DI of the Tiger

Saltonstall – Destination Imagination

c/o 17 Moffatt Rd

Salem, MA 01970

April, 2016

On Saturday, March 26, a team of 4th and 5th grade students from Saltonstall Elementary School in Salem placed first place in their event at the Destination Imagination (DI) state tournament in Worcester. DI teaches 21st century skills and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) principles through creative and collaborative problem solving challenges. With your help, the team will be on their way to the global competition in Knoxville, Tennessee on May 24-28.

”DI of the Tiger” has been a team since kindergarten. Over the years, they have developed a team chemistry that was evident to both the DI regional and state appraisers of the Improvisational and Instant Challenges in which they competed. Nicholas Griffin, Casey Griffin, Jacob Piña-Harding, Chris Jackson, Annabelle Johnson, Liam Sullivan, and their managers, Artie and Kim Sullivan, have trained weekly for the past 5 DI seasons in order to reach this goal.

This is a once in a lifetime event full of educational, cultural and social interaction with other participants from 35 states and 14 countries. It takes place over 5 days at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

Please consider contributing to their tournament fund so they may have the honor of representing Salem, Massachusetts at DI Global Finals. The team is contacting you to ask for financial assistance to help with the costs of sending our team to Knoxville, TN. The total cost for our trip is estimated between $16,000 and $20,000. A contribution to our cause will go a long way in reaching our Goal!!

To follow the team’s progress, visit their Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/DIoftheTiger2016 . For more about DI Globals, visit: www.globalfinals.org

Thank you!!

“DI of the Tiger”

Procedures and Perspective, Part 1

July 24, 2012

Whether big or small, an organization has several divisions or players, each with their own respective procedures.  How they interrelate will have an impact on your operations and the ultimate success of your business.  The first step is to determine the following:

s        Do they know what their procedures are?

s        Is there a written resource for training, reference or a best practices document?

s        Are employees following the procedures or is the actual processes different than that stated?

s        Are the procedures consistent across divisions?

s        Are resources across divisions updated when changes are made?

s        Do they understand how their work affects your product or service?

Stay tuned for how to use this information to improve your business.

 Schooner Group is ready to assist you by assessing current business and identifying and controlling critical operations in order to improve the overall health and success of the business.  Once we get into the project, the business owner(s) recognizes the value of understanding and controlling the processes within the various aspects of their business.  Call today to arrange a free meeting to discuss your individual needs.
