Dryden Community Window Walks!

If you’d like to participate in our Dryden Community’s Neighborhood Window Walk/Bike/Drive, all you need to do is place the item of the day in your window or on your door. Get as creative as you like, but nothing fancy required – just the desire to connect, safely from afar, with our Dryden community.

Here’s the schedule:
March 29th: Flowers or bugs
April 1: Funny lawn displays (decorate your lawn white those old flamingos, lawn chairs, Halloween decor, whatever you’ve got!)
April 4: Easter Eggs or Bunnies

Donuts with a grown up – CANCELED!

Canceled Stamp - Red Grunge Seal. Rubber stamp isolated on white background.
Originally, Donuts With a Grown Up was scheduled for Thursday, April 2, and Movie Night was scheduled for April 9. In response to the recent Coronavirus concerns, Dryden Elementary PTA is following the direction of both the Arlington Heights Council of PTAs and District 25 and cancelling activities that host more than 250 people. We are hoping to reschedule these events later in the school year. In the meantime, we hope you can enjoy a sweet treat and movie with your families at home!

Soccer Collection for kids in need!

We are collecting new and used soccer equipment for kids participating in ESCO’s community outreach soccer programs. The youth in these programs do not have the means to play organized soccer let alone afford the necessary equipment. ITEMS NEEDED: Soccer equipment for kids in grades 2-5 (soccer cleats, shin guards, and size 4 soccer balls). ESCO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in Arlington Heights. For more information about ESCO visit http://www.elitesoccercommunity.org or follow on Facebook and Instagram @SupportESCO.

Tennis Club @ Dryden!

We are excited to announce that Tennis Club is coming to Dryden thanks to our PTA! If your child would like to participate (no experience or equipment needed!), be on the look out for a time-stamped sign up form on Monday, March 16th at 9 a.m. Tennis Club will take place on Mondays starting April 6 during lunch recess. There is limited space for Tennis Club, so there will only be 20 spots for each lunch recess. The PTA looks forward to sharing this wonderful sport with your children! If you have any questions, please reach out to Stacey Nunez at snunez77@comcast.net.
