DECA students take trip to Hershey

By Preston Johns and Sandybel Cedeno


Mrs. Kirby and George Washington’s DECA students enjoyed a wonderful learning experience that will live with us for the rest of our lives.
We went to Hershey, PA to compete for  spots in the DECA international conference recently and we got to meet other students from all over the state.  We also attended workshops that gave us knowledge of what to expect when thinking about the different fields in  business.  This was a trip that we will never forget!  It wasn’t  just work – we had a lot of fun from shopping to the late night dances the program offered.   It  lived up to our  expectations and exceeded them,  that’s how fun it was.  DECA is a great program.  If you dream of having anything to do with business in your future, you should consider joining our DECA chapter.  You won’t regret it.

Our District representative, Eric Smith, will be attending the international conference in Orlando at the end of April.  Watch for more news about his trip.

Old but good movies!

By: Sandybel Cedeno-Casanova, Class of 2013

Some of the oldest and best movies are movies from way back.  I’m not talking about way back to the time of black and white movies, but more like 10-15 years ago. For example, four  of my favorites are  The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles, and Uncle Buck. Each movie has it own unique meaning and all inspire in a way.

The Breakfast Club is about a group of kids who have detention on a Saturday in High School and it shows the day they all had together.  It’s very interesting considering  all the different personalities that are in the group.  It’s a must see!

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is about a boy who doesn’t want to go to school and pretends to be sick; the movie has so many crazy things happening in it!  Of course, I can’t leave the humor that’s in it out, the movie is wonderful. It shows every kid’s dream of not going to school and having an awesome day!

Sixteen Candles is more like a girls’ typical chick flick, with humor and romance. It has the popular girl, the invisible girl and the hot guy. And we can’t forget the geeks that make it so much more interesting.

Uncle Buck!  Well, let me just start by saying there’s always that one uncle or aunt that didn’t come out like the rest of the siblings and that’s Uncle Buck. He’ss not perfect and he might not live in a high class area, but this guy came to the rescue to show his 2 nieces and nephew something different and how to live in the perspective he sees things in.   The man is an uncle I wouldn’t mind having. Uncle Buck, who is played by John Candy, shows that you should never underestimate anyone!

I insist you all give these movies a chance and enjoy them as much as I did.
