We will be offering curbside pick-up of library books on alternating Fridays of every month for all virtual students in grades K-5. You can pull up to the south side doors (back entrance) of Dixon between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. to pick-up your orders - Mrs. Foley will meet you at your car. Our curbside schedule for the next two months is as follows:

All District Read Information
An All-District Read is a community-building event in which every family and staff member in school has the opportunity to read the same book aloud at home for a set period of time. Our 4th Annual All District Read will begin on Monday, February 1 for those families that opted in September for either A Boy Called Bat or Crenshaw. Virtual Students will kick off the books with their classroom teachers the week of January 18 and books will be sent home at virtual pick up on Friday, January 22. In person students will kick off the books with their classroom teachers the week of Monday, January 25 and books will go home on Thursday, January 28. Trivia question answers will be announced along with trivia question winners each week. Below you will find the pacing calendars for each book. More information to come about virtual family literacy night and trivia questions for each week!
Last evening (January 12th), the School District of Elmbrook's Board of Education approved adding 4-Year-Old Kindergarten (4K) for the 2021-2022 school year by a vote of 5-2. The 4K offering will be tuition-free and hosted at each District elementary school. Prior to the approval, Elmbrook was one of only five Districts across the state to not offer this half-day, educational program to our community.
Dixon had a record-breaking Spelling Bee this year! Our participant total came to a whopping 35, beating last year's record by 10 participants! Both in-person students and virtual students came together over Zoom to battle through 12 rounds of intense competition over nearly 3 hours! Nolan Scott (1st place) reigned supreme, with Venkat "Arya" Mitta (2nd place) and Charan Karthikeya Anumukonda (3rd place) close behind. This year was also very special as we had an nearly equal number of students across each grade level (3-5). Each and every student worked hard over the past month to improve their spelling skills. We are so proud of everyone!
All we can say is WOW! What an amazing turnout of toys we had in just a couple days! All of these wonderful toys were dropped at the Milwaukee Reserve Center over the weekend and will go out to the distribution center today to be given to families. ️
Thanks to all who participated!
