There is a Margaret Meade quote in Dixon's main office that says "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the the only thing that ever has."
There are a lot of teachable moments today at Dixon for our students, staff and parents...but for now, we will bask in the glow knowing today that our school will remain open. What makes this act of democracy so special is that so many in the Dixon Community contributed to the success of this venture. Our PAC and parent supporters lead the charge, and staff and students followed with their support. Current students and Dixon alumni were empowered and empassioned. Our Trustees heard the Dixon voices and decided our fate accordingly.
Somethig our students can take with them forever is that when faced with adversity, we stand up, think, and then do something about it. Indeed, that type of action is the the only thing that has ever made a difference. A new lease on life for the Dixon Community...more a community today than yesterday. Just like our school motto says...we're "Working, Learning, and Growing Together."
Thank you all for your teamwork and support!
