Hi Families!

I would like to provide an update and some essential details regarding Dixon's choir program for the 2019-2020 school year. This year, choir rehearsals will be held on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 8:00am - 8:30am. Students are able to come to the music room as early as 7:45am. Choir is open to both 4th & 5th grade students, and is completely optional. Your student may still participate in band or orchestra in addition to choir! Woohoo! In the coming weeks, I will be sending out a ride-sharing forum to connect families that would like their student to attend choir, but may find it challenging to get their child to Dixon those mornings. Concert dates will be shared soon as well, along with more details regarding what to expect during the first week of school. Please feel free to reach out before school starts with questions: swensonc@elmbrookschools.org

Thanks so much for promoting music in our district!


Mr. Swenson

Students at Dixon Walk for CancerDixon's Cancer Walk was a HUGE success!  Currently, we have raised over $6,900 for the American Cancer Society.  Thank you to all of the Dixon students and families for your support of this special event. I would like to recognize our top 5 fundraisers as : Jackson and Callen Suttle for raising $125 each. Zoey Schilz raising $212. Amelia Lamb raising $500 and Charlotte Steiner raising $2125.  The classroom that will be earning the extra art time for most money raised is Mrs. Schubert's class.  I am so proud of all of the Dixon students and family members that were able to join us in the walk. Dixon is an amazing and caring community. Thank you so much!
