Dear Dresden School District Parents/Caregivers and Community Members,
We are writing today to invite you to become a part of Circle Up!
Circle Up! is an active parent/caregiver group that works in conjunction with professional community partnerships and the Dresden school community. We host a variety of programs that are designed to address current student concerns and help support the well-being of Dresden students and their families.
Since 2013, Circle Up! has offered almost two dozen community events. These events have ranged from training adults in Youth Mental Health First Aid to evening presentations on growing up in the Digital Age to forums advocating adequate time for lunch. Of special importance to Circle Up! is increasing mental health awareness, reducing substance misuse, teen wellness, suicide prevention and celebrating diversity. We aim to encourage a positive and healthy culture for today’s teens by building protective factors, education, awareness and open dialogue.
As we plan for the 2021-22 school year, we are interested in hearing from the Dresden community. If you would like to receive Circle Up! news or event information, share an idea for a program, or to volunteer any amount of time, please contact us at UVCircleUp@gmail.com. You can also find more information on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/groups/UVCircleUp.
We welcome you to join the audience at our events and to constructively participate at your comfort level. For those interested in additional participation, our event planning meetings are currently on zoom every second Tuesday of the month at 7pm, starting September 14th. Meetings are currently on zoom and can be accessed through this link-
