Spreading Cheer to the Community

The Varsity Cheerleaders recently did a trash pick-up in the community.  The girls volunteered three hours of their Saturday and covered over 5 miles of the area roadways, picking up whatever trash they could find.  Ultimately, they filled 12 huge bags with their findings, leaving Dryden a more beautiful place.  Nice work ladies!

Yatsko Honored For Track Exploits

Junior Abbey Yatsko was honored at the June 22nd Board of Education meeting in a presentation by ESPN Ithaca. Abbey was named Athlete of the Week three separate times during the winter and spring track seasons. She has had an amazing year on the track, breaking four school records between the two seasons, leaving her with 10 different school records in her career. In addition to being honored, three separate $50 donations were made in her honor to the Dryden Sports Boosters. Way to go Abbey!

Athletics is an integral part of a student’s education. It has an obligation/goal of developing skills that will enable our young women and men to be successful in life. Skills such as leadership, teamwork, character, poise, discipline, loyalty, mental toughness, physical conditioning, hard work and school pride are not only by-products of participation in our program but also a shared vision by our coaching staff and Board of Education.

A majority of Dryden students participate in interscholastic athletics. Dryden has traditionally boasted its share of championship teams and all-star players. However, such measures of success are the outcome, rather than the primary goal, of the athletic program.
