    Announcements

          • Come to pre-school registration! You may sign up daily at Dixie between February 5-22 from 9:00-1:00, and on February 12 from 5:00-7:00.  Please come and register your child for pre-school.  You may also register magnet students at this time.  Go online at the FCPS Website to fill out the application!

          • The Book Fair will be held the week of February 25-29, 2019. Just to give you an idea of the impact this has on our students’ lives, last year 2,232 books were purchased at the Book Fair.  That equals 405,000 reading minutes from the purchase of books!

          • This is a reminder that you may not drop students off at the school before 7:15. It is not safe to leave your children waiting outside of the building without supervision.   Also, please do not drop students off in the street.  This leads to students crossing the road in the middle of traffic and this is not safe.   Please follow the correct car lane procedures and drop your child off as you go through the car lane between 7:15 and 7:45 a.m..  We have had several parents not following the rules this year, leaving their children by the back or side doors or dropping them off on the side of the road.  This is a safety hazard for your children, and creates a safety hazard for others.  Please follow the rules so that we can keep all of our students safe.

          • We have been working hard to move your children academically.  If we have inclement weather days, feel free to provide your child with some time to read, or use some of our many computer programs.  Children are welcome to use these at home.  They may access their Imagine Learning, Reading Plus, Kahn Academy, Dreambox, Reflex Math, Lexia as well as others at any time outside the school day.  This provides your child with an educational way to practice reading and math.

    Senator Thomas Visits Dixie Elementary

    Senator Thomas Speaking with the 5th Grade  Mr. Thomas  Senator Thomas Talking to the Children  

    On February 12th, Senator Thomas met with the 5th grade class at Dixie Elementary.  Upon entering he was greeted by four OMAC (Operation Making a Change) members and was escorted to the library where he spoke to the classes.  During this time, he shared his personal educational journey, which included attending Bryan Station High School, Dartmouth College, and Harvard Law School.  Students researched Senator Thomas’ life and were well prepared for the Q and A session that ensued.  Senator Thomas encouraged Dixie students to take full advantage of their education and reminded them to not let obstacles stand in their way, sharing, “There’s no such thing as good luck.  Luck equals preparation, plus opportunity.”  Dixie students were also invited to the State House to be a Page in his office during this legislative session.  His visit to Dixie concluded with a student lead tour of the building and him leaving the students two books, one about Kentucky facts, and the other The Legislative Process.
