DI Update

December 18, 2015

Latest News

It has been a while since I have sent out an update, so I wanted to catch everyone up! Unfortunately, Cayden decided not to be on our team after all, so that leaves us with 5 girls remaining. They also selected "The Immortal Chocolate Checkm's" as their team name. (It sounds odd, but DI names are always unique.) They incorporated input from each member, and used everyone's initials.

Last week, the girls made a lot of progress. They worked on the plot and characters for their story for the "Get a Clue" mystery challenge. They also started working on their opening. It looks great so far, and they seem to be having a lot of fun!

Goals for Next Time

1) Practice Instant Challenge

2) Finish Script

3) Continue Practicing Opening

4) Brainstorm Costumes, Set, and Props

Holiday Practice Dates

December 19th--Practice

December 26th--No Practice

December 29th--Make Up Practice (If you are available)

January 2nd--Practice

Practices will continue to be 3:00 to 5:00. We will extend to 5:30 once the girls have everything planned out. If you can't make a practice over the break, please don't worry! The girls are going to be working on costume and set design, so having someone out won't slow them down.
