March Highlights from the Wolfpack!

100 DAYS!
On March 6, the kindergarten class got to celebrate their 100th day of school! The day is filled with all things 100, and this year the students celebrated under the Big Top. The day started with our traditional 100 balloon pop where the students have to pop 100 balloons by sitting on them. We made a list of all the things we’ve learned in 100 days…like plural words, complete sentences, addition, and don’t steal the coffee! We used traditional carnival games like a duck pond and a ring toss to read 100 words and add to 100 using tally marks. We tried bowling down “tin cans” to add to 100-but we only made it to 76…I guess we still need to work on our bowling skills. We rolled and wrote 100 words then finished the day writing a story about “One day I went to the circus…”. Just for fun, we had a tight rope and practiced our skills jumping through a ring of fire. We also treated ourselves to some circus popcorn, soda, animal crackers, and 100 Smarties sorted into 10s groups.

HALL COMPETES AT SCIENCE FAIR
"Shocking Water" was the title of Tyler Hall's entry in the recent Regional Science Fair held at NJC. Hydrogen is a possible future energy source, and Tyler's project sought ways to increase the amount of hydrogen obtained through hydrolysis of water.  Tyler placed 4th in the overall junior high division, and 1st in the junior high chemistry division. He also earned some special awards including Director's Choice, and the NASA Earth System Science Award. He will compete at the state level on the CSU campus in April. Good luck Tyler!

NEW LUNCH MENU ITEM TASTE TEST
On February 28, the Idalia kitchen staff and Idalia Health & Wellness team presented a new lunch dish to the students and staff. Based on the popular pork tacos, the staff served TACOS AL PASTOR. A poster show-cased the dish, listing ingredients and pictures of the delicious lunch.
Excited to try the new menu item, students and staff placed a sticker indicating whether or not they liked or disliked the potential lunch dish. Tacos al Pastor was an overwhelming success, with 90% approval rating. Look forward to seeing this new item on our menu in the fall of 2019!

YOUTH BASKETBALL
This year's Youth Basketball Program concluded with a Spring Break tournament in Kit Carson. We had over 60 kids (1st-6th) participate in basketball this year. Our 1st and 2nd graders had a few practices and did a great job entertaining the crowd during a couple varsity half-time games. The 3-6th graders showed a lot of improvement during our weekly practices and various tournaments/games throughout the season. The future of Idalia basketball is promising with many kids coming up who seem to enjoy the game, play hard, and want to improve. None of this would be possible without the help of our parent volunteers/coaches. A huge thank you goes out to Sheena Terrell, Brian Lengel, Lisa Richards, Crystal Richards, Darla Northrup and Guy Terrell. We look forward to doing it again next year!
