January highlights from the Wolfpack!

Idalia Jr. High and Sr. High Teams both captured second place at the 2020 YWKC Knowledge Bowl hosted by Hi-Plains in Seibert, Colorado on January 20. The competition began with a written round consisting of 60 questions followed by four oral rounds each consisting of 50 questions. There were nine teams in attendance at both levels. The competition was especially fierce at the High School Level with Idalia losing to Arickaree by only two points. Congratulations to both teams! Way to go!

The elementary has been busy finishing TWO challenges for our Book Challenge. On December 18, students completed challenge #2. Readers had to select, read, and rate an outdoor adventure book. Students that completed the challenge earned a pair of fuzzy socks-perfect for snuggling up with a blanket and book! Challenge #3 ended on January 17. This challenge had readers select a book written the year their parents were born. Students earned a keychain for this challenge. Currently, our Idalia readers are working on challenge #4-students need to select a graphic novel for this book. Challenge #4 ends February 13. Remember, it’s not too late to complete the challenges! They just need completed in order. It’s okay to turn challenge slips in late! Happy Reading!

Every year the Y-W Electric Association, Inc. sends one student to attend an amazing opportunity in Washington, DC. where they learn about co-ops, the electrical industry, and meet several members of Congress.
The Youth Tour will begin in Denver on June 13 with a visit to the state capital building. Then the students will head to Washington, DC. to meet with Colorado’s Congress members, tour the sites, and acquire more knowledge about the entirety of the electrical field. In addition to learning about electricity the student will attend the theatre, float on the Potomac River, experience the National Cathedral, visit the Arlington National Cemetery, see Mount Vernon, as well as roam through other museums and monuments. Sadly, this fun and culture filled experience will end on June 25.
This year the Y-W Electric delegate is from Idalia High School—a junior—Brandy Henrickson. She will join many other students from co-ops across the nation, not just Colorado, for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Family Fitness Sundays and the BBRacers will return again this year to Idalia! We will be having our practices the three Sundays prior to elementary field day to help our elementary athletes prepare for their big day! So, mark your calendars to join us from 2-4 p.m. each of these Sundays: April 19, April 26, and May 3!

To show support of the American Enterprise system, the Idalia FBLA conducted several projects with kindergarten through 6th grades. Different grades levels were asked to do different activities from color a picture of a career, to drawing a picture of a career , or describe what American enterprise was. We received some amazing answers like soldiers, farmers, office workers, teachers, and many more. The students received coupons to the concession stand or vending machines as a prize. 

On January 18 and 19, Idalia held our annual Youth Basketball Tournament. The Idalia teams did well and each tasted victory—highlighted by the 3/4th grade boys finishing as undefeated champions! Along with giving our future Wolves an opportunity to learn and play the game, the tournament serves as a fundraiser for our high school programs so they can attend summer camps and tournaments. The tournament takes a lot of work, and I would like to thank everyone who helped. It takes a collective effort, and I appreciate everyone who chipped in. To name a few: Sheena Terrell, Dara Weyerman, Darla Northrup, Brian Lengel, and Kyle Kite for helping coach and help plan/run the tournament; Brad Wingfield and Cory Zion and their high school teams for providing all the labor throughout the weekend; and Andrea Wingfield and Megan Zion for running concessions. And a special thank you to the Glanz and Morris families/boys (and Coy Zion) for always being willing to stay and help clean/set up the gym without ever being asked to. Idalia hoops has a bright future and our youngsters are eager to keep improving at more tournaments/games this year.

For the physics timer project, the students were tasked with creating a device that measured time within a 30-second interval. The winners in were; Cloey Jones in 1st place, Macy Richards in 2nd place, and Brandy Henrickson in 3rd place.
Cloey’s projects used a plastic water bottle with a flip top that could open and close. She filled the bottle full of liquid and put two drops of red food coloring into the water. In the beaker that was catching all the water, she added two drops of blue food coloring, so when the colors mixed, it would create a purple looking effect. For her to get the water to flow out in 30 seconds she made three small knife holes in the bottom of the bottle. Her final time was 30.04 seconds.
Macy’s project was a marble track made of plastic. Her time was a little over 30 seconds.  Brandy’s project involved marbles, PVC pipe, and a pegboard. She had about seven layers held up by hooks and tape. Her time was a little under 30 seconds. Nice work ladies!

Idalia middle level (6th-8th grades) spelling bee winners were Callie Richards-2nd Place and Natalie Helling-1st Place. Words were taken from the Scripps National School Spelling Bee list.
