4th/5th Grade Volleyball Night


4th and 5th Grade Volleyball Night: Thursday, March 5 from 6:45-8:30pm

The PTA sponsored Volleyball Night is an event for all Dryden 4th and 5th grade students. No volleyball experience is required as our volunteer coaches will teach the basics of the game and ensure that all attending students have the opportunity to play. Mixed gender/grade teams will be formed by the PTA in an effort to keep the games competitive. Registered students will be given their team assignments at check in. This is always a fun night for our students, so please encourage them to attend and give volleyball a try!

The registration deadline is Monday, February 24, 2020. To register your child, volunteer to help, and to read more details, click on the blue registration link below:

Everyone is welcome to join us at our next PTA meeting on 2/26, 7pm. Dr. Bein, District 25 Superintendent, will be speaking on bullying: what it is and isn’t, how to talk to your child about it, and how District 25 is working against it.

Parents Night Out


Save the date and secure your sitters for this year’s second annual Dryden Parent’s Night Out!

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!

Dryden Innovation Lab – Donations Needed!

Innovation Lab Website

The Innovation Lab in the LMC is now open for business! This will be a space that can be used by all classes and individual students interested in building and/or designing as a part of their Personalized Learning and/or classroom work. We are still in need of some items in order to make this space everything we are hoping it will be. Please send the items to school labeled Innovation Lab LMC and we will put them to use! Feel free to send in supplies throughout the year as you come across them- they will always be welcome. Thank you in advance for your supply donations!
