A new event called Rockin' on the Rock is being planned to benefit Dixon Schools Athletics and Activities for students in grades 6 through 12.  Click here to learn more about the event.

Reindeer Bags

Every year the 7th grade participates in community service. This year they created and filled reindeer bags full ofChristmascandy to give to area nursing homes. Heritage Square, Lee County Nursing Home, and Liberty Court Assisted living were recipients of their good will. All students in 7th grade language arts classes purchased candy and other goodies to fill a bag created for each resident. It truly is better to give than receive!

Reagan Middle School Homework Club

Reagan Middle School offers an after school program to help students with homework completion. The Program is run by Mrs. Mills and Mrs. Ackerson Monday through Friday from 2:15 to 3:00 in room # 210. The program does not run on half-days or school holidays. Transportation needs to be provided by the parents on days that your student attends Homework Club as busses do not run at 3:00. Homework Club is self-directed with staff available to give one on one help to students who get “stuck” while completing their work. The staff can also assist the students in getting their work organized. Staff will help students communicate with teachers in order to find out what work they have due and what missing work they may still need to turn in. Please contact Mr. Bullock, Mr. Magnafici or your school counselor to get your student enrolled in Homework Club.

6th Grade Visits Museum of Science and Industry

On November 25th, 2013 200 6th graders, teachers, and chaperones loaded on to charter buses and headed in to the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, for their annual field trip.  Students had an exciting day of taking a hands-on approach to the many exhibits the museum has to offer.  Among student favorites were the “Science: Storms” exhibit, and the “Baby Chick Hatchery”.  This field trip is many of the student’s first exposure to the city of Chicago. For some, looking out the widow of the bus, and seeing the skyline and city landmarks were just as exciting as the museum itself.  Funding for this trip was generously provided by the Dixon PTO.

Share the Love Project

At this time of the year we believe it is better to give than receive, so all 7th graders brought in wrapped candy and cookies to share with area nursing homes and assisted living homes. Students created 200 Snowman Bags to hold the goodies during class and then made sure the bags were delivered to Lee County Nursing Home, Heritage Square, and Liberty Court. We want to thank the entire 7th grade for their generosity. The residents were thrilled that young people remembered them during the holidays!
