2nd Grade & Multi-Age Musical


2nd Graders & Multi-Age students, it’s your time to shine! Mr Deptula has another wonderful musical planned for our kids. He can’t do it all himself, and will need help with a variety of tasks! There is something for everyone! Please see the attached link below for the sign up genius. We would prefer to have our Dryden families help out the evening of the performance so the parents of the 2nd grade & Multi-Age students can sit back & enjoy their child’s performance.

ABC/25: Be a Part of Something Great!
Ever wonder where those Osmos, BeeBots, Maker carts and Lego Walls came from? Grants made possible by the ABC/25 Foundation!

The ABC/25 Foundation is a non-for-profit organization founded by a group of caring parents to give “A Better Community” to students and staff of District 25 by fostering innovation, creativity and excellence in our schools. Over the past 24 years, the foundation has raised and contributed over one million dollars to fund numerous projects and grants for District 25 which directly impact students and teachers!

Are you a member of the ABC/25 Foundation? If not, you’re missing out on an amazing way to support the D25 schools! Proceeds from the $40 family memberships go directly to fund grants that allow D25 teachers and staff to access tools and resources that aren’t available through curriculum budgets. Learn more about the wonderful things ABC/25 is doing in our community at www.abc25.org and become a member here! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Gina Faso at gmfaso@yahoo.com.

Each year, the ABC/25 Foundation grants $2,500 to all District 25 schools when 25% of the school’s families become members! Become a member today by clicking on this link!
