Some of the juniors and seniors have been studying blood and the circulatory system in the Anatomy and Physiology class. The students decided to participate in a blood donation to correlate with what they were learning about in their lessons. On Thursday, April 26, 2018, Mrs. Soehner’s Anatomy and Physiology class traveled to Yuma, Colorado, to donate blood. The people in attendance included: Mrs. Soehner, Jacey Jones, Madison Wells, Maddisen Hoyda, Brian Jimenez, Crystal Cordova, Chelby Dull, Ysabelle Mireles, and Payton Jacobs. They also went to the Yuma Hospital and got to take a tour of where Mrs. Soehner worked and learned how things worked inside of a hospital. Submitted By Kehlsie Juhnke

For over a month, 25 motivated student-athletics in Preschool through 8th grades, along with some amazing adult sponsors, have put the rubber to the road in training for the Bolder Boulder.  Although not all will compete in the race, the students and adults meet twice a week, Mondays and Wednesdays, after school for training! Each week, our number of participants continue to grow.  The more the runners, the more the fun!
While training, one goal for the students was to combine their mileage to "run" the 170 miles to Boulder.  We met that goal in just THREE weeks!  We now hope to "run" across the state and beyond!  You can follow our progress on the bulletin board in the lunchroom!  
Our training will all lead to the Bolder Boulder on May 28th.  As part of the BBRacer Program, the registered participants will get to meet the professional running athletes the night before the race, eat dinner with them, and stay the night in the CU-Boulder dorms....a fun pre-college experience!


The Idalia FBLA members competed at State FBLA in Vail, Colorado on April 19-21.  Megan Waitman was elected as the 2018-2019 State FBLA President for Colorado.  Breann Shaffer and Brian Jimenez placed 2nd in Partnership with Business and qualified for Nationals.  Aubrey Richards placed 1st at State in Website Design and qualified for Nationals.  These 4 students will be heading to Baltimore, Maryland the end of June to compete at Nationals. 
The 2018 Idalia High School Track season is off to a great start. There have been a total of four meets, excluding one pole vault meet. Due to the rainy weather, some track meets have had to of been canceled. Thirteen students came out for track this year, and all 13 have worked very hard in their events whether it’s running, throwing, or jumping. Students don’t only try their best during meets, but also during practice. With the help of Coaches Kelli Kite and Darla Northrup, the Idalia track team always tries to accomplish their goals.

The Idalia Youth Basketball program concluded with a late March tournament in Cheyenne Wells. All four of our teams came away with medals by placing in the top three of their respective divisions. I would like to thank all of our volunteer coaches for their help this year: Lindsey Richards, Sheena Terrell, Lisa Richards, Darla Northrup, Dara Weyerman, Brian Lengel, Jodi Morris, Ross Morris, Brad Wingfield and Cory Zion. Throughout the season, the kids worked really hard, showed improvement, won a lot of games, and hopefully had as much fun as I did. We look forward to getting back after it again next year!

The week before spring break the seniors decided they needed some extra time off, so they convinced Miss Caron and Mrs. Soehner to take them to Orlando, Florida. (or the week before spring break the seniors and their sponsors took off for Orlando, Florida.)
After arriving in Florida at the airport they headed to their resort rental, ordered pizza, and settled in. The next morning they got up bright and early and headed to Disney’s Magic Kingdom. After spending a fun morning there, the group took a jaunt over to Epcot Center to pursue the park’s cultural intricacies and find something good to eat. They then returned to Magic Kingdom to finish off the day with more magical fun and fireworks. The entire party was exhausted by the end of the day, but after a good night’s rest, they got up early again and headed out to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They spent the morning there enjoying the fun rides, the beauty of the park, the animals, and the myriad of shopping. Taking the afternoon off was in order so they headed back to the resort to relax at the house, enjoy the lazy river and Jacuzzi.
Returning to the park they had more fun, enjoyed a fine dinner at the Rain Forest Café and saw the beautiful Tree of Life lit up at night. The next morning they got to sleep in a little and were treated to a fabulous breakfast that Jacey and Kehlsie made. Then it was off to Gatorland, a place filled with large, dangerous reptiles. Once there, the students and sponsors suited up and headed up into the air for an hour and a half zip lining adventure. Then the students were off again for an afternoon at the beach.
That night, they had a last hurrah dinner at a fabulous restaurant called the Melting Pot, a delicious fondue supper. After supper we headed out to find the sling-shot for Madi and Crystal. Mean-while, the rest of the group went over to the rest of the little carnival park and rode some rides. To finish off the evening everyone got their need for speed realized with a Go-Cart Race. The students did such a good job of driving, with no accidents, that the people running it clapped for them as they left.
They headed back to the house one last time, packed up, cleaned up, and took one more dip in the backyard pool. The sponsors hit the sack, but most of the students stayed up for the few hours before departure time. Their fun adventure had come to a close so they returned to the airport where they traveled back to Idalia with sunburns and tan lines, a variety of treasures, and memories that will last a lifetime!

On Saturday, April 21, Miss Caron and a number of middle school and high school musicians headed up to Overland High School for Solo and Ensemble Competition. They played multiple solos and ensembles for various judges, then received valuable feedback on their performances to aid them as they continue to grow as musicians.
Congratulations to Dawn Rice, Tyler Hall, and Schuyler Prentice for their Superior ratings. Shout out to Zandi Sloan, Brandy Henrickson, Dawn Rice, Alli Rice, and Kavan Smith for receiving Excellent and Good ratings on their performances. It was a great day of music making and learning for our Idalia musicians! Submitted by Johanna Caron, Music Instructor
