Quiet Active Reading

Miss Cipriano's class practices active reading in the hallway at Driggs School.  Everyday when the class uses the bathroom and gets drinks, they take their silent reading book with them. Nice reading fourth graders!

Reading is GREAT!

One of Mrs. Blake's second graders reads a BIG book in the hallway during the first few weeks of school!  We love seeing active reading and great SOAR behavior at Driggs School!

The NED Show

The NED Show combinesd a positive message with humor, storytelling, audience participation, and memorable object lessons like yo-yo and magic tricks.  The assembly teaches classes how they can develop three valuable charactertstics to become CHAMPIONS at school and in life...


Students can purchase yo-yos all week at school.  The prices range from $4-$15.  The money that we raise at Driggs school will be used to send the NED show to another worthy school, just like how the NED show came to Driggs.
