November Highlights from the Wolfpack

Artist in Residence
Thanks to the Artist in Residence program, Idalia's 1st and 2nd graders had the privilege of seeing the play Corduoroy at the Denver Performing Arts Theatre. After the performance, we participated in an actor's workshop and learned about putting actions and vocals into our characters. Our stu-dents had a great time! Submitted by Sandi Wudtke
 
FFA Chapter Speaking Night
On November 13, 2018, the Idalia FFA chapter held its annual Chapter Speaking Night. There were 18 creed speakers, 2 extemporaneous speeches, and 1 prepared speech. The top two people from each category are moving on to compete at the District IX Speaking Competition on December 3, 2018, at the Hi-Plains School. The Creed winners were Camren Morris-1st Place and Marek Cody-2nd Place. The extemporaneous speech winners were Tyson Richards-1st Place and Dax Towns-2nd Place. The prepared speech winner was Annika Merry. Good Job to all the winners and good luck at districts. Submitted by Tyson Richards
 
Health & Wellness-Mother/Son Bowling
On November 4, 17 boys and their moms enjoyed a fun afternoon at Century Lanes Bowling. Sponsored by Idalia Health & Wellness, the “couples” had a great afternoon complete with pizza and bowling. The event was well-received and we look forward to hosting another event like this in the future. A special thanks to Judy Fuchs and Century Lanes for hosting and providing delicious pizza!

Thanksgiving dinner was a success. This year we had over 100 additional guests. I would like to thank all our volunteers who helped this year to make our event possible. Submitted by Griselda Cano
 
Operation Gratitude
For the 4th year, Idalia elementary students have participated in Operation Gratitude’s annual Halloween candy drive. This year, our school shipped over 48 pounds of candy to troops serving over-seas. This year’s winning class was the 5th grade class, having donated over 12½ pounds of candy. They are the recipients of the new Top Donator Trophy sponsored by Idalia Health & Well-ness. The shipping cost was generously donated by Dr. Melvin Dunn, DDS. A huge thanks goes to Idalia staff and students and Dr. Dunn!!! Submitted by Lynne Cody
 
UNC Math Contest
Two Idalia students recently participated in a math competition sponsored by the University of Northern Colorado. The test consisted of 10 questions to be answered in a 90-minute period.
Here is a sample question:
A prince’s castle was sealed in terror, for the Red Death stalked his land ill-fated. In his ballroom seven pairs of costumed lords and ladies were grandly feted. Seven different colors for seven pairs, their costume colors matched in pairs. For the grand finale a mysterious guest presided masqueraded. Each lady chose a random lord for the final dance. These mixed-up pairs were then picked in random order by the masked warder. Your devilish task is to compute the chance that the second pair so chosen was the first whose costumes matched. (Solution in next month’s newsletter!)
Each student’s results were sent in and graded. Thirteen hundred students from across the state took the test and students were invited to come to a solutions seminar on the UNC campus. Brandy Henrickson (sophomore) and Tyler Hall (8th grade) both showed great bravery and opted to participate and attend the seminar. Tyler Hall will be going back to UNC in January to compete in the final round. Good luck Tyler!
