Destination Imagination Team
Many of you may have already heard but we wanted to be sure to pass on to everyone the exciting news that our High School Destination Imagination team has made it to Globals. This is the first time a Saranac team has ever made it to this level of competition. The students on this team are: Isaac Hooker, Julianna & Audra Hawkins, Laensa Dibaba and Bethany Steele. Their team manager is Lisa Hooker and April Steele is our D.I. Coordinator.
Globals competition is in Knoxville, TN at the University of Tennessee, May 20-23.
Saranac has been doing Destination Imagination (formerly Odyssey of the Mind) for just around 30 years. This is a pretty historical and exciting accomplishment for our students, our school and our community. If you see these students around the school (they will be practicing a lot these next few weeks - in the Multi-purpose room at the Elem. school) congratulate them on a fantastic job. We are very proud of them.
We are also busy fundraising to go to Globals. It will cost approximately $5,000.00 to get our team there for the 4 days of competition. You will be hearing about some of their upcoming fundraisers, but we also want everyone interested to know that we are seeking sponsorships for our team. We will be putting an article in the Sentinel Standard, Shopper's Guide and Focal Point to recognize our sponsors. Bronze Level - $50.00+, Silver Level - $100.00+, Gold Level $250.00+, and Platinum Level $500.00+
If you would like to be a sponsor, checks can be made out to Saranac Community Schools (put Destination Imagination or D.I. in the memo) and submitted to any of the school offices. Thank you for your encouragement and support.

Back The Track...
The Saranac community track needs help. Community members want to spread the word in hopes to raise awareness and money to redo the local track. When one thinks about a track, most people think of the sport, track and field. However, it really is used by so many community members. Our elementary "mileage club" utilizes the track for their timed miles. The younger ones also participate in our summer running club right along with their older siblings and peers. The track is a vital part of the community and is used by neighbors, whether to get in a run or walk with friends. Please help by donating and passing the word.
