OUR AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Destination Imagination Program
KIDS CAN BE EMPOWERED TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
The Destination Imagination (DI) global community is united by a core belief that when students have the freedom to grow and collaborate without boundaries, their confidence explodes and the world opens up to them in new ways. We enable this transformation by providing challenges rooted in STEAM subjects that inspire unique solutions through the use of the creative process. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to tell their story, share their unique creations, and be celebrated for what they've accomplished. Through witnessing this process of creative self-expression and validation, students blossom into more confident and knowledgeable individuals.
LOS NIÑOS PUEDEN SER EMPODERADOS PARA CAMBIAR EL MUNDO.
La comunidad global de Destination Imagination (DI) está unida por la creencia fundamental de que cuando los estudiantes tienen la libertad de crecer y colaborar sin límites, su confianza explota y el mundo se abre para ellos de nuevas maneras. Permitimos esta transformación brindando desafíos arraigados en temas STEAM que inspiran soluciones únicas mediante el uso del proceso creativo. Creemos que cada niño merece la oportunidad de contar su historia, compartir sus creaciones únicas y ser celebrado por lo que ha logrado. Al ser testigos de este proceso de validación y autoexpresión creativa, los estudiantes se convierten en personas más seguras y conocedoras.
Fun, friendship and new adventures are what Girl Scouts is all about. Girls make new friends, challenge themselves, write their own stories, and take action to change the world for the better.
How? Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience:
Girl-led: Girl Scouts follow their own lead, no matter their age.
Learning by Doing: Hands-on activities help them feel empowered to shape their own experience.
Cooperative Learning: With a tight-knit group of friends, Girl Scouts learn and grow together while cheering on each other.
Activities in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience focus on four key areas:
- Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
- Life Skills
The PLAY Initiative, part of Engage 360, is a co-curricular, instructional sports development initiative available to students in grades 4-6. The PLAY Initiative addresses equitable access to learning and enrichment by providing an opportunity for students to practice and internalize the skills, attitudes, and knowledge acquired in the physical education classroom through their participation in sports activities and games outside the regular school day.
PLAY serves as a pathway for kids to tap into their cultural capital and connects students to popular athletic culture as a way of grabbing their attention and connecting it to their interests in activities and sports, many of which they have never played. The initiative aims to provide students and teachers with the following:
- Fun activities in a safe and professionally supervised environment.
- Training for teachers/coaches to have the capacity to help students of all ability levels feel comfortable participating in sports beyond their physical activity time.
- Opportunities to participate in a variety of diversified sports and physical activities without regard for high performance skill or ability.
- A focus on increasing self-esteem, positive social interactions, and having fun while participating in sports.
- Nurturing a healthy spirit of competition, sportsmanship and teamwork.
- Opportunities for students to learn about the sports that they will have the option to participate in during 7th grade Athletics.
Mission Statement: Our mission is to provide a safe and inclusive environment for all children to develop their athletic skills, build confidence, and learn the value of teamwork and sportsmanship. We are committed to promoting equity in sports and ensuring that every child, regardless of their background or abilities, has the opportunity to participate and succeed. Through our after-school sports program, we aim to inspire and encourage young athletes to pursue their passions and reach their full potential, both on and off the field.
Vision Statement: Our vision is to create a future where all students have access to enriching and enjoyable sports experiences, regardless of their abilities. We aspire to be a leader in promoting equity in sports and physical education, and to empower students to lead active and healthy lives. Our program will be recognized as a dynamic and inclusive co-curricular program that nurtures the growth and potential of every student.
