Principal’s RAMpage v3.32

Apr 26, 2023

Dear Dixon High School Families,
Wow!  Spring has definitely sprung and our community is fully engaged in our journey toward the end of the year and graduation for the Class of 2023. 
Here are some things to keep in mind to support your student and some events to get on those calendars:

CAASPP Testing and i-Ready Update
Those of us lucky enough to work with our community’s students every day are always so excited to see our students shine!  And, they didn’t disappoint with assessments – an important measure of our journey toward our mission of graduating students that are adequately prepared for any and all post-secondary plans.  Your kids showed up!!!!  They were on time.  They worked hard.  They bonded with staff.  They showed great character.  And they really performed!  Please remind them that I am so proud to be their principal!

Important Attendance Reminder
If your student is returning from an absence, arriving to school late (excused or unexcused), or returning from an appointment, please make sure they check in at the attendance desk in the office so we can accurately note their attendance.  If they don’t do this, their absences will become truancies in Aeries and we don’t want that to happen for them.  

Important Information from Dixon Police Department Regarding E-Scooters
Officer Malone wants all students and families who use E-Scooters to be aware of the laws and regulations surrounding their use.  If your student has access to an E-Scooter, please read this language from The City of Folsom as our city follows the same rules of the road:
E-Scooter Laws and Regulations

AP Testing
Our students in AP classes will be sitting for those exams between May 1 and May 12.  If you have a student taking any AP test, please read through this information from our counseling department:AP Testing Info from DHS Counseling

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 through the end of this week or until we sell out.  Tickets cost $65 each.
