Today Celebrates: Girls Scout Leader Day, National Jelly Bean Day, and Earth Day!

Lunch for today includes: Cheese Lasagna Roll Up with Garlic Toast, Chicken Tenders with Dinner Roll, Vegetarian Baked Beans, Steamed Corn, Fresh Fruit, Mandarin Oranges, and Milk.

Happy Earth Day, Decatur!! The Surfrider Club will be celebrating Earth Week this week. Each day will have a different theme. Today is “Dim Day”. Please encourage your teachers to turn out the classroom lights if possible. Turning off the lights in the classroom for just half of the school day will save the school over $2,000 per year while also requiring less fossil fuel consumption.
