Destination Imagination News

On Saturday, March 5, the West Jeff Middle School PTA Destination Imagination team, The Mountain Eagles, competed in the Jeffco DI tournament. This amazing group of seventh graders, Rowan J, Maisie M., Silar W., Sienna W., Luke S., Indyka F., and Lily W. took first place in the middle school level service-learning challenge, Into the Furture. In addition, they took home an extremely coveted DaVinci Award for outstanding creativity and risk taking. Congratulations to this truly outstanding team, and good luck at states.

We would love to expand this program and have lots of DI teams at West Jeff Middle. The only thing holding us back is to have adults to mentor and manage teams. You can find out more about DI at destinationimagination.org. If you like what you see and would like to discuss managing, contact Laurie Woulfe at lh.woulfe@gmail.com
