Why do DI?
Destination Imagination, Inc. recently published a study emphasizing the benefits to children in DI. Through the creative process, kids "learn invaluable 21st century and career readiness skills, including creative and critical thinking, collaboration, project management, risk taking and how to build on their unique strengths." Check out the article to learn more about the opportunities DI provides to young learners.
It's almost time, Centerville DI! DI Picture Day is right around the corner. To see what time your team is scheduled, check out the schedule here. All teams should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled time. You will receive your Centerville DI t-shirt(changing rooms will be available) and have the opportunity to purchase the 2017 Centerville DI pin. There will also be a yummy bake sale with lots of delicious treats. We can't wait to see all the creative, silly poses the teams will come up with! Say cheese!

Have you been hearing about the Centerville DI Parent Support Group? Have you been wondering exactly what it is and what it does? The Centerville DI Parent Support Group (PSG) is a group of deDIcated parents just like you that give a small amount of time each month to help make the Centerville DI program run smoothly and successfully. The group is responsible for bringing you many of the events that you know and love - Parent Info Night, Picture Day, Dress Rehearsal, and (best of all!) DIssert Banquet! However, there are many positions on the PSG that remain unfilled this year and we need your help! Being a member of the PSG doesn't involve much time. The group meets once a month for about an hour and attendance at the meetings isn't mandatory to help out. There are several positions that can be done from the comfort of your home at your convenience. The next meeting for the PSG is coming up this FEBRUARY 12 at 5:00 at the Centerville Panera and we'd love to have you there. Feel free to stop in! If you'd like more information or would like to speak with any of the current members, check out the Parent Support Group tab.
