Saturday Garage Sale Benefits Hayward Destination Imagination Team
The Di Garage Sale is scheduled Saturday, May 3, for the Destination Imagination team from Hayward Elementary School in Nebraska City.
The sale, bake sale and grilled burgers are available. The state champions have raised about 20 percent of the $15,000 they need to make the trip to the Destination Imagination Global Finals in Knoxville, Tenn., May 21-24.
Hayward's team, "The I Got Its!" are Ellie Higgins, Lilly Frields, Alyson Barr, Christian Tietz, Abbie Heiser, Daniel Reidy and Hannah Cardon. Team manager is teacher Carla Uhrmacher.
The fifth graders credited teamwork for placing first at regionals in Blair and first in the state at Kearney.
The I Got Its: "We all just work together so well. We've grown up together basically. We've been with eachother at least a year. We meditate. We all can get along. We know each other pretty good. We know eachother's types of thinking. And we also always know that even if we don't make it further, we've made it to where we were."
The students randomly draw a scenario that includes a timeline, current occupation, makeup and pandemonium. With 1 minute planning time, they create a five-minute skit.
At state, the historical figure was a bus driver, there current occupation was a dog walker and everyone had to walk with a cane.
The students' skit had the bus driver distributing fake legs. The dog walker's dog killed a monster that bit off everyone's leg.
It was more violent than they liked, but the students said they are used to having carcass control show up to clean up their their improvisations.
