Congrats to them all!


We are in full swing with our preparation for the first DECA competition.  We have 28 students attending the district competition on December 14, 2017.  If they finish in the top 4 of their events they will qualify for the State competition in March of 2018.  We have several students doing testing and role play categories and other doing written projects such as Fashion Merchandising campaigns, and Entrepreneurship projects.
