Summer Events

Several things are going on at Carson Elementary this summer! We have 137 students enrolled in summer School. Mrs. Farris, the summer school principal has many events planned for these students. Every Tuesday, Fit-N-Wise comes present the Fit Youth program. The students exercise and talk about healthy food choices. Every Wednesday, the Decatur Public Library comes to present the Summer Reading Program to the group. They also give away two books to the pre-kindergarten students so that by the end of the summer these students have 18 books each!

Carson is also hosting a Summer Meal Program in which all students who appear younger than 18 years old can eat breakfast and lunch for free Monday through Friday, June 6-August 5th. Adults are $1! Menus are posted on the Decatur ISD website.

Decatur Cares is program that is also hosted at Carson every Tuesday from 12:30-1:30. This program feeds lunch to families of need. They then watch a video on the preparation of a particular meal, while the students are playing games in the gym. The group then picks up all of the ingredients to that are needed to prepare the meal! It is a great program with many, many participants!
