October Highlights from the Wolfpack

Artists in Residence-On the Road in November
The PS-5th and high school art students learned the art of printmaking from Cherry Creek Arts artist Shaina Belton. Pictures were posted on the school’s Facebook page.
November will see our elementary students hitting the road for a trip to the Denver Center for Performing Arts. On Friday, November 2nd, the 3rd – 5th-grade students will be traveling to the Buell Theatre to watch the “Breakin’ Convention.” This is the world’s biggest festival of hip-hop dance theatre, showcasing the very best dance acts from around the world and around the corner.
Traveling on Wednesday, November 14, the 1st and 2nd grade students will be heading out early for a performance centered around a favorite children’s story, “Corduroy.” They will join Cor-duroy the teddy bear on his delightful chase through every section of the department store in search of his missing button. Following the performance, our students will engage with other students in a workshop conducted by the performers. Submitted by Cyndie Weyerman
 

FBLA Fall Leadership Conference
The 2019 FBLA Fall Leadership Conference was held on October 22 through the 23 in Vail, Colorado. Idalia took three members; Erik Estrada, Brian Jimenez, and Megan Waitman. Erik and Brian participated in workshops and tests, while Megan facilitated conference duties, ran workshops, and attended meetings. Workshops consisted of leadership skills and FBLA knowledge, such as business achievement awards, community service awards, and chapter projects. Members also crated tie blankets for Colorado FBLA’s Service Project, Fleece for Fighters, as a social activity. The chapters attending created over 120 fleece blankets that will be donated to Children’s Hospital. Great job Colorado FBLA.

Projects in Kindergarten
Every morning in kindergarten begins with a little activity to wake up our brains. Each month, we spend a week's worth of those mornings working on a STEM-based project. This month we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and got busy building our own Boom Boom Trees. Each student was given some building blocks of different shapes and sizes, five popsicle sticks to act as the branches of the tree, and the letters in their name. Their goal was to build the tallest tree using all the parts. The students had to work through many "boom boom" moments as their trees crashed down and they had to start over. If they built a tree successfully we measured it and then they knocked it down and tried to build a bigger tree. After some fabulous moments of persevering, the tallest tree was 19.5 inches!

Trick-or-Treating for Canned Food
On Sunday, October 28, the FBLA members trick or treated for Canned Goods in a competition with other chapters around the area. The chapter gathered about 750 pounds of canned good and await the results of the other chapter to discover the winner. Thank you for your support. Thank you to Lindsey Richards, Kris Glanz, Mindy Richards, Andrea Wingfield, and Sandi Wudtke for driving. Submitted by Hannah Carpenter, FBLA Reporter

Word Assassin
Word Assassin begins the week before Homecoming. It is an action-packed conversational "word" game. Sixth-12th grades each draw an individual "target" name with an "elimination" word behind it. The student must get the target to say that word.
If target says the word, they are assassinated and must give assassin their target.
This game creates hysteria, conversational strategy, and much trading of targets.
A student can win Word Assassin in two ways—most confirmed assassinated or making it to the final round of "Last Man Standing Tag." This year- Erik Estrada won Top Assassin with 10 confirmed target assassinations. Jace Juhnke won Last Man Standing Tag. Each student wins a $20 Amazon card. Submitted by Student Council
