On the Road to Success at Dillon Elementary

Dillon’s Title I Program hosted our first family learning night on October 6.  Families were able to explore some of the many programs at Dillon that support students on their road to success.  Title I reading and math intervention tutors were available to meet parents and students to provide information about programs and answer questions.  Our counselor, Ms. Linn, presented information about our Mindfulness program.  Students designed race cars to start them on their own road to success.  After dinner, each student made a delicious race car treat for dessert!

Please watch the school newsletter and your child’s back pack for information about future family learning nights.
