The Dixie Magnet Elementary PTA is excited to announce our first ever Dixie Dolphin Read-A-Thon Fundraiser! We want all our students to develop a love or reading for pleasure, for knowledge, and for adventure. We are launching a new fundraiser that not only supports our school, but also supports each student's personal reading development goal. Starting Monday, October 4th , you can register your child to get their FREE Panda Express Kids meal and be ready to get donations and start reading on the 11th. Sponsors will be pledging a flat donation (not minute based) to help support our students at Dixie. During this time, students will also be getting their reading minutes in and parents will be logging those minutes into FundHub.
