Dively took a marketing exam and executed a sales demonstration.
Cole Halligan, senior, earned the Emerging Leader Honor Award and was one of two Wisconsin DECA members to earn this prestigious award.
The DECA Depot, the school store, was recognized for achieving the Gold Level School Based Enterprise. This is the highest honor for a school store.
Lucas Gajewski, senior, attended the Senior Management Institute, which engages high school seniors in activities designed to prepare them to transition from high school to college and the business world.

NCES - St. Mark
Elementary school hosts LearnFest
Newman Catholic Elementary School - St. Mark recently held its annual LearnFest. The event featured an art exhibit, student dance demonstrations, several patriotic songs and numerous academic displays.
The preschoolers led off the night with the Pledge of Allegiance; first- and second-graders danced the "Bahama Roller Coaster," and the third- through fifth-graders entertained the audience with patriotic songs.
Artwork consisted of pieces created throughout the school year. Some of the students' favorite creations were paper bowls in the style of famed glass artist Dale Chihuly, painted cardinals, masks and bumble bees made from plaster, mobiles and wearable paper hat sculptures.
Bake sale helps save rain forest, river
Third-graders at NCES - St. Mark have been learning about the importance of rain forests in science class.
They know that there are many products used that come from the rain forest and that saving the forests is beneficial to all of us. The students wrote reports about the birds and animals that live there and made pictures of them to create a rain forest mural.
Students celebrated Earth Day by having a bake sale to help raise money to save the rain forest. Parents, students and school staff members baked treats for everyone to enjoy. The money earned was sent to the Earth's Birthday Project, where it will be used to help purchase and protect rain forest land in Peru and help preserve the Colorado River in our country.
