Dear Cardinal Fans,
The fall sports season is well underway in Central Decatur! As we root on our Cardinals, we wanted to provide a few updates and reminders to our families and spectators.
We are thrilled to have so many fans coming out to our games and competitions to support our student-athletes. Please continue to bring positive energy and refrain from engaging in things like questioning the officials or making negative comments about coaches and players. Mistakes are part of the game, and negativity only distracts from the fun and excitement of gameday.
We regularly discuss with students the behavioral expectations we have for them when attending games. We hope our adults can also provide a positive example.
Homecoming week is inching closer! Coronation will be at the Athletic Complex (weather permitting) on Thursday, September 29, at approximately 7:00 p.m. There is a middle school football game that night on the field, so we will start as soon as everyone is ready after the game.
The parade will start at 2:30 p.m. and will follow the usual route. Lineup is at 2:00 p.m. at Harvey Park.
The homecoming game is Friday, September 30, at 7:00 p.m. We will recognize Homecoming Court before the game, starting at 6:40 p.m. At halftime, we will recognize our former state qualifiers in golf and bowling. The Cardinal Dance Team, CD Flag Corps, and CD Football Cheerleaders will also perform their routines!
Finally, All-Music Night will be held Monday, October 3, starting at 6:00 p.m. They will be serving chicken/beef and noodles, mashed potatoes, roll, choice of dessert, lemonade or water for $10/adult and $5/students. You can walk up and order, or use the Fan Food app to order in advance and pick up your items.
As always, thank you for your support of Central Decatur athletics and our student-athletes. Go Cardinals!

It has been said for years that agriculture is more than “sows, plows, and cows”, which is 💯 the truth, but this week we are experiencing agriculture just that way! Thanks to the generosity of so many through financial contributions and donation of time we now have the CD Livestock Facility up and running! With two steers, a bred sow, and twenty-five broilers agriculture is certainly sows and cows, but it is also design planning, budgeting, cash flow, tracking inventory, marketing, monitoring health, ultrasounding, selecting feed rations, farrowing, sanitizing, processing, and so much more until they enjoy the end product in the Central Decatur School Lunch Program! What an amazing experience that we are so fortunate to have! A big shoutout to Jason Allen of Lamoni Livestock Auction for setting us up with steers and Junior Oesch for hauling them. Lacey Palmer Whitaker and Chris for taking care of the sow this summer and Brian Broich for helpful the farrowing managers haul her! Smith Feeder Supply for ordering our chicks and Kyle Linhart for hauling them! We will be hosting an Open House in the near future! Be watching for details and join us to see all the amazing opportunities offered through the CD CTE Programs!! … See MoreSee Less
