    Announcement 

    • Great news! We continue to increase our number of parent contacts at Dixie.  Last year we recorded 18,579 parent contacts through e-mail, phone calls, face-to-face, and Class Dojo.  That was an increase of 7,000!  Well for the 2018-19 school year, we have done it again.  We have increased our parent contacts to        25,950.  That is another 7,000 increase!  Please thank your child’s teacher for maintaining such open lines of communication with you. 
    • I just want to thank all of our parents and guardians for a successful KPREP week! Our students came to school ready and prepared to take the test.  The students worked hard and put forth their best effort.  I am so proud of our Dixie students!  We have finished all of our testing for now other than make-up testing. 
    • If you have volunteered at Dixie, please join us for a special Volunteer Breakfast on Monday, May 20, 2019 at 9:00. If you have spent any time volunteering, we would love to have you join us. 
    • Please join us for a special evening, on May 23, 2019 as our 5th graders perform in Shrek Jr. These students have been working extremely hard on this production.  It will be an amazing performance based on the sneak peeks I have been given!  We hope you will be able to attend. 
    • Please be sure to check out the dates and times of the special grade level programs for your children. I have listed all of these events to the right. 
    • Reminders:

    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.  We are still finding students who have not been vaccinated. 

     

    • Volunteer Spotlight

      This week I would like to highlight one of our amazing volunteers, Ruth Willoughby   Ruth currently has a son Maxwell who is in Ms. Gray’s kindergarten classroom.  She has been busy volunteering in Kindergarten, doing whatever Ms. Gray asks.  Ms. Willoughby is not only giving of her time, she is quite generous as well, providing treats for all of the kindergarten students and lunch for the staff.  She is a wonderful member of our Dixie community.  I wanted to let her know how much we appreciate all that she does for Dixie.  If you see Ruth, please thank her for her time.    

       

    Staff Spotlight

    This week I would like to highlight our amazing art teacher Rachel LoschRachel provided us with an excellent start to our spring break by organizing an amazing Arts Day on the Friday before.  I have enjoyed Arts Day every year that I have been at Dixie, but I think this one was the best.  The kids were so excited for the day.  The activities were all excellent hands-on, engaging lessons.  The students really enjoyed everything about the day.  I heard great feedback from the staff as well.  I know the tremendous effort that goes into organizing an event such as this, and I cannot thank Rachel enough. 

    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.
