Station Camp DECA Newsletter

March 2018

Almost There...

With less than seven weeks to go in the semester, DECA plans to end on high note. We had several winners at the DECA State level and will be headed to ICDC in Atlanta, GA, next month. In addition, we have our DECA Banquet coming up in May and graduation around the corner. Winners are highlighted below.

Competition Preparation Meetings Posted

Be Involved. Be Someone. Be DECA.

Several students have moved on in DECA competition and are representing Station Camp well. Students are able to reserve time with their teachers to practice written events. Teachers have also set aside afternoons and mornings for students to practice and prepare role plays. Informational meetings are also available before school. We'll be announcing DECA ICDC winners in the next newsletter and hoping that will be a lengthy list just like state. A special thanks to all who have helped our students achieve their goals.
