Principal’s RAMpage v3.23

Feb 7, 2023

Dear Dixon High School Families,
We are on our way with course requests for next school year and preparing for an awesome spring with our seniors.  Here is what is going on:
Scheduling for Next School Year
All of our current 8th-11th graders are preparing their course requests for next school year.  I know it seems early but our master schedule and appropriate staffing is determined by student course requests.  We encourage you to engage fully with your student and seek support if you need it.

  • Our admin team met with all students yesterday to explain the entire process.  Here are some of the documents your student (and families) should be familiar with.  
    • For important general information:  2023-2024 Course Catalog
    • Some important points discussed in our student presentations:

 Things to Remember – Students

    • I have sent a google form for scheduling to all 9th-11th graders and those are due by this Friday, February 10th
  • Students have been asked to do this work WITH YOU!!!  🙂

DHS Winter Ball
The Winter Ball was amazing! Our kids did a great job and it is always nice to see them all dressed up and enjoying an evening together.  Huge thanks to our Leadership class and our PTO for helping get everything organized. Our next fancy dance is the junior prom which tends to be a bigger dance and will be held at the Rancho Solano Clubhouse on Saturday, May 6.  Much more information to come!!
Graduating Class of 2023!
Senior Signs are Coming! DUSD and DHS have the Senior Yard Signs in hand and our staff and PTO will be delivering these to homes on Saturday, March 4 as we kickoff our senior activities.  You just can’t hide, that RAM PRIDE!
Here are some traditional senior celebrations and activities to be aware of.  Remember, we look forward to this every year and can’t wait to honor your students!

  • Senior Yard Signs will be delivered to homes on Saturday, March 4 
  • In late February/Early March, students will have the opportunity to apply for Community Scholarships
  • Our athletic teams continue to celebrate senior athletes at home contests.
  • Award Ceremonies and Senior Nights (beyond athletics) begin in May.
  • Paint the Town Green and other events will take place in May as well.
  • Graduation ceremony for the Class of 2023 is on Saturday, June 3, at 9:00 am in the stadium.
  • Don’t forget to complete your senior’s FAFSA – a significantly “unfun” but very important task.  Beginning this year, every senior in California must complete their FAFSA to earn a diploma so we really recommend you get this done soon.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our counselors for support if needed.  To start, go to
