On Friday, November 10, 2017, members of Turner Ashby DECA competed at the district leadership conference at the Valley Mall. Everyone did a great job and represented TA in a professional manner! Hannah Hirtriter won two 1st place medals- one in retail marketing and the other in Business Service marketing. Patrick Ritchie scored a hat-trick and won all three of his events. He placed first in marketing communications, accounting applications and human resources. Next DECA will compete at the state leadership conference in Virginia Beach in March. Way to go TA DECA!
Boys - it's that time again! Registration for DECA's annual Kings of the Court boys volleyball tournament will be held on Thursday, September 14th in room 104 (Mrs. Talley's room) at break. You must have your $20 registration fee to sign up and registration is first come, first served. The big event will take place on October 5th so get ready!
Congratulations to Ms. Dulaney's 7th period class for winning the Soles for Souls in the Valley shoe drive! It was an incredibly close race and I cannot thank the TA faculty enough for the support you've shown for this project (and for the Angel Tree Project). As of now we have almost 800 pairs of shoes!
TA truly is a special place to be.

DECA would like to say thank you to the fans that came out for Kings of the Court last night. It was the best student section we’ve ever had! Also a huge thank you goes out to the volleyball team and coaches for their hard work in making this event so successful. The juniors and seniors battled it out in the three set championship match and the seniors came out victorious. It was a great night to be Knight!
Kings of the Court is back! TA is sending a 10 man senior volleyball team and a junior volleyball team to Harrisonburg High School to play against the junior and senior teams of HHS and SHS. There will be a registration fee of $20.00 that will include a team shirt and also include the buy in for the event. Sign-ups will be on April 6th. Pick up registration forms in room 104. Money and forms will be due during break on April 6th!
The TAHS DECA club would like to say a tremendous thank you to the TA family for helping us with this project. With your help we were able to provide gifts and necessities for 200 children in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County! We will deliver the personal hygiene and non-perishable food items to Social Services next week for elderly citizens in need.
Here is a link to an awesome 3D video (thanks to Katie Moran's technology wizardry) of all of the gifts before we took them to Social Services. This is an interactive 3D picture so use your mouse to move around my classroom. Below is a panoramic picture of the room, as well.
For a more complete story, more pictures, and a time lapse video, see the blog entry under Knights in the News.
The DECA Angel Tree Project is here! We have 200 local underprivileged children who without your help will not receive gifts and necessities this holiday season.
