I am so excited to welcome all of our incoming 9th graders and new students, and to welcome back all of our upper classmen for the 2019-2020 school year! This year, we will continue to advance our work as part of the Federal Way Public Schools Strategic Plan with a focus on Goal 2, The Whole Child and on Goal 5, Persistence to Graduation.
Families, we know you are starting your back-to-school shopping soon so I wanted to let you know where you can access our school supply list for next year. As you may know, Decatur is an AVID school which means we implement researched, vetted academic and organizational strategies school wide. One of those strategies is the use of the AVID Binder. At Decatur, we call it the P.R.O.U.D. Binder, and it is an expectation that all students have and utilize this important tool. You can access our school supply list for all of the required items to include in the binder on our website at https://www.fwps.org/decatur.
In addition, our website is also a great resource to find out about the activities and events happening at Decatur. You can also set-up and access your ParentVue account from the website. ParentVue is a vital communication tool provided by our district that allows you to monitor your scholar’s grades and attendance in real time. I hope you all are having a great summer, and we can’t wait to see you all at Gator Days!!
