This Saturday, 3/24/18, the CMS Destination Imagination Team will compete at the State Tournament at Atlee High School. Good luck!
Destination Imagination is a program in which teams are formed of 2-7 students and together they work to create solutions to various challenges. CMS chose the Fine Arts Challenge, in which they had to create a two act musical that includes a change of plans. The students collaborated together to think critically and problem solve to develop their solution. The team had to create all of the props, write the script, and do all of the choreography for their 8 minute skit. In addition to choosing one challenge, the team also has to participate in an instant challenge. In an instant challenge, the teams are given one of three different tasks. It could be a performance based, task based, or a combination of both. No matter the task, the team is required to think on their feet and develop a solution as best as they can in the allotted time with points being awarded for teams that collaborate well together and think creatively.

CMS Kicks off The Middle School 30 Day Kindness Challenge 2/20/2018
WHAT IS THE MIDDLE SCHOOL KINDNESS CHALLENGE? The Middle School Kindness Challenge is an easy and free way to make kindness commonplace and improve school climate and student learning in the critical middle school years. Open to schools with any combination of grades 4-8, the Challenge offers best-in-class kindness activities to teach and foster kindness over a four-week period of the school’s choosing. By teaching kids how to practice kindness, be more empathetic, and manage their emotions and actions, they become better equipped to navigate our complex world, at school, at home, and online.
THE BENEFITS – Middle schools where teachers and school staff intentionally and systematically teach and foster kindness are more effective at helping students succeed, both in school and in life. Because we know this, the Middle School Kindness Challenge offers an engaging, exciting, and readily doable opportunity to:
- Improve school climate
- Reduce suspensions
- Foster Social & Emotional development
Parents, please see the link below on how you can support our Kindness Challenge.
