• Destination Imagination

    It’s that time of year again, and Destination​ ​ImagiNation​ is looking for responsible kids with creative minds, great problem solving skills, and great team working abilities! ​ ​Destination ImagiNation​ is a community-based, school-friendly program that builds participants’ creativity, problem solving, and teamwork in enjoyable and meaningful ways. It is a wonderful program that allows teams of five to seven children to work together on long-term challenges and participate (K-2nd) or compete (3rd-5th) against other schools in the Austin and surrounding area. Participating in Destination​ ​ImagiNation​ involves a long term commitment and team responsibilities that lead through to the final competition in early March 2018.

    Becoming a team player involves meeting at least once a week after school for a few hours, purchasing a minimal amount of supplies, and lots of dedication and teamwork. ​ ​Each​ ​team​ ​will​ ​also​ ​need​ ​a​ ​coach to​ ​help​ ​organize​ ​and​ ​supervise​ ​the​ ​team​ ​from​ ​now​ ​until​ ​the​ ​competition.​ ​ ​We cannot​ ​do​ ​this​ ​without​committed​ ​parents​ ​willing​ ​to​ ​coach! If you are interested in allowing your child to participate in Destination​ ​ImagiNation​ ​and would like more information on the program, please visit the web site for a more detailed explanation.

    If your child chooses to participate this year, fill out the form. and return it to Ms. Macintyre at West Cypress Hills Elementary by October 13. (Forms may be dropped off in the office or given to your child’s classroom teacher.) 

    Please keep in mind that all supplies and local enrollment fees are paid by the team members and not through WCH. The good news is that all teams are given a strict budget and the total of all supplies is divided up equally between every team member. ($50 team registration fee to be divided by each team member, plus additional expenses for snacks and supplies).
