Our annual Global Field Days are Thursday, May 11th for grades K-2 and Friday, May 12 for grades 3-5. Please send your child dressed appropriately on these days; have them wear loose, comfortable clothing (that may get dirty), TENNIS SHOES, socks, and please apply sunscreen. Students are welcome to wear hats and sunglasses on these days as well and are encouraged to bring a WATER BOTTLE.

The events will begin at 10 am. There will be an hour lunch break and the afternoon events will resume at approximately 12:45-1:00. Family members are welcome and encouraged to attend!

THE ANNUAL AUTHORS SHOWCASE

James Patterson, David Baldacchi… have nothing on Dixon Elementary. The Onslow County Authors’ Showcase will be held on May 26, 2017. Dixon students Alivia Nokes, Marilyn Martin, Michael Westall, Meredith Fleming, Rodrigo Mattioli , Natalie Bushek and Savannah Jones will be recognized at that time. Their writing will be compiled into a book that you can access through the Library.

ONSLOW COUNTY SPEECH CONTEST

April was the month to share “What It Means to Be a Hero.” The annual Woodsmen of the Year speech contest was held, showcasing 13 Dixon Elementary 5th grade students who won their classroom contests. April 26 found McKenzie Tomlinson and Hannah Oakes representing Dixon in the Level II speech contest at the County Office. McKenzie will now move on to the Level III contest to be held May 9th at Blue Creek Elementary. Congratulations to all the Dixon winners and good luck to McKenzie!

CHILD ABUSE AWARENESS MONTH

April was recognized as “Child Abuse Awareness” month. Dixon supported the Partnership for Children’s campaign in which pinwheels were displayed in front of the building for the month. The Honor Society undertook this event.
