The PTA is also excited to celebrate our soon-to-be DOLPHIN GRADUATES!! Families who have a current fifth grade student are invited to swing through the drive-by event on 4/22, from 5-7pm to pickup a yard sign for your fifth grader. There will be a station for yard sign pickup. Pull up, pop your trunk open and a PTA volunteer will place your sign in your trunk. We are so proud of the resiliency, dedication and positivity these students have shown their final year at Dryden!
*Student names will not be displayed on the signs.
