Thank you for your donations, but we still need your help.

Our Goal: $9,000

Your help is needed TODAY! Please help us go to Destination Imagination® Global Finals!

On April 25, 2015, our Destination Imagination team from Dennison Elementary placed 2nd at the State tournament, qualifying us to compete at Global Finals at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville on May 20-24, 2015.

DI is a program designed to challenge young people to do long-term, creative problem-solving through teamwork and collaboration. Teams from kindergarten through college work together to create solutions to selected challenges without assistance or interference from adults.

This year we competed in a Challenge called “Lose To Win”, in which the team was required to build a structure, made out of only wood/glue/playing cards, that could hold a pressure board while removing pieces of the structure. The lighter the structure and the more weight removed, the more points were awarded.

Now, our destination is Global Finals where we get the chance to compete against other elementary organizations from approximately 14 different countries. In order to attend, our team must raise $9,000.00. This cost covers registration fees, airfare, prop shipping costs, housing and meals. (This goal does not include the cost of one parent for each team member.)

Time is short. Please send in your tax-deductible contribution by May 12, 2015. Checks can be made out to Dennison PTA. Please note “DI” in the memo section.

BE A BUDDY NOT A BULLY
Two Letters Certainly Make a Difference
The Dennison PTA has purchased several books about bullying and what it means to be a good friend.

We are donating these books to the Dennison Library so that parents and students have a resource when they need to talk to their children about bullying.

We would like to encourage parents and teachers to check out these books and have a conversation with their students about being a good friend and what to do when you see someone being unkind to your friend.
