Dixon Elementary is part of an exemplary district and our goal is to create and sustain a culture that fosters student engagement and ensures the academic, emotional, social, physical, and creative development of each child. We are proud of our offerings, some include: Art Club, Intramurals, DARE, Student Council, Band, Orchestra, Chorus, Spanish and French Clubs.
Every Student is Successful
We work to ensure that all students become successful, high-level readers, writers, speakers, and listeners, adopt strategies to build students’ conceptual understanding of mathematics, provide the basics of scientific inquiry, and ensure students are rounded in music and the arts. The curriculum focuses on research-based methods and utilizing the best technology.
Opportunity & Excellence
Students at Dixon Elementary have the opportunity to participate in an array of co-curricular opportunities, ranging from orchestra, chorus, and band to athletics, student council, science, and forensics. There really is something for every student.
Family Engagement is Key
Parents and families are central to Dixon Elementary, and are one of the reasons for our school’s continued success. Parents are encouraged to participate in the PTO and get involved with various school and district projects, committees, and groups.

As we look to add new families to our building, we will again be looking for new families to "adopt" an incoming family. This would entail giving a new family your phone and email so they could contact you with questions. Let me know if you are interested in helping new families and being added to our list email@example.com

For today's Dixon Day of Design, our class worked on planning, designing and building structures for play animals. Each child chose their animal and their building materials. We learned that adjustments often need to be made from the original plans--and that's OKAY! We learn and grow from our mistakes.
First graders created a model for the most organized locker using design thinking on the Dixon Global Day of Design.
Second grade students used designed thinking to create a bridge made of gumdrops, water and toothpicks. They tested their bridges to see how much weight they could hold. This was in correlation with the National Global Day of Design.
