Inspire Excellence in Education [May 9, 2016]

Dixie's Got Talent!

It was amazing to see our students perform during the Talent Show! They took a chance and were courageous as they stood in front of the crowd. Let's now forget our teachers too! Thanks to our specials team for organizing the talent show and to our teacher dance group for the quick fun dance performance. They only practiced twice! (video: https://www.facebook.com/dixietylerisd/ ) As we face STAAR this week, it truly takes everyone working together to ensure the success of our students. I am so proud of the progress we have made.. Let's finish strong!
