Hello! My name is Aubrie Cheatham and I will be your child's Kindergarten teacher this year! This will be my third year teaching Kindergarten and I am looking forward to working with your students! I am very excited to be at Decker Prairie Elementary working with this great Kindergarten team.
 
I grew up in Cypress and graduated from Cypress Woods High School. I am the oldest of four siblings! This school year in March, I am getting married! My fiancee and I rescued a puppy this summer and expanded our family by 4 puppy paws! Our new puppy's name is Echo!
 
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Sam Houston State University in December of 2013 where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I love working with children! In fact, it has been my dream since I was a little girl. I am elated to continue my career in the teaching field and can't wait to work with your children.  
 
I look forward to getting to know you over the coming year! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions!

Upcoming Field Trip!

Our Field Trip to the Oil Ranch is coming up on April 6th!
 
Students must have a SIGNED permission slip to go on the field trip. If they do not have a permission slip turned in, they will have to stay at school. These came home on Wednesday, March 22nd in their red Cougar folders. Please send them back to school as soon as you can.
 
If you would like to volunteer as a chaperone, please fill out the information that came home in Wednesday folders yesterday and return it to me.  As a chaperone, you will get a small group of children to take around the Oil Ranch for the duration of the trip! Our chaperones are required to fill out a background check.  Please do this as soon as possible because it takes a little bit for it to go through.  
 
If your child needs to buy a sack lunch from the cafeteria to take on our trip, please send me an email and let me know so that I can include your child in our lunch count. 
 
If you have any questions, please let me know! We are looking forward to our field trip!!
