Dolores Destination Imagination students perform in Durango

Two teams to head to state

DOLORES ELEMENTARY School's Destination Imagination team, The Little Gummy Bears, pose before performing in Durango last Saturday. Their team, a Rising Stars Team, was not part of the competition, but two other teams from Dolores qualified for the state competition. Pictured from left to right: David Vreeken "Speedy Wings the Blue Hummingbird"; Kayla Tallmadge, "Pinchmaster the Indigo Leprechaun"; Emmie Beckler "Sparkles the Violet Unicorn"; Maya Ross "Ginger the Yellow and Orange Fairy"; Dylan Koskie "Elron the Green Elf"; Gavin Livick "ROY G BIV the chameleon"; and Analisa Vega "Scarleta the Scarlet Macaw." The first-graders designed their own costumes and wrote their own play to perform in Durango.

Following great performances in Durango March 23 at the Destination Imagination competition, the Dolores Elementary School will have two teams going to state competition on April 13. The Lavinators and Team Revelation will compete for a spot on the global team.

Elementary School Principal Sherri Maxwell handed out certificates on Friday during Character Day for all participants.
