Family contacts

Great news! We continue to increase our number of parent contacts at Dixie.  Last year we recorded 18,579 parent contacts through email, 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. 

Health reminder

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 WilloughbyRuth 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.
