Homework is a tool to get students to continue the skills and lessons that they are taught in class, while they’re at home. Homework is a great way to teach students positive study habits, organizations skills and the importance of meeting deadlines.

One of our biggest Dixie Center for the Arts events is right around the corner. On April 18,the 10th annual Joe Woods Wildwood Express Showcase will again grace the historic Dixie stage. The show begins at 6 p.m. featuring songs that we know and love.
We celebrate the life and legacy of Joe Woods each spring as we bring back band members who played in his original band and singers who often have a tie to Joe, and always a connection to the music he performed at the Dixie Theater every Saturday night.
