D.C. Everest Senior High School

DECA recognizes outstanding school stores

The School-Based Enterprise at D.C. Everest High School was among 166 school-based enterprises in the United States achieving Gold Level Certification this year and will be recognized at DECA's International Career Development Conference in Anaheim, Calif.

The students who worked on the certification were store managers Dustin Johnson and Jon Rohr, with the assistance of their adviser Jodi Peterson. The school-based enterprise at D.C. Everest High School has operated for at this level for the past four years and is to be commended for this achievement.

School-based Enterprises are educational tools that help prepare students for the transition from school to work or college. For many students, they provide the first work experience; for others, they provide an opportunity to build management, supervision and leadership skills. While some in the education community have only recently discovered the value of school-based enterprises, marketing educators and DECA advisers have used them as a learning lab for more than four decades.

DECA's School-based Enterprise Certification Program was developed to provide recognition for outstanding achievement by school-based enterprises and to motivate them to strive for excellence and growth. School stores can be certified at three levels: Bronze, Silver or Gold.

Newman Catholic Elementary Schools: St. Mark

St. Mark attends pediatric orientation program

The first-grade class from Newman Catholic Elementary School at St. Mark recently attended the pediatric orientation program at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

A hospital volunteer helped ease the fear and anxiety that young children might have about the experiences of going to the hospital.

Students learned how they would get admitted to the hospital, what tests they might need and why doctors need to wear masks, caps and gowns to do surgery. Children looked at X-rays and learned a hint that helps take a little of the pain away from getting shots.

The first-graders made a plan about what they might need to pack in their suitcases for an overnight stay in the hospital. Students also had the opportunity to role play the parts of patient and doctor.
