DI Information Night will be held Thursday, September 29th at 5:30pm at David Elementary.


Destination Imagination (DI) is an amazing and fun program that promotes creativity, problem-solving, team-building, project planning, and much more!


DI at David Elementary is open to 2nd-4th graders. David Elementary and CISD cover all team membership and tournament registration fees. Additionally, David provides classroom space for a limited number of teams to meet on-campus on Thursday afternoons. DI requires a firm commitment and parent volunteer support.


To participate in DI, you commit to BLOCK the day of Saturday, February 18, 2023 for the Regional DI Tournament (held at TWHS) and your child commits to attend and actively participate in weekly DI team meeting.


Also, DI at David can’t happen without parent volunteers! The number of teams is solely dependent on the number of parent volunteers for Team Manager. Please complete the Student sign-ups and Volunteer Form at: https://tinyurl.com/mr2ea44v
