See what we've been up to!
On Friday, December 10, 2021 Coginchaug DECA will be hosting PJ Day for the Kids. We are encouraging the entire Coginchaug staff and students to participate.
We will join schools and businesses across Connecticut by wearing Pajamas to school in support of children at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center who must wear theirs.
PJ Day is a way for people all across CT and beyond to do something positive TOGETHER during these times of isolation and uncertainty. It is a SMALL gesture with a BIG impact!
DECA members will be collecting donations in the morning and throughout the day. We are asking for a donation of $1 or more.
100% of donations are used for childhood cancer research, clinical trials and care at Connecticut Children's.
Since 2011, more than $1.4 million has been raised in support of Connecticut Children's Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders, with more than $398,000 raised in 2020 alone. Together, $1 (or more) at a time, we are making a difference!
Coat Drive in support of St. Elizabeth Home and Friendship Center
From November 15-19th Coginchaug DECA hosted a Coat Drive to support St. Elizabeth Home and Friendship Center.
Between the in-school drive, the community drop off, and collection at Strong Middle School, over 200 coats were collected in all.
Thank you to all that donated and helped to ensure our Spread the Warmth coat drive was a success.
2021 DECA Golf Outing
On October 11, 2021, Coginchaug DECA held its first ever golf tournament at Indian Springs Golf Course in Middlefield Connecticut.
Members of Coginchaug DECA were tasked with the four functions of management (planning, organizing, leading, and controlling) for this event. Alyssa Szymaszek, the golf tournament chairperson, led a team through the successful completion of the event. “It was a beautiful day, and I am extremely proud of the work that my DECA members did in planning and organizing this incredible event,” says Mr. Donecker, Coginchaug DECA’s Advisor.
The funds raised from this event will help to defray the costs of state and international competitions this year.
Coginchaug DECA would like to thank Horseshoe Tavern, The Huscher Group, Ivy Rehab of Guilford, Charles R. Bogen Jr. CPA LLC, William Raveis Real Estate, LaRosa Construction, Planeta Woodworking, Terra Mennone Homes, Apex Dental, TriCircle Inc, and Carmines Pizza for sponsoring this event.
