Dryden staff delivers gifts to educators

DRYDEN — In honor of Teachers Appreciation Week, May 4-8, Dryden Community Schools’ Lori Hall shared how staff showed appreciation for their teachers over several days last week.

“The Elementary Secretary, former Elementary Secretary, our Cardinal Mascot, and myself delivered homemade cookies and goodies to teachers houses, from Sterling Heights to Capac to Swartz Creek, Clarkston to Dryden,” said Hall, who’s the high school/superintendent secretary.

“We delivered to 28 teachers across 5 counties. It took us a total of 8 hours on Friday and 3 hours on Wednesday. We had so much fun.”

Hall said she’s proud to be a district employee and loved showing the teachers how much
they are missed and appreciated by their coworkers and the community.

“We love and appreciate our Dryden teachers so very much. They go above and beyond for our students every day. They have embraced this challenging time and have excelled at online teaching. Our small town of Dryden is lucky to have such amazing teachers and administrators,” Hall concluded.

Teachers’ pictures and details about their careers in education have been posted on the district’s social media accounts in honor of the appreciation week too, letting parents, students and others share their gratitude too.
