Today marks the 34th anniversary of the Challenger Shuttle explosion that took the lives of seven crew members including teacher Christa McAuliffe. Pardon me for a personal reflection. As a 4th grader and like so many students across the nation, we had been prepped by our teachers for this moment. We studied the aeronautics program, reviewed the lessons Mrs. McAuliffe would be conducting from space, talked about the training she endured to become a civilian and female astronaut! Her selection made it seem that anyone of us young people could choose and do anything. As other classes joined us in our classroom, we huddled close to the roll-cart TV. We joined Mission Control in the countdown... BLAST OFF! The cheers were loud and excited! And then 73 seconds later it all changed. Our youth today have become desensitized now to horrendous video, but we had never seen something like that. It was very awful to watch and experience as a young person. Now, I can admire the way our teachers gathered their emotions and talked to us, reassured us, and were honest with us. It is often said that heroes walk among us. How very true. Christa McAuliffe has become an example of that for my generation. She provided us with a public example of the lengths that educators of any type go through to inspire learning and find connections to ALL of their students. Figuratively and at times literally, educators give their lives to young people. In honor of Christa McAuliffe, remember the dedication of one or more of your "teachers". And teachers come in many forms! If you have the opportunity to do so, thank them. Thank you, Mrs. McAuliffe. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sdut-challenger-disaster-mcauliffes-students-have-gone-2016jan27-story.html

The careers class applied the life skills and job skills they have been learning about and practicing during the Mock Interviews yesterday. Sophomores prepared a cover letter, resume and references for an entry level job they would like to apply for. Community business people donated their time and talent to interview the students and give them feedback on their interview as well as their cover letter and resumes. Although the students were nervous, they all agreed that the interview wasn't as bad as they thought it would be. The careers class teaches interviewing skills to every high school student as well as help them set goals for being career and college ready. A big thanks to the following for donating their time to invest in the future of our students: Julie Doudna, Dana Francois, DeAnna Jelinek, Pam Kaufmann, Chuck Keller, Monica Kershner, Laura Melby, Brian Moore, Marty Richards, Dave Schoen, and Ashley Touissant.

As you probably know, many residents at PV have little money to spend and/or few relatives to assist them with purchasing those little things that make everyday living a little nicer. This is the 15th year that Ithaca School District has collected items for Pine Valley Community Village. Each year, your generous gifts benefit people in our own area. Often these people are past neighbors, old family friends, a relative, or someone we may know who has met with an unfortunate event/ illness that require their life to be supported in an atmosphere where constant and safe care is provided. As members of the Ithaca School Family, we feel it is important for children to learn to reach out to and aid others who are different or less fortunate than we are. We not only strive to educate your child to the best of our abilities, but we also endeavor to do our part, in developing them into the best human beings possible. We feel the “wish list” project is well worth undertaking yearly and that it demonstrates true kindness and generosity. You may send gifts at anytime. We will keep them here at school until we make our Christmas visit to Pine Valley the week of December 16th. At this time, we extend to you, a sincere and heartfelt thank you for any contributions that can be made on your family’s behalf. Again, thank you! The Ithaca School Staff

Dear Parents/Guardians, In light of recent events at various high schools in Wisconsin where law enforcement personnel were called upon to intervene in situations for the safety and well-being of students and staff, we are reminding all families that the Ithaca School District and Richland County Sheriff’s Department have a strong partnership in place. We are grateful for the in-school support we receive from the officers that work closely with our schools and for the open lines of communication that exist between us and both the sheriffs’ and police departments. Today, December 5, 2019, Ithaca had an unplanned lockdown for the entire district. There was an altercation with a student at lunch, and we needed to clear all the students from the halls so that the officers could do their work. As soon as we felt the students were safe, we released the lockdown to resume normal activities. I am proud to state our county sheriff’s department not only assisted but came back to make sure we were all OK. In the Ithaca School District’s mission, it states that we will “ensure the highest levels of learning in a positive, safe, community-rich environment.” Our administrators work with city and county authorities on emergency safety training and simulations, and all of our employees annually review safety procedures and practice drills. Unfortunately, with the recent news from other Wisconsin districts, we are reminded that we must continually remain vigilant. The Ithaca School District maintains a variety of active security measures at all times, including locked exterior doors, mandatory check-in procedures at school entrances, video surveillance, and the shot detector alarm. In recent years, we have invested grant funds to enhance security at school building entrances, numbering doors and windows, installing new security cameras, installing equipment to improve communication within our buildings, and more. A comprehensive emergency response plan guides our response to emergency situations at the district and school levels. Staff are trained to implement emergency procedures and participate in practice drills throughout the year. Students receive training as well, including participation fire drills, severe weather drills, and lockdown drills during the year. The Richland County Sheriff, Richland Emergency management, and Richland Police Department personnel regularly participate in the review of our security and emergency procedures. Additionally, there is a county safety team consisting of members of all area schools, EMT, fire, and emergency management. We know in an emergency, we will have the assistance of the entire county. Of course, we cannot do the work of keeping everyone safe alone. We need students, parents, and community support. We encourage parents to speak with their students to emphasize the role that they have in maintaining safe schools by following school safety guidelines (e.g. not providing building access to strangers, reporting strangers on campus, reporting threats to school safety made by students or community members, etc.), and communicating any personal safety concerns to school administrators or other trusted adults. Ithaca Schools uses the Safe Schools Alert as an Online Tip Reporting System. This is linked in our Ithaca App, on the webpage, and there are posted links in the building. We recognize that recent events have raised concerns and we want to assure you that we have taken steps and continue to implement measures to ensure the safety of students and staff. Please contact your school principal or your child's school counselor if you have any questions or would like additional information. Sincerely, Julie R. Prouty Ithaca School District Superintendent

