Welcome new 7th grade students and welcome back 8th graders! I am so excited for a new school year to begin at Dixon this fall. All of us are working hard to ensure that this is a remarkable year for every one of our students and parents. We love what we do, and look forward to having all of our students return this week.
A new school year brings with it a lot of feelings: hope, nervousness, excitement, and apprehension. Our staff is ready to meet these challenges and offer a rigorous, yet supportive environment to help all of our students. You will find that our staff is ready to meet and greet our students and provide the encouragement and support needed for a great year.
We are grateful to the Board of Education for allocating some resources to our facility this past year to brighten the atmosphere and address some of the needs of our 85 year old school. Our gymnasium and boys locker room were the most significant improvements. More projects are being planned to ensure that our school is as exceptional as our attitude.
It is my hope that you too will find that Dixon is an extraordinary place where great things happen every day. We may not be perfect, but I assure you that we will proactively assist every student and respond to any needs or concerns that arise.
Best Wishes for a great school year!
