AHS DISTRICT DECA
Congratulations to the AHS DECA competitors for a great showing last week at the District 3 Competitive Events. 68 students from Ames competed, with 52 placing in the top 10 of their events. Of those, 8 earned first place in their events! These students include: Kylene Harold (Food Marketing), Iluda Ko (Automotive Services Marketing), Luke Dirks (Restaurant and Food Services Marketing), John Swanson and Ryan Clem (Hospitality Team Event), Christabel Forney (Marketing Cluster Exam), Ayah Gleisner (Hospitality Cluster Exam), and Gabe Overstreet (Personal Finance Cluster Exam). Students will now work to prepare for the State Competitive Event, which occurs February 25-26 in Des Moines.
 
DECA is an organization that prepares emerging leaders to be college and career ready. While the focus of competitive events is on business principles such as marketing, finance, and entrepreneurship, students who participate in the local DECA chapter also find themselves involved in service projects that help them further their commitment to community, as well as leadership activities that help them develop and enhance employability skills.
 
POST PROM FUNDRAISING
Post Prom is a safe, alcohol free event for students that is parent sponsored, at no cost for students, and solely supported by donations.  Fundraising for Post Prom 2018 is under way, so with Black Friday and Cyber Monday quickly approaching, please consider following this link https://www.flipgive.com/f/525643 prior to making your online purchase.  You will still be making purchases through the online retailer website, but the retailers will be donating a portion of the sale to Ames High Post Prom.  There is also a link on the “Ames High Post Prom” Facebook page that will allow purchases on your mobile device easier.  The 2018 Post Prom Committee appreciates your support!
