This Week's Snapshot...
Happy DCHS Homecoming!!! I hope that you are able to go and enjoy the festivities!!
Here are just a few snapshots from this week:
- Mrs. Bolden's class celebrated 30 days of great classroom attendance with a pajama party.
- Student clubs were a huge success this week! I have included a few pictures below! I really enjoyed leading the SD Dance Club! :)
- Classrooms all over the building have been working hard on citing text evidence to prove their opinions. This has been used for character traits, book themes, and non-fiction text features.
- Students worked hard this week to earn a spot to attend the DCHS high dive dedication with Olympian Amy Cozad. The even will take place on Tuesday, September 20th at 10:00 in the DCHS natatorium.
Our Grandparent's Night will take place next Tuesday, September 20th from 5-7pm. I hope that to see many students and their families at this event. Dinner will be provided and there will be many different activities for you to enjoy!

MSD Decatur Job Opportunity
Are you or is someone you know looking for a rewarding employment opportunity and the chance to make a difference on a part-time or full-time basis? Do you like working with children with disabilities and helping them reach their highest potential? If so, please consider applying to be a special education substitute teacher in our Comprehensive Intervention Program (CIP) and/or Developmental Preschool classrooms. In Decatur Township our CIP classes are self-contained, special education classrooms designed to support the needs of students with disabilities who require more individualized and small group supports and services. Developmental Preschool is a self-contained classroom for our 3 and 4 years olds with disabilities. In both of these settings, you would be one member of the team as a substitute and would have the support of the other regular staff members in the room to get to know the students and procedures. MSD of Decatur Township currently has openings for these special education substitute positions posted on our website. In addition to working with amazing students, these positions follow the school calendar and would be ideal if you have children already enrolled in our school system. If you are interested or would like more information, please visit our website at www.decaturproud.org and apply today! Current pay is $100 per school day.
