Community Projects - Scales students' volunteer spirit shines through in many opportunities throughout the year, including two very special ones.

Destination Imagination - Scales always has several teams participate in Destination Imagination. All students are invited to participate. Teams must have a Team Manager (parent or volunteer). Destination Imagination (DI) is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization. The purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, they offer seven new standards-based Challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning. Each Challenge enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation. Watch for information on how to sign up and when the informational meeting is in the fall.
