The Square 1 Art fundraiser is a way for children to create one of a kind artwork, which is then reproduced on personal keepsakes: mugs, keychains, tote bags, pillows, shirts, etc. An art sheet, with attached directions, was sent home with students last week. Art is to be completed at home and turned into the classroom teacher by MONDAY, OCTOBER 16th. This project is not mandatory, but encouraged, and makes great gifts! Encourage your children to have fun with this project and create a special piece of art! Online ordering of keepsake items will take place at a later date. One masterpiece per child please.
D39’s Annual Family Bingo Night on October 20th at 6pm at the Wilmette Masonic Lodge! Enjoy multiple rounds, multiple winners, multiple prizes! Admission – $15 per person (includes one Bingo Card) $5 each additional card. Pizza, salad, chips and sodas available for purchase.
Destination Imagination (DI) is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization. Our purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, we offer seven new standards-based Challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning. Each Challenge is open-ended and enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation. Academic tournaments take place where teams have the opportunity to present their solutions to trained appraisers. Students have fun and gain confidence in their ability to solve any challenge. In working to solve our Challenges, teams learn 21st century skills (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, citizenship and courage) to build on their unique strengths.
We have TWO DI PROGRAMS at Romona:
1. Rising Stars! Program
2. Challenge Program
Each Challenge is designed to engage students to learn 21st century and higher-order thinking skills by teaching them the creative process from imagination to innovation. The program teaches students how to think, not what to think. Students that solve the Challenges have fun and learn the skills of creativity, critical thinking, self-confidence, self-determination, presentation and collaboration. We want to enable students to identify, build on, and celebrate their unique strengths.
DI is NOT under the auspices of the Romona PTA. If you are interested in having your child(ren) participate in Destination Imagination, and/or, if you would like to be a part of the Romona Destination Imagination experience, registration begins at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year! Please contact Meghan Mills at email@example.com with any questions! It will be an incredible experience!
