    Announcement

     

    • Students had an opportunity to attend a fun-filled, hilarious assembly this week with Barry Mitchell. Prater arranged for the performance.  Mr. Mitchell thrilled the students with his humor and magic tricks.  Please ask your students what they thought of the assembly. 
    • We had an amazing turn out for our Multicultural Night on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 from 5:30-7:00. All grade levels performed and shared their work.  It was a wonderful, well-attended evening.  I would guess that we had more than 500 people attend this event!  It was great to see so many families enjoying the performances, Chinese food, and the children’s projects.  The students did an amazing job on their projects this year.
    • We are nearing the end of 3rd It is time to begin scheduling parent/teacher conferences for the spring.   
    • Our Title 1 Family Survey is online. We would love to hear your input regarding how we are doing to serve our students and families.  We cannot improve if we do not receive feedback.  Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey online.  I have attached the link here:

    • Please be sure that your child has been vaccinated against Hepatitis A.  This is a district requirement.  We have sent out several notices regarding the vaccine. 

    Staff Spotlight

    This week I would like to highlight our new part-time Social Worker, Dana Adams   Dana has worked in Fayette County Public Schools for 17 years as a FRYSC.  Being a school Social Worker is something she was inspired to be.  She feels that young people face so many challenges today that she wanted to have the opportunity to assist students and their families.  She graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Master’s degree in Social Work and received her School Social Worker Certification and CSW certification.  She is currently pursuing her LCSW certification.  Dana grew up on a farm in Southeastern Kentucky, but has called Lexington home for the past 25 years.  She is married to Jonathan, has a Golden Doodle Ollie, two sons and two stepdaughters and four grandsons with another due in July.  She enjoys spending time with family and friends, doing cross fit, going to church events, and working on mission trips.  Please welcome Dana to our Dixie family. 

    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.
