Schools, annexation

This week's Dryden Courier takes a look at Dryden Superintendent Mark Crawford's first year. A few of the key points are the formalizing of the HANDS program, creating an after-school program at Cassavant Elementary School, and the recent passage of the budget on the first vote. Crawford is also holding regular meetings with the faculty and staff meetings, and starting a program of 20 minutes silent reading at the start of the school day.

There's also a report on the hearing the Town and Village of Dryden boards held jointly last week, discussing the addition of a nine by three hundred foot parcel on the Village's eastern edge. It would bring a complete set of property Paul Simonet hopes to develop into the Village. It doesn't sound like it was very controversial.

There's an article on TC3's new media classes, combining computers, video, and graphic design from web pages to DVD creation. There's also a report on awards handed out to TC3 faculty, staff, and students during commencement, and a discussion of the commencement address given by TC3 graduate Dr. Isaac Unah.

In sports, there's an article on Dryden's Section IV Class B championship in both boys and girls track, as well as a piece on their first-round loss in the baseball sectional playoffs. There are two baseball photos from Dryden, one of Corey Hollenbeck and one of Josh Sterling.
