Students, new and returning, flock to classes in Dixon – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

Something like an annual rite of passage, Dixon Unified classes resumed Wednesday with teachers introducing themselves to students, from shy kindergarteners to seasoned seniors, explaining classroom do’s and don’t’s, and assigning, in some cases, the first homework of the 2015-16 school year.

By 8 a.m. at Tremont Elementary School, new Principal Donna Marshall greeted students outside of more than 20 classrooms, extending her hand and asking their names while standing under shade-giving Chinese pistache and honey locust trees.

They were among the 610 students, 80 of them recently registered from new Dixon housing areas, said Marshall, one of the rural school district’s four new principals.
