Donations Needed for Senior Walk!

Hello, Dryden families and Staff!

On Thursday, May 23rd, an exciting new tradition will begin at Dryden! Mrs. Sessler has invited former Dryden Dolphin high school Seniors to come back to Dryden to walk the halls while the current students and staff cheer them on and celebrate their graduation. It promises to be an inspiring occasion for all!

After the Seniors walk the halls, we will have a short presentation and treats. We are hoping that you will kindly consider donating some of the snacks. Please bring your donations to the Dryden office by Wednesday, May 22nd. You can click on the Sign Up Genius link here to sign up:

Thank you so much for your generosity!

***The people who agree to assist with the lights and sound (attending at least 1 rehearsal and 1 performance) will each receive 1 front row seat to their child’s musical performance next year!!!***

Thanks so much,