If you remember Mrs. Prouty testified at the Capital last spring in support of passing a bill to provide an alternative for Special Education educators to receive proper credentials. That bill was passed recently by Gov. Evers. Wisconsin Act 44 creates an alternative to the requirement that an applicant for an initial special education teaching license must pass the Foundations of Reading Test (FORT). Under the bill, a person may instead complete a course that satisfies specific requirements.

Winter arrived unexpectedly and has a tight grip on our weather. As our students go out to enjoy recess or time outside, please be mindful of what gear your children are bringing (or not bringing) to school. As Mrs. Schoen has sent home, we encourage students to make their own choices about the gear they wear outside. Our staff reviews their choices and only intervenes if the weather is dangerous for what they may be missing. Please know that our staff is very sensitive to the needs of our students, and we discuss often that we can be approached at any time when they need things. This includes winter gear. Our supportive community and staff have resources to help students if they need items like winter jackets, snow pants, boots, or any other supplies. We will be discreet in supplying them, but we need to know. Feel free to reach out to your student’s teacher, Mrs. Schoen, Mrs. Pluemer or any other staff member to communicate those needs.

It's normal to feel frustrated when something is hard, but how we react to that frustration helps determine our success. This is why we challenge students - engaging in something that is hard creates growth and habits of perseverance.

Getting answers right is OK, being stuck and finding them hard is fantastic." https://www.edsurge.com/news/2019-10-28-why-struggle-is-essential-for-the-brain-and-our-lives?utm_source=Youcubed+Updates&utm_campaign=11eb7ec351-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_11_03_06_35&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_230e567c40-11eb7ec351-164431385

Today Middle and High School students attended the Save a Life Tour at our school. They watched a moving interview of a teenager who was driving a car with her friend and brother when another driver hit their car. Her brother was killed by that distracted driver. Our speaker discussed the opportunity to be given a second chance - but that opportunity doesn't always happen for everyone. Choices behind the wheel don't always just impact ourselves. The video was emotional and very powerful. Our HS/MS students and staff were given the chance to drive simulators while texting and "impaired." Be prepared for your students to comment on some of your driving habits, and encourage conversations about safe driving behaviors. Our students and children are our most valuable possessions. https://www.wsaw.com/video?vid=493203871

The Wisconsin Association of School Boards has designated Oct. 6-12 as Wisconsin School Board Week - a time to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our communities. Ithaca is joining all public school districts across the state to celebrate Wisconsin School Board Week to honor local board members for their commitment to the Ithaca community and its children.It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these men and women devote countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child learn at a higher level. They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect. The key work of school boards is to raise student achievement by: • Creating a vision for what the community wants the school district to be and for making student achievement the top priority; • Establishing standards for what students will be expected to learn and be able to do; • Ensuring progress is measured to be sure the district’s goals are achieved and students are learning at expected levels; • Being accountable for their decisions and actions by continually tracking and reporting results; • Creating a safe, orderly climate where students can learn and teachers can teach; • Forming partnerships with others in the community to solve common problems; and • Focusing attention on the need for continuous improvement by questioning, refining and revising issues related to student achievement. School board members give the Ithaca community a voice in education decision making. Even though we make a special effort to show our appreciation in October, their contribution is a year-round commitment.” The seven members serving our district are as follows: Susan Bloczynski, Ron Brisbois, Kelly Feryance, Steve Louis, Randy Manning, Linda Peterson, and Summer Roh. Thank you is not enough, but if you see them, please thank them for their commitment and work.

