The Destination Imagination team, “Clueless,” consisted of five 6th grade girls representing QMS at the regional DI competition this past Saturday. The team came in 2nd place in the Fine Arts challenge and will be competing at States on April 6th.
The team members are:
Daphne, Olivia, Molly, Jaden, and Ellie
The team also received special recognition for the highest points earned in the Instant Challenge portion of the competition for Fine Arts at the middle school level! We are so proud of our girls and how they represented QMS at the regional tournament!
Also, Meghan Ferguson, an 8th grader at QMS, participated in a multi-school group representing several HCPS schools, in the Scientific challenge group. Her team, “A Hint of Lime,” came in first place and will also be competing at the state competition!
The girls were thrilled to see four QMS teachers there as volunteers that day: Ms. Buckler, Ms. Brucker, Ms. Shimko, and Mr. Hall. They would like to especially thank Ms. Brucker who happily volunteered to be our team’s Appraiser volunteer. The team would’ve had to pay a $200 fee if we didn’t have an Appraiser. We thank them for their time and support of the DI program.
Good luck at States.

Battle Across Broad is turning 5 this year … and what a ride it’s been!
The battle started as a single game between Short Pump and Pocahontas to benefit Relay for Life. In the 4 years since its inception, 3 new schools have joined in the fun and helped raise over $30,000 in the Battle against cancer!
Yes, the committee does a lot of work on Battle, but at the end of the day, YOUR support makes this event what it is. YOU are our team, our volunteers, our source of student enthusiasm and participation, and our biggest t-shirt supporters J. THANK YOU for an amazing 5 years!
I humbly call on you once again to help move this train forward! 2019 has some big things in store …
- Our new Instagram (@battleacrossbroad) will make its first post soon! Follow and spread the excitement J
- We are returning to Glen Allen High School (because we nearly busted through the windows at Godwin)
- Cashwell will be joining us on the big night to see what Battle is all about
- AND … Battle is growing once more as the Hungary Creek Cougars join in the fun!
So mark your calendar for Thursday, March 7 at 5:30pm!
