Dads, Take Your Child to School Day

Dads you are invited to bring your child to school, enjoy a delicious donut, and take a photo with your child at our photo booth. Meet us on Wednesday, September 27th from 7:15 am – 7:45 am at the Dixieland Elementary School PE Pavilion.

Public schools throughout Polk County are inviting fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, foster fathers, mentors and other significant role models to take their children to school on Sept. 27. Mothers and other family members are welcome to participate, as we know they play a vital role in their children’s education, too.

Fifth Grade Butterflies

This week the fifth grade classes read “A Butterfly Struggle Story” and talked about how we struggle and that it is a necessary part of growing and learning.

Mrs. Yeater promised to buy caterpillars in the spring so that the students could watch them go through the stages of metamorphosis. Devin beat her to it! He brought two mystery boxes to school: one was filled with the dried up chrysalises and the other was filled with butterflies that had hatched. The fifth graders released them on Wednesday and Miss Livering and Miss Harris got an up close look!
