*Announcements to be read to students during Advisory each morning. (Last page is for Staff only!)



  • If you are interested in being a part of Student Leadership, please see Mrs. Arias! This is a great way to get involved with our school and community and is a great way to earn community service hours! The first meeting of the year will be after school – please report to the main office!


  • If you are a Senior interested in transferring back to Dixon HS for the Spring semester, please see Mrs. Arias right away!


  • There is a mandatory Back to School Night this Thursday from 6:00-7:00 – please make sure your parent/guardian attends!!


  • Remember that 3 tardies = 1 absence, 6 absences = minus .5 credit and 12 absences = minus 1 credit. Be sure you are working hard to earn all 5 credits in all your classes. And don’t forget that you MUST earn 3 credits in order to earn any at all! Come on and get those credits done!




Students must earn at least 3.0 credits in order to earn a passing letter grade. Students who do not earn at least 3.0 credits will fail the course, receive an F, and become ineligible for credits.”
