A busy February for the Wolfpack

5th graders were learning about renewable and non-renewable resources last month. Students build these legs wind turbines to see how they are able to generate energy. Submitted by Sue Heath, 5th Grade Teacher
In a nutshell...My name is Tosha Wise. I am many things: mother, artist, wife, gardener, avid reader, and owner of 12 chickens. Home is a small town; if you blink you might miss while driving through. My two boys and husband keep life interesting and ground me. My roots are firmly planted on the prairie. I glean all my inspiration from the landscape, native flora/fauna, agriculture, and the people that make up this community.
I have been making art since I can remember, but I launched my studio in 2016. My days have been full of commissions and my own work. The mediums I use are colored pencil and charcoal. Colored pencil is con-trolled/detail oriented and charcoal work is free/dramatic.
Leather tooling is my newest passion. Taking raw material and transforming it with line, depth, texture, and color/dye is fascinating and addicting. I am eagerly looking forward to the new year and pushing this craft with more designs and products.
On Monday, February 26, the Idalia High School participated in a mock crash. The mock crash was part of the FBLA Chapter’s Project Arrive Alive. Fifty four high school students and four advisers watched as the Emergency Services teams from Idalia--fire and ambulance, Kirk Ambulance--along with the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado State Patrol, Med Evac of Northeastern Colorado, and the Yuma County Coroner’s office worked the accident scene.
Six FBLA members (Rex Fell, Talon Glanz, Garrett Hurlburt, Madison Wells, Maddisen Hoyda, and Aubrey Richards) participated as victims in this t-bone accident--two walking wounded, two in critical condition, one texting and driving, and one deceased. This mock crash made students more conscious of the fact that driving distracted can affect not only you, but your peers also. After all victims were airlifted, ambulanced or taken into custody, there was a mock trial at the Yuma County Court House in Wray. The texting and driving case was held with the students participating on the jury. Overall, this activity made the students more aware of how their actions can have consequences.
A special thanks to all who helped make this project happen. Lots of hours of meetings and planning went into this project. Without everyone’s cooperation, this would not have been able to happen.
Twenty-six members of the Idalia FBLA Chapter competed at the District 3 Leadership Conference on February 8, 2018. Congrats to all. Members will go on to represent their school in Vail, Colorado, at the State Leadership Conference in April.

On Thursday, February 22, Brandy Henrickson and Zandi Sloan traveled to Pueblo with Miss Caron for the Festival of Winds. To start off the festival, they auditioned for chair placement in one of the four bands that would perform that weekend. Each band had a distinguished guest clinician including one from Colorado Springs, one from Texas, one from Canada, and one from Australia. Shout out to Brandy for landing second chair flute in her band! Friday and Saturday they spent rehearsing in their ensembles, attending master classes, and having sectional rehearsals for their instruments.
Over the course of the three-day event, the participants were also treated to a variety of excellent concerts with performances by Pikes Peak Brass ensemble, the Airforce Academy Jazz Band – the Falconaires, the Denver School of the Arts Wind Ensemble, the CSU Jazz Band, the CSU Wind Ensemble, and the Top of the Hill band made up of all the directors.
The final concert consisted of each of the four student ensembles performing the pieces they had been working on. Our students did an excellent job, made new friends, heard lots of great music, and each had the opportunity to play with a full band of over 80 students! We are so proud of our Idalia Wolves and their participation in such a high-level prestigious event like the Festival of Winds! Submitted by Johanna Caron, Idalia Music
The Idalia Youth Basketball program is going strong. We have over 60 1st-6th grade students participating this year. The kids are staying busy with weekly practices along with participating in numerous tournaments. Along with hosting our own tournament in January, we took our future Wolves to tournaments in Goodland, St. Francis, and Benkelman, with plans to attend two more tournaments in March. The kids are working hard, having fun, and getting better. Highlighting this month's success was our 3rd/4th Grade girls team who went undefeated and won the Benkelman Tournament, along with our 5th/6th Grade girls team who took 3rd place in a very competitive tournament. The quantity and quality of kids coming up in our school is exciting. We can't wait to see what this group does as they continue to work hard and grow. Submitted by Myles Johnson, Principal
