Principal's Message

  • Christina Spencer, Interim Principal Greetings Decatur Families,

    Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! Whether you have been a member of the Gator family for years or you are a brand new Gator, I am excited to welcome you to Gator country!  I hope everyone is rested, rejuvenated, and ready to embrace all of the excitement and energy that this year has to offer!

    I truly believe that the Gator community is entering into a great period of growth and I am absolutely honored to be your proud principal at this time. Each day, I grow more and more energized by the knowledge that our staff and scholars will fill the halls of our amazing school in a few short weeks.  When our scholars arrive, the staff and I are prepared to partner with ALL families to show our commitment to empowering the mind and heart of the whole scholar.  As partners, we share in the responsibility of ALL of our scholars’ success. Please know that each staff member is committed to the responsibility of supporting our scholars and we will do our very best to carry out the duties that are connected with our responsibility. It is our goal that ALL scholars will find success in high school and beyond.

    In addition, I want you to know that I whole heartedly believe that service is my most important role as a principal. As a result, I look forward to being a collaborative thought partner with you throughout the year.  Please feel free to connect with me at any point.

    In order to prepare for our journey this year, I created a presentation and an entry plan (a link to the entry plan will be posted on our website) to help me orient myself with the community as I take on my new role. It is my goal that these tools will keep me accountable and help me to lead this community in a direction that supports all scholars, families, staff, and community members so that everyone gets what they need to have a successful school year.

    I am privileged to be a part of this community and I thank you for your support.  I look forward to connecting with you in the coming year!

    In partnership, 

    Christina Spencer
    Proud Interim Principal
