Reminder: Destination Imagination Parent Information Session
A reminder that the information session for any elementary parent interested in learning more about Destination Imagination is tomorrow night, Thursday, August 24th at 5:30 pm. The meeting will be held in the data lab on the 3rd floor of the Phillips building (30 Common Street).
What is Destination Imagination:
Destination Imagination is a team based program that fosters students creativity and curiosity through open-ended academic challenges in the areas of STEAM, fine arts, and service learning. Teams work together on DI challenges and compete at the state, national, and even global level.
How it works is the each team needs to have a manager. So we are looking for parents who want to learn more about becoming involved with this program. Parental involvement in DI could be managing a team, co-managing a team, or hosting a team at your house while they work on finding their challenge solution.
The amount of parent interest will determine how many teams would form, at what grade levels, and when and where they would meet (DI teams can meet after school or in the evening).
