DECA

     Ms. Laura Wheeler, Adviser

DECA (formerly Distributive Education Clubs of America, now known simply as DECA) is a co-curricular business program for high school students that stresses college and career skills. By building transferable skills, DECA develops emerging leaders prepared for success in the global economy. There are more than 200,000 high school members from all 50 states, 4 U.S. territories, Canada, China, Germany, Mexico, and Spain. 

DECA activities include professional speakers, leadership training, competitive conferences, skills workshops, community service, team bonding and more. Events occur mostly during the school day and to be a member in good standing, students must attend at least 3 DECA opportunities each year. That means DECA is about choosing what you want to experience whether that’s attending the speaker series, competing at the District Conference, or building new relationships at team bonding events.

Since we are a new program, ANY student can join DECA. Eventually, in order to become a member, students must be enrolled in a qualifying business-related course during the school year or have taken a qualifying course during a previous school year. Qualifying courses at Hamilton Wenham include Financial Literacy, Math and Finance, Principles of Marketing, Economics, and Sports & Entertainment Marketing. Hamilton Wenham DECA is led by Advisor Laura Wheeler and Assistant Advisor Stefanie Rogal. To learn more about DECA, visit www.deca.org and www.massdeca.org.

Math Team

Mr. Shippen, Advisor

The Math Team combines the excitement of interscholastic competition with academics. Every month from October through April, ten students from each of the thirty-six schools in the Massachusetts Mathematics League assemble to compete in divisional meets.

Even though ten students compete each month, the math team is not limited to ten nor is it only for the strong student. Attending practices and taking tryout tests almost assure a better understanding of mathematics. Some supposedly average students have developed a real interest or talent in math as a member. Math Team members will see new areas of mathematics and have a chance to work on stimulating and challenging problems.

The value of the math team to students has been dramatically proven by higher scores achieved on the College Board achievement tests, and by results in the state and national actuarial prize exams. Freshmen are encouraged to try out since there are positions on the team for them.

Email t.shippen@hwschools.net for more information.

Model UN

Ms. Borges, Advisor

The Model UN club (MUN) is an organization that ‘models’ the actual United Nations and its functions through simulation. The simulation occurs at local high schools and universities where students are assigned as delegates to a member nation of the United Nations, and assigned a specific committee. Research on the actual country’s position is required prior to attending the MUN conference. At the MUN conference, members of the delegation present and debate their country’s position to other students from different schools that are representing assorted nations. MUN meets every Thursday after school from 2:20 – 3:00. (You can still join MUN if you play sports!) In addition to regular meetings, the MUN club goes to approximately three conferences, or MUN events each year. Meetings are on Thursday, afterschool in Room 109.
