What is Cardinal Muscle?
Cardinal Muscle is our after school program for students in grades K-6. This program is free to all students attending Central Decatur and is funded by a variety of local sources, including post Covid learning loss funding. Kerry Welch serves as the program coordinator, and can be reached during the school day at 446-6521. Each night, CD teachers and paraprofessionals, community members, and high school students work to support students in the program. Students complete a variety of activities, including homework, physical fitness, and enrichment. Students utilize the school facilities and resources, including the gym, library, and computer lab (iPads & laptops).
Students need to be picked up each night by 5:00 at South Elementary.
Cardinal Muscle before school is provided from 7:15-8:00 am Monday-Friday at each school.
