Our entire staff is committed to academic excellence, as well as the social enrichment and emotional support of our students. Our daily goal is to establish a strong personal and academic foundation rooted in the Bison Be's –
and Be SAFE
Our Vision is to provide a quality education for all students. Our goal is to provide the necessary academic, behavioral, and creative thinking skills that will allow all students to be successful through their school career and life.
We promote teaching that challenges students to reach beyond merely knowing the course material. We believe students must be able to think critically, analyze information, respond effectively, apply their learning in real life situations, view the world as global citizens and use varied technologies to create, communicate and collaborate.
As a true community school, we take pride in the many opportunities we offer our students. Please visit our website often to stay abreast of all that goes on at Dixon Elementary.
Thanks for visiting, and I look forward to seeing you at Dixon!

MONTANA – Governor Steve Bullock today announced a new crisis counseling hotline to aid Montanans struggling with their mental health due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 public health emergency. The Montana Crisis Recovery hotline is funded and available for at least the next nine months. Montanans in need of crisis counseling can call 1-877-503-0833 to receive free and confidential counseling services from trained crisis counselors Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The free service is meant to help people navigate feelings of isolation, loss, fear, uncertainty, depression, and anxiety they are experiencing during this time. The new service is available to all Montanans, with target populations identified as healthcare workers and first responders, school officials, veterans, elderly individuals, Native Americans, and farmers and ranchers.The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) partnered with Disaster and Emergency Services to pursue the grant to address the growing need for mental health services. Counselors on the other end of the line will be there to listen without judgement, offer emotional support, comfort, console, offer information and education on stress and coping, and direct callers to additional support and community resources. DPHHS is contracting with Mental Health America of Montana to manage the hotline. The phone line, when fully staffed, will include 12 trained crisis counselors. Efforts are currently under way to recruit and hire two counselors who are Tribal members. Other mental health resources that are already available to Montanans include the Montana Crisis Text Line, Montana Suicide Prevention Lifeline, Montana Warmline and Thrive by Waypoint Health. The Crisis Text Line is available 24/7 by texting MT to 741 741; the Montana Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24/7 at 800-273-TALK (8255); the Warmline is available Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday noon to 9 p.m. at 877-688-3377; and information about Thrive by Waypoint Health, an online cognitive behavioral therapy for those actively working to manage anxiety and stress, is available at https://thriveformontana.com/.
