.

Winter weather is here and will be here for sometime.  As long as it 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.

On December 13th the Dresden PTO will be sponsoring "Dresden Family Movie Night".  The movie will begin at 6:30 PM sharp.  Doors will open at 6:00 PM.  The movie will be shown in the gym.  You will need to bring chairs, blankets, or pillows to sit on.  Our feature film will "The Grinch".  It will be a fun event and I hope to see everyone here in attendance.

Please remind your students to check the lost and found for any missing items.  Any items left on December 20th will be donated over the break.

To help make reading a part of your family time, we will be creating a monthly newsletter featuring helpful tips and resources .  Please click the link to access:

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season.

Principal Bradley Suggs
