Ropers is the jump rope team at Decker Prairie. They practice twice a week on Wednesday and Thursdays before school and perform throughout the community during the school year. The team consists of 3rd and 4th graders that try out in early September. They are chosen not only for their jump rope skills, but for their upstanding behavior and dedication in the classroom. This team was originally formed in the spring of 1990. The Ropers are under the direction of PE teachers, Gaylynn Anderson and Karen Sandoz. DPES students always look forward to this activity as they become 3rd graders. It is truly a DPES tradition!
