Mini Course Night Help

MINI COURSE NIGHT, FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2020 — SAVE THE DATE!!!

We are so excited for Mini Course Night (MCN) but we need your help! Your child will have the option to choose from exciting classes such as: magic trick training, slime making, cooking fun, art classes, martial arts, musical instruction, etc. All workshops are offered free of charge or only a nominal fee to cover materials! If you are looking for a way to help, please consider picking up a few small gift cards in $5 or $10 increments to popular locales such as Target, Starbucks, etc. to donate to the wonderful instructors as a way to thank them for volunteering their time. Or, you can CLICK HERE to donate via PayPal (enter “MCN” in the notes when completing your payment).

Destination Imagination

Interested in a fun, innovative, team-building experience?

Destination Imagination teams are beginning to form for the winter/spring DI season. This program is a fun, hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage and curiosity through open-ended academic Challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts and service learning. Our participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem-solving process. Teams may showcase their solutions at the local tournament on Saturday, March 7, 2020 in Circleville, OH. If you are interested in learning more about DI, check out this site:https://www.destinationimagination.org/.

Interested?

Email Kristina at kvanbuskirk@gmail.com of your interest. Kristina will try to match you with same grade peers. Don’t forget each team needs at least one team manager (parent volunteer).

Starting a new team or have an existing team?

Email Kristina with the name of your team manager, list of team member names and grades. This information is needed for administrative and insurance purposes.  If you want to use a room at Bailey after school, please contact Kristina for instructions.
