December highlights from the Wolfpack!

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

Happy New Year!! In December, Missy Uyemura brought high school students from the summer drama camp to our elementary school to present an original play entitled, “Little Things Matter.” This play promotes the 5 R’s of Reduce, Refuse, Recycle, Repurpose, and Reuse. With a huge emphasis on comedy and even a couple of musical numbers, the show was a fast-paced collection of skits to help educate us about making better choices for our environment and to inspire us to believe that little things matter and can make a difference. I loved this play. It was conceived and written by Jen Jones and Missy Uyemura from Wray. Truly delightful to see the tremendous talent of our communities.

The day after the Christmas Program usually finds everyone dragging, but this year the Cliff Theater opened its door to help us celebrate the students’ fundraising efforts with a special showing of “How to Train Your Dragon in the Hidden World.” Just what everyone needed after a successful late evening Christmas program!

Coming in February will be a musical performance for the entire school by Burlington High School’s band and drum corp. Returning and representing the Cherry Creek Arts Organization on February 27th, Shaina Belton will bring her Art Cart to teach printmaking to the middle and high school students. 

Stay tuned for more fun in March and a chance to get your feet moving… hint, hint. Thank you again for your support of our Artists in Residence program.  Submitted by Cyndie Weyerman

 

IDALIA FBLA SUPPORTS THE MARCH OF DIMES

December has been a slower month with FBLA members preparing for competitions that will be held after the first of the year. The chapter did host a March of Dimes walk to raise money. March of Dimes is an organization that began with Franklin Delano Roosevelt and polio as the National Foundation for infantile paralysis. Once polio vaccines were developed, March of Dimes changed over to work on premature births. In the United States, 380,000 babies are born before 37 weeks, which means they are premature. This comes out to be one in every ten babies born will be premature. March of Dimes seeks to solve this problem with their Prematurity Campaign Activities. This tactic has five main categories: research and discovery, care innovation and community engagement, advocacy and education, finally family-centered newborn intensive care units. Since 1970, March of Dimes has raised over $1.8 billion. Out of this amount, the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) organization has raised $15 million in forty years. The Idalia FBLA Chapter wanted to help the March of Dimes fund by holding a walk for life event on Sunday, December 8, at 2 p.m. There were 23 participants, including Sue Terrell, Sydney Terrell, Luke Terrell, Emerson Terrell, Cleo Terrell, Ximena Cordova, Alma Cordova, Priscilla Cordova, Brandy Henrickson, Alyssa Jones, Hannah Carpenter, Allison Rice, Camren Morris, Naidelin Estrada, Kylie Wingfield, Macy Richards, Marek Cody, Yahir Enriquez, Aubrey Richards, Brisa Perez, Porscha Jacobs, Jenna Wieser, and Cloey Jones. In total $150 was raised and will be going to the March of Dimes organization. Thank you to the participants of the walk for helping this important organization.

IDALIA YOUTH IN COMMUNITY SERVICE

The IYCS group has been busy this past month with two big community service events at the end of November. The first activity was babysitting during the Cajun Boil fundraiser for the Cub’s Den Daycare on November 23. Members earned community service hours as they kept kids entertained while their parents were supporting and having fun at the dinner/fundraiser. The next day during the Health and Wellness three-on-three basketball tournament,  IYCS members filled many various roles including referees, scorers, and concessions workers. Congratulations to the winners of the tournament and thank you to those who supported the Cub’s Den. Idalia Youth in Community Service is an organization that is focused on bringing community service opportunities to students. IYCS will continue to bring these fun opportunities in the upcoming months and years. If you would like more information, contact Mrs. Amber Soehner, Sponsor.

SMALL GROUP TRAVELS TO AIMS COMMUNITY COLLEGE

On December 3, a small group of students left Idalia in the early morning hours and traveled to Windsor and Greeley, Colorado, to visit Aims Community College. Idalia students merged with students from Colorado Springs and began the tour in the Automotive Center’s Automotive Technology, Collision program, Fire Protection, and EMT programs. The facilities are spacious and staffed by professionals in their fields. Students then toured the Greeley campus visiting the Graphic Design, Robotics, Industrial Design, Construction Trades, and Welding programs. Students built tiny robots and raced to see which robot could get out of a mace first. Our students rocked with robots and Kavan Smith was the master. Our thanks to Justin Hardwick for chaperoning and lending his insights and experience in each program.
