Destination Imagination - In a world with growing cultural connections, increased levels and types of communication, and a new need for real-time teamwork and problem solving, the ability to solve problems quickly is becoming increasingly critical. Destination Imagination is an educational program where student teams build a lifelong confidence in our working together to solve any challenge!
In our school district many parents have formed Destination Imagination teams. If you would like your child to be a part of DI, please consider forming a team. Destination Imagination challenges teach teams many important life skills ...

On Tuesday, February 23, approximately fifty students in grades 3 and 4 competed in the District Battle of the Books competition at Kromrey Middle School. All students who participated qualified by winning 1st place in the Battle of the Books competitions at their home school. Students who participated worked in teams of 3-4 members to read 14 books (3rd grade) or 20 books (4th grade). During the competition, students were asked a question related to one book and could earn points by identifying the title (5 points) and the author (2 points). Congratulations to these district-level winners!

The third and fourth graders are getting geared up for the actual "Battle." Depending upon the school and the grade, the individual battles are being held at different times and dates. It is not a spectator event, so only the students who opted to participate will be present for the book battles. The first place winning team from each elementary school will represent their school at the district battle on February 23rd. It has been exciting to meet with students to hear about how their reading is going and which books they like best. During the battle teams will be asked to correctly identify the title and author of the book that matches the question. Points are given for the correct title and additional points for the correct author's name. Good luck to all of the participants!
