BoxTops For Education

A Huge Thank You to Dynamic Design for leading the school's sustainable fundraising. This year they organized the boxtops drives and the labels for education. The $2400 raised was divided among the 12 learning communities giving each $200.00 towards field trips. The students learned some very important details to be careful about when collecting box tops and labels. They have started on next year's collection, and hope that everyone will continue to collect over the summer.

Dynamic Design Creates A Carnival!

Dynamic Design students planned, designed, and executed a carnival on Thursday for the Investigator team.  There were numerous activities for kids to participate in ranging from face painting, sack races, tug-of-war, balloon tosses, and so much more.  Students from the 7/8 community even created a concession stand where the Investigators could trade in their tickets for valuable prizes.  The carnival ended with a huge raffle drawing with lots of cool prizes.  The Investigator team wants to give a huge thank you to the students of Dynamic Design for their hard work.  We had so much fun that we thought we were at a REAL carnival!
