    • Thank you to our families and our PTA.  Because of your support, the PTA raised more than $10,000 through the Sprout fundraiser.  All of this money goes to support programs at Dixie for your children.  The children also enjoyed all of the wellness activities offered by Sprout including: an obstacle course, Dance Blue, golf, and meditation to name a few.   I am sure your children were as tired as I was after this fun-filled day yesterday!  If your child collected donations, please be on the lookout for an email regarding when prizes will be awarded and the date of the pajama/hat day.

    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.
