The school bus is in town and ready to bring boys and girls to kindergarten!  I am so excited for the 2017-2018 school year to begin and to welcome each one of you to Decker Prairie Elementary. 

My name is Kay Franklin and I will be your child's teacher this year. I am a graduate of Sam Houston State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten Endorsement.  I have taught kindergarten in Tomball ISD for 18 years.  My family includes my wonderful husband, Bill, and our two sons.  I enjoy the beach, going to the hill country, and I love, love, LOVE shopping trips.  I can't wait to meet and learn all about my new students and their families.

Moms and Muffins!

Moms and Muffins is this Friday morning in our cafeteria. If you are coming, please make sure you have turned in your name on the pink sheet so a badge will be printed and ready for you! The pink sheet came home in last weeks Wed folder. Unfortunately if you have never had your ID scanned at the front desk, you will have to wait in line to have that done (even if you send in the pink sheet). Thank you all for being awesome moms!

Egg Hunt!

Egg hunt tomorrow

 

Due to the weather, we will have to move the egg hunt inside the building.  Unfortunately, parents will not be able to attend due to having to do one class at a time and we will not know the exact time for each class.

 Please let me know if you have parent concerns.
