Decatur Proud Recognitions: Backpack Supply Drive

At the School Board Meeting on September 13, 2022, those who contributed their time, business resources, donations, and talent to our 2022 Backpack School Supply Drive were recognized.  By partnering with the Decatur Township Fire Department and with the help from all of our community partners, we were able to provide 1225 backpacks, donated by the Indianapolis Airport Authority and Patterson Horth, filled with school supplies to our K-12 Decatur Township students!  This event and the generosity of our partners truly has a great impact on our families, helping to equip students to have a successful school year.  Thank you to all of our community partners:

Thank you to Kathy Flores, Shannon Preda, Billie Auberry, and Bev O’Toole for their hard work and dedication to this project. We would also like to express our sincere appreciation of our staff members, school board, and administrators for their invaluable support in both filling and distributing the backpacks.

Decatur Township Hosts Dr. Jenner, IN Secretary of Education

On August 24, 2022, a press conference was held at the Blue and Gold Academies in partnership with the Indiana Department of Education and The Mind Trust. A new opportunity to support students was announced by Dr. Katie Jenner, IN Secretary of Education, called “Indiana Learns,” which will provide funding for tutoring for students in 4th and 5th grades who qualify. MSD of Decatur Township has chosen to match funds to maximize the extended day opportunities in ELA and Math. “In MSD of Decatur Township, we strongly believe that investing resources into increased instructional opportunities for students will equal greater academic achievement,” said Dr. Matt Prusiecki, Superintendent of MSD of Decatur Township. “We are Decatur Proud to partner with the IDOE and The Mind Trust to give our students the strong foundation they need in reading and math, so that they can truly become tomorrow ready. With our district matching grant funds, Decatur students will have the resources necessary in support of their continued learning as an extension to the school day.”
