LISD Pancake Breakfast - Sat. May 9

Enjoy A Yummy Breakfast & Support Destination Imagination!

LISD Destination Imagination Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser

Come and enjoy a hearty breakfast with your family at the Applebee's Restaurant in Lakeline on Saturday May 9, from 8:00am-10:00am and help a good cause.

Leander ISD's Destination Imagination program has grown over the years with more teams advancing to both State and Globals than ever before. This year, we had 14 teams place at State and 8 teams advanced on to compete at Global Finals in Knoxville, Tennessee. However, due to state budget cuts, LISD is faced with the financial burden of sending our teams to the D.I. tournaments.

Here's how you can help -- purchase a pancake breakfast ticket.

For just $10 per ticket, your breakfast selections include: pancakes, bacon, sausages, eggs, and potatoes and comes with coffee, tea, juice and soft drinks.

LISD will receive half the amount towards the newly formed, D.I. Activity Fund, while you get to start off your day with a relaxed and yummy meal. Cash and checks are accepted. Checks should be made payable to: Leander ISD D.I. and include your driver's license and phone number. Donations are greatly appreciated! Please be sure to keep it separate from the ticket amount.

Limited tickets available. Tickets must be purchased in advance and can be picked up here at IQuest (host to two Global Finals D.I. teams: the CRMS DI Drift & the LWBE DI Creators) . Please call us at 512-537-7664 or email to reserve your tickets!

The Destination Imagination Challenge Program

Destination Imagination (DI) is a volunteer-led nonprofit organization whose 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 students to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation. Academic tournaments take place around the world 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), step outside of their comfort zones to pursue ideas and make presentations, and build on their unique strengths.

After weeks spent creating, developing and practicing their solutions, they compete at the regional tournament. Top-scoring teams in both combined Central Challenge and Instant Challenge components advance to state. The top level of the tournament is our Global Finals—the world’s largest celebration of creativity.

Our programs are developed annually to ensure they are relevant and align to National Education Standards, STEM standards, ELA Common Core Standards and Mathematics Common Core Standards. Every year, with the help of parent volunteers, educators, and subject matter experts, we design new and exciting Challenges for student teams to solve.
