Lead In Water Testing
The health and safety of all students and staff is the top priority for DeKalb County School District. Recent events have brought national attention to water quality issues. Though we have absolutely no evidence of water quality issues in any school or building, we want to ensure that our water is safe for consumption. With this in mind, we are proactively testing the drinking water in each of our 150 schools, centers, and facilities. As directed by Superintendent Dr. R. Stephen Green and the DeKalb County Board of Education, testing will begin on September 20, 2016 and be completed by the summer of 2017.

19th Annual Read Across America

Join us for our Nineteenth Annual Celebration of Read Across America on March 2, 2017. This is the biggest one-day literacy celebration in the U.S. Read Across America day was started to honor Dr. Theodore Geisel, better known to millions as Dr. Seuss, on his birthday. This year would have been his 113th birthday!

For the nineteenth year, the National Education Association (NEA) is the primary sponsor of this wonderful reading event. We hope it will help to motivate children to read the way the late Dr. Seuss did. Supporting NEA are 50 national organizations including Target, the NAACP, the American Library Association, the National PTA, and the YMCA.

Here at Dresden Elementary, we have had the pleasure of welcoming U.S. Representative Johnny Isaacson, Former State Superintendent Linda Schrenko, and our Superintendent of the DeKalb County School District, Dr. R. Stephen Green, to read to our children. DeKalb County School Administrators, Dresden Partners in Education, AT&T, Everybody Wins, Dunwoody Rotary Club, and friends of Dresden’s staff members, have continuously supported us.

Thank You Dresden Elementary Foundation and Parents!
Wednesday, January 4, 2017, the Dresden Elementary Foundation sponsored a delcious welcome back breakfast for our staff. Thank you foundation members and parent volunteers for all you do for our staff!
