Dickson StuCo, with the help of the Freshmen class are participating in raising money for a program called Sweet Cases.  When most children enter foster care they receive two trash bags to pack and carry the belongings they wish to take with them. Help us eliminate foster kids from getting trash bags when they enter the system and provide them with a Sweet Case which includes a duffel bag, blanket, hygiene kit, coloring book, crayons and stuffed animal.
The cost to provide one Sweet Case is $25.

Donations will be collected Nov 2-30.

 In June 2010, the Dickson School Board adopted a 24/7 tobacco free school  policy which prohibits tobacco use on school property and at school events for  everyone, at all times, even when school is out of session.



In May 2014, the district added  e-cigarettes and vaping devices to the policy.
