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!
It's that time! Centerville DI will be kicking off the 2018-19 season on Monday, August 27 with a Parent Info Night! Please join us at 7:30pm in the Cline Auditorium. At this meeting, you will find out all you need to know about the Destination Imagination program and how to get your child involved. All Building Coordinators will be on hand to answer questions about each school and to let you know when Placement Workshops will be held. If you would like more information about Centerville DI, check out the flyer here. We can't wait to see you!
To tide you over until the DI season officially begins, check out the Destination Imagination official Challenge Previews here or the First Look Document here! There are some very fun and exciting challenges this year. Whether you like Technical, Scientific, Fine Arts, Improv, Engineering or Service Learning there is something for everyone - even our youngest Rising Stars!
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, July 29.
