Principal's Corner

"A goal without a plan is just a wish."--Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Dear Families,

As the proud principal of Stephen Decatur Elementary, I am honored to welcome you to another successful year of learning, growing, and discovery.  Our staff of dedicated educators encourages students to reach beyond their potential in every aspect of their lives. To encourage growth, we integrate all subjects (reading, writing, math, science, social studies) with technology to enhance instruction and prepare students for the future.  We encourage three core values: respect, responsibility, and safety. We model these expectations daily and celebrate students and full classes that meet these expectations consistently.

We believe that in order for students to be successful, schools must partner with parents and the community.  Stephen Decatur hosts family events and PTO meetings, We communicate daily via social media, weekly via emails, and monthly via a school newsletter.  We encourage all parents to call or email with any questions, concerns, or suggestions.

Thank you for sharing your children with us at Stephen Decatur!  We know this is a tremendous opportunity for us and are Decatur Proud to serve you!

With pride,

Mrs. Jennifer Pearson
