Environmental Science and Biology Classes Attend NWS Storm Spotter Class
On Friday, March 9, Mrs. Minor’s Environmental Science and Biology classes traveled to St. John’s Church for a Storm Spotter Class presented by the National Weather Service from Goodland, Kansas. The purpose of the class was to learn how to spot approaching storms and be able to accurately report what we’re seeing and where we’re seeing it from.
Attendees were shown a wide variety of photos and videos of recent weather events, and learned to identify cloud characteristics that could indicate severe weather is approaching. We learned to distinguish between non-threatening “scud clouds”, to identifying characteristics within a storm cloud that could indicate a funnel cloud, hail, rain shield, or even a tornado. Small groups were given photos of clouds or evidence left from a severe weather event and asked to give a verbal report of what we would say to the National Weather Service.
The National Weather Service in Goodland said these brief reports from people who are witnessing a weather event are essential for pinpointing location and receiving accurate, up-to-date information. This information is then used to issue severe weather watches and warnings.
We want to say a special thank you to the ladies of FCE for sponsoring this event, as well as everyone in the community who contributed to the wonderful food items for brunch and our potluck lunch. We sincerely appreciate it.

FCE SPONSORS CHARACTER COUNTS
Once again FCE (Family, Community, and Education) has sponsored the national program of Character Counts. The essay is written by 4th graders. The first three are sent to the country level and the county sends the first place essay to State. If they win at State, it is sent to the National level.
Idalia winners are Natalie Helling-1st Place, Trista Richards-2nd Place, and Brigette Kite-3rd place.
 
FFA
FFA Week was eventful for the Idalia FFA Chapter. We began our week with our Farmer Appreciation Breakfast. At the breakfast, we served our local farmers donuts and coffee to show our gratitude for everything they do. On Tuesday, several members of our chapter rode their horse or drove their tractor to school even though it was a chilly morning!  Wednesday, our chapter wore our FFA t-shirts. Thursday, was Barnyard Day. Our barnyard included rabbits, horses, cows, pigs, chickens, ducks, donkeys, and sheep. On the final day of FFA week, Friday, we held Ag Olympics. The activities that were completed consisted of throwing a hay bale, a sack race, hammering nails, and roping- the fastest person won! All members enjoyed the fun activities that FFA week entailed!
The Idalia FFA member sale was held on February 27. Forty members were sold at this year’s auction! Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the FFA. We would like to extend a special thank you to Brent Jacobsen, our auctioneer, and Dustin Weyerman, Jeremy Juhnke, Greg Devlin, Bob Brenner, Bob Lippert, Ken Brenner and Cole Fletcher for cooking oysters and chicken strips.

MIDDLE LEVEL FBLA COMPETES WELL AT STATE FBLA
Twenty-four eager seventh and eighth grade students traveled to Denver, Colorado for their Middle Level FBLA State Conference. The conference was held at the Finance Park at American Furniture Warehouse. Students not only had the opportunity to compete but also had the opportunity to develop their budgeting skills. Each student was assigned an occupation, salary, marital status, children or no children, working or non working spouse, and then had to budget and shop for this family. Stocks, savings, banking, and budgeting activities were the skills that had to be developed. Students were given iPads to use to track their spending. It was an exciting and educational day.
Students who had prepared for presentation events had to present their projects that day. Most of the students had already completed their written test online ahead of time. First place winners are National qualifiers. Students competing and placing included:
Naidelin Estrada—1st Place—Elevator Speech
