5th Grade team returns to global tournament 

Almond Acres Charter Academy’s Ready Set Go Destination Imagination Team has qualified once again to compete at the Destination Imagination Global Finals Tournament in Kansas City, MO, May 22 through May 25.

Ready Set Go is a team of fifth grade students competing in the Project Outreach/Service Learning Challenge. For their service project they chose to raise funds for Lifewater International. The team received first place at the Regional Tournament on Feb. 23 and was also awarded the Renaissance Award, an honor for teams whose solutions have exceptional and outstanding skills in engineering, design, and performance. They placed third at the State Tournament on April 6, earning their invitation to Global Finals. The team members are: Lauren Fash, John “Jack” Hamon, Van Ogorsolka, and Kaile’a Stoltzfus.

In order to attend, the team is seeking sponsors to help cover the tournament fees and travel expenses associated with the trip. The team would like to thank Central Coast Home Health, Inc. and the Pritt family for being a primary sponsor. If you have interest in sponsoring this team, please contact Jill Ogorsolka at or call the school directly at 805-467-2095.
