Welcome to the Dryden Middle School website.
|A team of administrators, teachers, coaches, and club advisors/directors have worked together to create an extra-curricular code of conduct. Please click this link to review the proposed extra-curricular code of conduct. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please email Ms. Abigail Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
On April 22, 2013, at the recommendation of Superintendent Sandy Sherwood, the Board of Education approved the following two changes to this year's calendar:
1) The Board approved extending the Memorial Day holiday weekend by closing school on Friday, May 24th as we had an unused emergency closing day.
2) The Board also approved making Tuesday, June 18th and Wednesday, June 19th as half-days (with lunch served) for all K-5 students. This is in alignment with what we have done in past years. Please note that Thursday, June 20th is already designated as half-day for K-5 (with no lunch served).
The month of June marks the end of the 2012-13 school year at Dryden Middle School. The last day of classes for all MS students will be Monday, June 10th. The final marking period (MP6) ends on Thursday, June 20th and report cards will be mailed home on Friday, June 28th.
- Monday, June 10th Last Day of Classes for all MS Students
- Tuesday, June 11th LOTE Proficiency for 8th grade students
- Wednesday, June 12th Integrated Algebra Regents Exam
- Monday, June 17th 8th Grade Trip to Hershey Park
- Thursday, June 20th 6MP Ends for MS Students
- Friday, June 21st HS Graduation at the Stadium
I want to personally thank you for all of your support during this first year as the Acting Principal at Dryden Middle School. In one short year, I have learned a great deal about what makes the Dryden Community a truly special place for our students and one of which I am proud to now be a part of.
Have a great summer!
John P. Birmingham, Principal
