Principal’s RAMpage v3.31

Apr 18, 2023

Dear Dixon High School Families,
First and foremost, thank you!  Our students are not only doing a great job with assessments but they are showing up early, working hard, and communicating with staff in such a positive way.  You Can’t Hide That Ram Pride!  
Here are some things to keep in mind and get on those calendars:
CAASPP Testing and i-Ready Update
Again, we are so proud of how ready our students are to engage fully in assessments.  Tomorrow is a regular short Wednesday and on Thursday and Friday, our 10th graders will take their i-Ready Diagnostic while the 11th graders complete their CAASPP Tests.  Our food service is still available with breakfast before testing and again, before 0 period for any and all students.  Here is the schedule for this week:  DHS CAASPP TESTING BELL SCHEDULE

AP Testing
Our students in AP classes will be sitting for those exams between May 1 and May 12.  

Prom is Coming Up
The 2023 Prom is coming up on Friday, May 5 at the Rancho Solano Country Club.  This is a beautiful venue that is perfect for a fancy dance.  Tickets will be sold all next week, with upper classmen (11th and 12th graders) pre-sales this Friday.  Tickets cost $65 each.  Buy tickets early as this dance tends to sell out.
