Students involved in DI learn higher order thinking and learn to
excel in creative and critical thinking, collaborative problem
solving, and project management. Students who have
participated in Destination Imagination say they believe
participation helped them improve their grades and do better
in school, improved their self-confidence, helped them become
better communicators, enhanced their respect for others, and
improved their creativity and problem solving skills. Check out the DI, Inc. page on WHY DI to learn more!
Centerville DI Dress Rehearsal is right around the corner! Mark your calendar for Sunday, February 25. The final schedule for all teams can be found here. Dress Rehearsal is a great opportunity for teams to see how things are coming together - do props fit through a door? do the set pieces fall apart when moved? do lines in a script get forgotten when faced with a live audience? Your team WILL benefit from Dress Rehearsal!
A big shout out goes out to all the volunteers who will help make Centerville DI Dress Rehearsal run smoothly. The schedule for volunteer shifts can be located here. We all deeply appreciate the time you give to make this event as great as it is!
Congratulations to Jennifer Schwabe for winning the Centerville DI T-Shirt Design Contest! Jennifer's FULL STEAM AHEAD design was chosen during the December 3 Parent Support Group meeting. It was a tough decision this year with over 20 increDIble designs turned in. It's obvious that all of Centerville DI is very creative! Jennifer has two children in Centerville DI and is the co-manager of a Centerville Middle School team. As the winner of the contest, Jennifer's team will receive a pizza party! We are very excited to feature this amazing FULL STEAM AHEAD design on our t-shirts this year. Let's all give a big round of applause to Jennifer for her creative design!
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. If you'd like more information or would like to speak with any of the current members, check out the Parent Support Group tab or join us at our next meeting on Sunday, February 11.
