Welcome to Dixon Elementary School and the home of the Bulldogs!
Dear Parents, Students, Families and Community of Dixon Elementary School,
Welcome to Dixon Elementary School and the 2023-24 school year! It is truly an honor to be a member of the Dixon Elementary School family and community. Dixon Elementary has a rich history of academic excellence and community support and I am so very blessed to continue those traditions with our Bulldogs!
I have been a proud resident of Onslow County for many years. I have a wonderful family-three members that are products of the Onslow County School System. I have an amazing husband, Mark Bulris, who is the Executive Director of Elementary Education for Onslow County Schools. We have two wonderful children, Maddox and McKenzie. Our daughter, Maddox, is a 2017 graduate of Southwest High School and a 2021 graduate of Western Carolina University. Our son, McKenzie, is a 2021 graduate of Southwest High School and is attending UNC-Chapel Hill as a member of the Class of 2025 and the UNC Marching Tar Heels! I am a graduate of the Columbus County School System and a proud alumnus of East Carolina University (Go Pirates!). Outside of my school time, I enjoy traveling, watching sports, photography, and spending time with family.
At Dixon Elementary, we take great pride in our students as we work together as a community to grow all leaders in leadership skills and global competencies. Dixon Elementary School embodies these principles each day. As a result of the work and collaboration of students, staff, and community, Dixon Elementary has been designated as a Covey Lighthouse School and a NC Global Ready School. As our school mission says:
Educators and families clear the path for students to reach their potential.
We truly value our families and the impact that they have made on their students. Working together, we will raise the bar for all learners and help them achieve their highest potential!
Thank you for your ongoing support for the student and staff Global Leaders at Dixon Elementary School! We are honored to have the privilege of working with all our DES students!
