The school district acknowledges that these students with outstanding abilities, talents, and potential for accomplishment require educational options to meet their diverse needs. The goal of our district’s gifted program is to offer appropriate and challenging learning experiences for our students with exceptional ability.

Destination Imagination is the largest problem-solving organization in the world. We are looking for teams of 2-5 students to show their strengths and talents. Students will be given a choice from a variety of challenges to complete and then will have the opportunity to shine by using their own unique abilities and talents. Parent volunteers are also needed to be team managers. Team managers cannot help with the team challenge, but they will help to facilitate the process. Team managers choose the day and time of team practices to best fit their schedule. For more information, visit: http://www.destinationimagination.org/.
