Odyssey of the Mind
Competition Team Members Needed!
Dune Lakes Elementary is looking for team members to form an afterschool Odyssey of the Mind team to represent our school in the 2020 Emerald Coast Regional Tournament. If you are creative, good at solving problems and work well with others, you would be perfect for our team. Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem-solving program that engages students in their learning by allowing their knowledge and ideas to come to life in an exciting, productive environment. Participants build self-confidence, develop life skills, create new friendships, and are able to recognize and explore their true potential.
Selected students will work together to choose a long-term problem they wish to prepare for presentation during the competition. At the competition, students will also be required to compete in a spontaneous problem challenge. Students will practice a variety of these spontaneous problem challenges each week in preparation for the competition.
Students wishing to be a part of this exciting opportunity will need to be able to commit to all of the following events:
- November 2 or January 25, Spontaneous Fair at Riverside Elementary in Crestview
- February 22, Emerald coast Regional Tournament, Shoal River Middle & Riverside Elementary in Crestview
- Team meetings held every Wednesday afternoon from 2:15 PM to 4:15 PM.
If you feel that you would like to join this exciting team, at least one parent and the student must attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, September 18th at 3:00 PM in the Cafetorium to receive an application for the team.

The Chess Club works with the website chesskids.com which offers an excellent resource for beginner to advanced lessons.
The goal for the Checkmate Chess Club is to teach the students how to play chess and to enjoy game time with each other. The club has plans for a chess tournament in the Spring.
