Marketing classes start Table Topper business
The D.C. Everest Advanced Marketing classes have started their own school-based business called D.C. Everest Table Toppers. The mission for the business is to support local businesses by providing an affordable advertising solution to the Wausau area. Table Toppers are advertising booklets filled with local business ads that will be placed in Wausau area restaurants including Sam's Pizza, Dale's Weston Lanes and Tailgatez.
Table Toppers is a capstone project for the Advanced Marketing class. Students created a partnership agreement, selected job duties and were responsible for securing tables. They also sell ad space, create contracts and invoices, promote the business and manufacture the ad holders.
Five percent of all revenue goes to The Neighbors" Place. The remaining profit is for student scholarships.

Readers choose biographies
The third-grade students at Newman Catholic Elementary School at St. Mark Parish are continually learning about different genres from the stories and articles in their reading books.
For their monthly reading challenge, the students chose a biography to read for their reports. Each student chose a person related to something of interest to them to read about. When the students shared their reports, they dressed as the person in the biography.
Students try their hand at snowshoeing
Snowshoeing is just one of the many lifelong sports available during the long winter months in Wisconsin. Mandy Schepp, physical education teacher, introduced this activity to the fifth-grade students at NCES-St. Mark Elementary.
During the snowshoeing experience, students were able to see the beauty of the outdoors and observe how extraordinary the trees look covered in snow. They also had an opportunity to see tracks in the snow and identify which animals are active during these winter months, such as squirrels.
