Dear Dixson Families,
I am excited to introduce myself as your new Principal. My name is Samone Grixti, and I am honored to have the opportunity to step into this role and ready to collaborate with our parents, students, and staff. I have been met with a warm welcome and look forward to the work we will take on together in the upcoming school year.
My 15 year journey as an educator started as a mathematics teacher in the Bronx, NY. Building upon my experience teaching students, leading teams, and developing curriculum, I transitioned into a new phase of my career as an Administrator for the Math and Science departments in Mount Vernon, NY. I recently served our community as Assistant Principal at Alexander Hamilton High School. My personal connection to both the Village and school district of Elmsford runs deep, as I was a resident for many years and am an alumni of Alexander Hamilton High School. I am excited and committed to giving back to the very place that supported my growth.
I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you at the many upcoming school events that our staff has planned for this year. At Dixson, we welcome and embrace a partnership with our families. Your engagement and participation is essential to the success of our students. We are excited to work together in developing an environment of curiosity, creativity, and academic engagement for our young learners.
Please feel free to contact me throughout the year. I hope you all enjoy the remaining days of summer and I welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year!
Carl L. Dixson Primary School
