my children go there and they love the school and the staff they have there
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 28, 2005

Dixie Elementary could use alot of room for improvment, number 1 they do not offer enough after school activities, the children are bored with nothing to look forward to. They also need more music teaching in the school, not just for sixth graders for all the grades. They are raising all this money for outdoor playground equipment, but indeed they don't need outdoor playground equipment, they need to build a gymnasium for the children, we live in Wv we have 8 months of bad weather, we need our children out of the cold weather, so they will not be sick all winter, they need a place to play indoors, we have our 6th grade class in our only room that could be used for winter activities. people get a life quit worring about everthing except our children, that is what it is all about.
