There are two different smoothie flavors that are sold every Tuseday at the Jungle Cafe.

When it comes to extracurricular activities, there are so many that, at times, having all the information about a certain one can be difficult. Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA), offers a variety of opportunities to students in their area of interest.

“DECA is a business and marketing focused organization that helps prepare you for jobs in the field,” senior Emily Eigenmann said. “For instance, I’m going to a DECA districts competition for Marketing Communications.”

Fundraising can be a huge part of a clubs identity. DECA fundraises by selling smoothies at the Jungle Cafe on Tuesdays. This has remained their main form of fundraising for a long period of time, and that will seemingly remain for long to come due to its simplicity and affordability.

“Smoothies are a form of fundraising for DECA at our school because people love smoothies,” Eigenmann said. “Hopefully starting [the week of February 11], we will be having new items in the Jag Cafe, we for sure plan to start selling hot chocolate”
