LETTER TO THE STUDENTS

TO THE STUDENTS OF DCJ/SHS

I would like to welcome you to Decatur Community Junior/Senior High School.  You are a vital part of our school family.  Your attendance and performance is crucial to your future and our community.

The handbook is designed to assist with communicating to students and parents important issues, whether they are required by law, regulation, Board Policy, or practice.  All provisions set forth in this handbook are intended to be and shall be regulations for student conduct.  The handbook and all provisions are adopted and approved each year for the purpose of defining minimum expectations for student conduct and to ensure that the school is maintained for the best possible environment for learning and creating a climate that will ensure a safe and orderly environment for you to be successful.  I encourage you to set high expectations of achievement and strive to accomplish these expectations by being ResponsibleRespectful, and Resourceful.

Your junior/senior high school years will provide you with many lifelong experiences that will shape your future.  You determine that future.  As educators, we are here to help guide you and provide the necessary means to get you where you want to go.  I encourage you to be an active participant and take pride in your educational accomplishments and school activities.  The success of our school is directly affected by your actions.  Don’t expect someone else to do this for you.  You will have lots of fun and success as a Red Devil.  Remember, you must set your own goals and values.  You will soon be the future of our society.

I am looking forward to a great year and to the opportunity to get to know you and watch you grow into a young adult.  My door is always open so feel free to stop in any time.

 

Education is the door to the future. 

You are the future.
