From the Director’s Chair

Greetings DECATS Families!

It is with gratitude and joy that I share with you that the second week of DECATS has been amazing!  Our Scholars are working at learning while finding “The Strength Within” at DECATS!

As the second week  comes to a close, it fills me with joy to give an account of the events that have transpired.  Our “Executive Functioning” Scholars have explored and practiced ways to strengthen working memory, initiative, materials management and social coordination. During “Wellness,” Scholars discussed stressors, healthy body image and nutrition. Our “Values and Morals” Scholars are hard at work with their give back project collecting teddy bears and canned goods while providing service to the community!  Scholars are designing their own Hogwarts floorplans in “Hello, Hogwarts!” You can also hear the captivating sounds of rhythmic percussion skills throughout the halls in “Cool Beats,” and others are observing seed growth and developing plant journals in “Get Growing.”

We are blessed to have such a wonderful group of Mentors with whom I have the pleasure to work.  They are a tremendous collection of world-class educators. Let us know what your Scholars are saying about their DECATS experience. If we may use your comments online and in other projects, let us know that as well. It is pleasing to have received so many wonderful messages from families who are experiencing the impact that DECATS is having in their lives!
