Resources for Dixie Families
A list of resources for Dixie families can be found on the resources link on the top of the page. We will keep this updated with items that could be useful to Dixie Dolphin Families, there are currently videos on mental health, being kind, yoga sessions for adults and children as well as other resources that may be useful to Dixie Families!
Sometimes we forget to thank the people that mean the most to us or the people who are there for us and help us everyday! We want to make sure everyone gets the thanks they deserve so we are doing Thankful Thursdays! Every Thursday from Thanksgiving until winter break we will be reminding you to be thankful for the people in your life. We love our Dixie family so we will be focusing on them, but you can thank anyone in your life, just by letting them know how much they mean to you! Remember, you can show the staff at Dixie how much you appreciate them all year long with our Hugs and High Fives!
Dixie Virtual Hugs and High Fives Program
Do you have a teacher that you want to appreciate? A student at home who wishes they could give their teachers a big hug or a high five? One of our fantastic PTA members suggested a way to give positive feedback for our awesome Dixie teachers and staff. Starting today we are launching the Virtual Hugs and High Fives Program. Just fill out this form to submit a response and let our teachers know how much you appreciate them. Submissions will be posted on social media and on the read the hugs and high fives page so everyone can see that the Dixie teachers and staff are amazing.
