Three of our Lakeway teams made it States from Regionals for Destination Imagination this year.  The team that did not make it placed second at the regionals but the are a middle school team so only first place goes to States. The tournament was Sunday in Bedford.  The Maniacs, a team of  second and third graders who are managed by Heidi Hurley, placed second which means they have the opportunity to participate in Globals in Tennessee.  The Pink Flamingo's are managed by Erin Hennessey and the placed third at the State level.  We were hoping that something could be printed in the paper.   It is pretty impressive the a north country team has made it this far!

 That team also won a special spirit award which stated:

 "This team embodies the Spirit of Di through their empathy, selfless sharing of time, and outreach not only to their community, but to another generation!  The appraisers were blown away by the team created illustrated book to show their journey of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, which they are representing to the Senior Center!  This young team emerged from their cocoons to become a school of butterflies."

 The team had the challenge READY, WILLING & Fable.  They had to come up with an idea of a community need and incorporate their project into a fable, which you will see.  The team has been reading to people at the senior center once a month.  The amount of joy that had poured out from this has been incredible to observe.
