A team of students from Salisbury Elementary School did the town proud not long ago, coming in second in a Destination ImagiNation tournament held at Triton Regional High School.
Dedicated to teaching creativity, teamwork and problems solving, Destination ImagiNation promotes the skills and holds tournaments with teams of students of all ages. In Massachusetts alone, there are 700 Destination ImagiNation teams representing private and public schools, homeschoolers, recreation departments, Boys and Girls clubs, etc.
Salisbury's Destination ImagiNation team is "Seven Unique Random Flavors"; after its great showing at Triton, it will now go to the state tournament, planned for Worcester Saturday.
The team consists of Mitchell Wolpert, Luke Groder, Ryan Farrell, Nick Perrault, Brittney Nalesnik, Tyler Jacobs, Meaghan Jacobs and the team manager is Karen Jacobs. They are all to be congratulated.
