Hello Ithaca families, This email is to remind parents that we will be using a behavioral screener for our Juniors:  mySAEBRS includes 20 items and can be completed by students in grades 2 through 12. Students complete mySAEBRS by logging into the FastBridge system on a computer or tablet device with a headset for audio directions. Students indicate how frequently they have displayed each behavior within the previous month, by selecting “Never,” “Sometimes,” “Often,” and “Almost Always.” Social Behaviors:  Behaviors related to age-appropriate relationships with peers and adults.Academic Behaviors:  Behaviors related to preparation, participation, and benefit from academic instruction.Emotional Problems:  Behaviors related to regulating internal states, adapting to change, and responding to stressful/challenging events. This is a new screener for Ithaca schools, and we hope that we can use the information to add programming based on the needs of the students.  We completed, or will soon complete this for grades 4-6.  Thank you, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

History for Today: One of the worst oil spills in U.S. territory begins when the supertanker Exxon Valdez, owned and operated by the Exxon Corporation, runs aground on a reef in Prince William Sound in southern Alaska. An estimated 11 million gallons of oil eventually spilled into the water. Attempts to contain the massive spill were unsuccessful, and wind and currents spread the oil more than 100 miles from its source, eventually polluting more than 700 miles of coastline. Hundreds of thousands of birds and animals were adversely affected by the environmental disaster. It was later revealed that Joseph Hazelwood, the captain of the Valdez, was drinking at the time of the accident and allowed an uncertified officer to steer the massive vessel.

It is National Alcohol and Drugs Facts Week March 22nd-26th . The fact is most Richland County youth do not use alcohol or drugs. This week we will shatter the perception that substance use is common among your peers. And we will shatter more myths to keep you in the KNOW about substance use. These messages are brought to you by Youth4Change of Ithaca HS. Marijuana use interferes with attention, motivation, memory, and learning. When used heavily during the teen years, it may lower grades and your IQ. Marijuana can be addictive. People who begin using marijuana before age 18 are more likely to develop marijuana use disorder than adults.

This Day in History: On March 15, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson used the phrase “we shall overcome,” borrowed from African American leaders struggling for equal rights; Johnson declared that “every American citizen must have an equal right to vote.” Johnson reminded the nation that the Fifteenth Amendment, which was passed after the Civil War, gave all citizens the right to vote regardless of race or color. But states had defied the Constitution and erected barriers. Discrimination had taken the form of literacy, knowledge or character tests administered solely to African Americans to keep them from registering to vote.

Last week our elementary classes celebrated Read Across America! We had dress up days and Mrs. Schoen visited classrooms for a read aloud. Reading independently, as a family, as a class, to a child helps expand vocabulary and writing skills, exposes students to other ideas and opinions, introduces students to other cultures and geography, and it is a relaxing and entertaining way to spend your time. Make every day a Read Across America day.

In February, Ithaca School District elementary students read and voted on their top choice for the Wisconsin Golden Archer book award. Hosted by the Wisconsin Educational Media and Technology Association (WEMTA), this book award is unique because only Wisconsin students are allowed to vote on the winner. "This was a great experience for young students to discuss books and their illustrations critically," said school librarian Emily Zorea. "Students gained experience discussing the theme, artwork, and their reaction to each title after they read it." This year's nominees included The Pigeon Has to Go to School by Mo Willems, The Bad Seed by Jory John, We Don't Eat Our Classmates by Ryan Higgins, King Baby by Kate Beaton, and The Thank You Book by Mo Willems. The title with the most votes at Ithaca was King Baby by Kate Beaton. The state winner will be announced after school districts submit their students' votes in April.

Ithaca elementary and middle school students recently experimented with robotic coding in the library! Using bee bot robots, students wrote code to make their robot navigate through a grid to arrive at designated squares. Students learned problem-solving, experimentation, and troubleshooting during the coding process. While students often visit the library to find information that is important to them in books or websites, coding lessons offer students an opportunity to create information by writing computer code their robots can read. Students and Mrs. Zorea are excited to continue experimenting with these robots, and learning to write computer code that is increasingly more complex!

A reminder that we are tree nut/peanut sensitive which means you make every attempt to NOT have any tree nuts/peanuts in food you bring into the school. This applies to all sporting activities, field trips, and bus riding. We cannot emphasize this enough. This is literally a life/death situation. Besides the obvious sources, check labels for wording like "may contain tree nuts" or "produced on shared equipment with tree nuts or peanuts". Foods with labels that reflect contact with or actually containing peanuts or tree nuts pose a serious life/death risk to those with these types of allergies.

The 2020 National FCCLA Contest was held this fall, and our Ithaca students stand out again! Each category has three levels broken on grade in school. Because of COVID this year's competition was held virtually with students having to record their presentation and send it into the judges. We had four students compete: Aubrey Weidenfeld and Talena Sprecher in Interviewing, Anna Dahlke in Toys that Teach and Maggie Gscwind in Consumer Math Challenge. Anna Dahlke earned 1st Place in the Nation Level 2 and Maggie Gswhind received 2nd place in the Nation Level 1. Congratulations to these young ladies for making the effort to compete in these challenging times and for their successes!

From Mrs. Prouty: Happy First Day of School!! I am a yellow! See our chart below, used today will all Middle and High school students. I am very happy to announce that the USDA has approved free lunch and breakfast for all students. We still need your applications for free and reduced lunch for every family, but all will be given free food. Soon, probably tomorrow, we will send out the information about how to order for your children 18 and under, on the virtual days. I had previously sent out a survey, which is now closed, for this week's food. If you filled that survey out, Annette Louis is sending food home with your children today (for Wed.) and has arranged for the 100% virtual students' food to be picked up. (Please note this is a very small number of families- only about 20, so you are probably not getting the extra food today or tomorrow. If this is a hardship for your family, please let me know by contacting me via email.) We have already had many glitches, errors, and mistakes. (And it is only 11:00!) Thanks to all of our families that let us know things did not go well; we are working on it. But, we are all HERE, in some way or another, trying our best. Tomorrow will be a learning day for everyone, but with grace and patience, we will all get better at this new way of learning.

The Ithaca Lions do so much for our students and community. Let's help them continue that tradition! The Ithaca Lions will be having a Brat sale at the WCCU in Richland Center on Friday, August 7th to raise money for our Stuff The Bus fundraiser for the Ithaca School. They will be serving brats, hot dogs, chips, soda, and water. There will also be bars and cookies for sale. Their 3rd annual Stuff the Bus will be held on Wednesday August 19th at the school in Ithaca from 12:00 to 6:30. Drop off supplies or cash donations then or to any Ithaca Lion. They hope to make this the best one yet, but can't do it without your support. Thanks for your past support. Also, The Ithaca Lions in conjunction with NexTrex will be collecting plastic. They will have to collect 500 pounds in six months and NexTrex will donate a park bench to the Ithaca Lions which is made of recycled plastics. The collection bin location has not been announced yet. If you would start saving now, it will make the collection more successful. If you have any questions you may contact any Lion or Dick Hauser at 605-585-4808.
