2016 Summer Send off!
Dear Dixie Families,
First, let me wish our graduating Class of 2016 a wonderful summer and bright future! You are all officially my last graduating class! I’m so filled with gratitude for so many things. My time in the Dixie District, and here at Dixie School, has been tremendously rewarding. I want to thank the students, staff and parent community for making my retirement so sweet.
My sincere thanks to my parent leaders and friends at the DHSC and CanDo! Your volunteerism and unwavering support of ALL kids make our school a very special place!
I leave knowing that Dixie School is in good hands and that the Dixie Community will continue to make this a distinguished school for years to come. Finally, enjoy summer and I encourage you to check the Dixie School Website (not too soon:) for information on the start of the 2016-17 school year.
Much aloha, Mr. J
PS- I know that you will all welcome Mr. Jason Manviller in the fall as he joins Dixie School as the new principal!
Remember to visit the Dixie School Website at (http://www.dixieschool.com) often for the latest in news and information. You are also encouraged to follow us on Twitter @DixieElementary for all the latest learning, photos, and activities!
