Our 3rd graders ended the year by helping save 4 endangered animals by adopting them! The students were passionate about bringing awareness to these animals. Each student selected an animal, compiled research and worked together to write a book thanks to Matthew Wood and UPS. All the money raised was donated to the World Wildlife Fund. The students’ goal throughout this project was to encourage others to be mindful of our impact on the world and animals around us. Fayette County Public Schools

Our families and PTA are spoiling us this week!!

In case you missed it - here is our Teacher Appreciation Week schedule.

For Wednesday - you can send in flowers (real, drawn, crafted) for teachers and staff

For Thursday - we love to shower our teachers with gifts! You can make a card, buy or make a gift - anything that spreads joy!

And you can still send in teacher snacks as we'll be restocking the table!


We are in search of local businesses that may want to partner with Dixie to support PBL. Drop the name of a business or contact in the comments!


No playground? No problem!

For those who don’t know, we’re getting a brand new accessible playground! Flexibility is the name of the game, so we’re finding other ways to have fun at recess. 😅

Our kindergarten students were super impressed when our custodian, Ms. Becky, joined in the fun at recess and showed off her hula hooping skills! 🥰
