    Announcements:

    • Next week we will be celebrating Read Across America Week. We will also hold our Book Fair. Please help your children dress up based on our themes throughout the week.  I’ve attached the flier to this newsletter for further information.
    • We will be holding our Multicultural Night next Tuesday, February 27, 2018 from 5:30-7:30. Please see the flier below for further details.  You are in for a treat.  The students have created some amazing projects to go along with the evening events. 
    • We would love volunteers to help clean the booths we have purchased for the cafeteria. We need help daily between 8-10 and 12:30-2:30.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Cheri Presley at 859-381-3116 or e-mail her at: cheri.presley@fayette.kyschools.us
    • If you have not registered for kindergarten yet, but still need to do so, please contact our Registrar, Deborah Lancaster at 859-381-3116. She will help get you registered. 
    • We would like to make you aware of a change in immunizations requirements for the 2018-19 school year. Students will need proof of having at least 1 Hepatitis A shot prior to starting school in the fall. Hepatitis A is a series of 2 immunizations that can be given as early as 6 months apart. 

    Reminders:

    Don’t forget to have you children here early enough to have breakfast.  Also, be sure you are on time to school.  We are arriving at a time in the school year when tardies begin to accumulate.  It is important to get your child to school on-time, every 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.