Dear Parents and Guardians: We strive at Ithaca to keep your children safe while they are in our care. But, we need your help. Upon investigating an incident during last Friday's game, we noticed that many students are unsupervised, running around in dark areas, in the new volleyball court, behind the school, near the softball field, and in the high school parking lot. We ask that after regular school hours, your children stay with you at evening events. Mrs. Schoen has advised the 3-8 grade students that it is expected that they stay within the fencing of the football field for their safety. Ithaca hires crowd control/supervision, but these people are not able to be everywhere, and so we need your help. Students should remain in the gym during inside games and in the fenced and lighted areas for outside activities. Your assistance is greatly appreciated to keep all our children secure. Sincerely, Ithaca Administration.

We take this time to remember our “Blue Star” and “Gold Star” Military Families and thank them for their sacrifice and generosity. We want them to know that they are a part of our community. "Blue Star" has come into use in the United States as a reference to having a family member in active military service, while the term "Gold Star" has come to refer to the loss of a family member in military service.

This week is National Suicide Prevention Week. Research has found that 46% of people who die by suicide had a known mental health condition. Several other things may put a person at risk of suicide, including: - A family history of suicide. - Substance abuse. Drugs can create mental highs and lows that worsen suicidal thoughts. - Intoxication. More than 1 in 3 people who die from suicide are under the influence of alcohol at the time of death. - Access to firearms. - A serious or chronic medical illness. - Gender. Although more women than men attempt suicide, men are nearly 4x more likely to die by suicide. - A history of trauma or abuse. - Prolonged stress. - ​A recent tragedy or loss​. ​Making connections with people can often prevent a person from resorting to suicide. As a school that fosters kindness, our students know the skills that can make those connections. Always choose kindness to help prevent suicide.

Debunking Free and Reduced Meals Myths Families received applications for the Free and Reduced Meal Program. We urge you to complete and return the form! You way ask, “Why?” Read on to find out why that application is so valuable! 1) I don’t qualify, so I shouldn’t apply. ~What the state deems as “qualifies” may be different than your point of view. It doesn’t harm anything or anyone to fill out the form. 2) I don’t want free or reduced meals for my children, so I shouldn’t apply. ~Qualifying for free or reduced meals does NOT mean your family needs to accept them. BUT! Having families that do qualify increases funding that our school receives for other programs. That funding can help us provide more learning opportunities for our students and more resources for our staff! If you qualify, even if you don’t participate in the program, our district still may receive the added funding. 3) I don’t want other students or adults to know we participate in the free or reduced meals program. ~Ithaca takes this very seriously. No one outside of our food service leadership and administration knows this information. Treating students or families differently because they receive free or reduced meals will not be tolerated in the Ithaca School District. Please, PLEASE complete and return the form by August 27th. Doing so can help our students, families, and staff in so many ways. If you need a form, please contact the district office, reach out via Facebook in a private message, or view the DPI page devoted to free and reduced meals to find copies of the forms. The link is found under "News" on our app and website.

We are a Wisconsin Title 1 School of Recognition! State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor announced 114 Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition awards for 2019, an honor that recognizes success in educating students from families who are economically disadvantaged. "Students living in poverty often find themselves standing outside the dreams we hold for our youth," Stanford Taylor said. "To bring students back into the dream requires skill, knowledge, and commitment. Thank you, educators, support staff, families, partners – everyone who helped schools earn these awards. You are building a better future for your students and our state." The award-winning schools are among those receiving federal Title I funding to provide services to high numbers or high percentages of economically disadvantaged children. Data used to determine the awards is from the previous school year.

Melanie Lendosky is an area mom whose daughter found a great outlet that builds confidence and enhances strengths. Read her story, and watch their group tomorrow! My daughter started playing wheelchair basketball this last fall/winter. She was born with Spina Bifida. The program has made such a difference in her self-confidence and also physically. Because of this, I am trying to get the word out to other families with disabled children and also to special ed directors/teachers etc. I hope it is ok that I went to the contacts that I have made at school districts because you know kids or at least special ed directors/teachers or maybe even families affected. The team she is playing for is the Mad City Badgers. They put on demonstration by scrimmaging the varsity teams of school districts. As part of the demonstration, the coach also includes disability awareness. We are putting on a demonstration this Saturday from 4-8 pm at Hillsboro high school.

Middle school track parents, With the extra time added to the end of school we have determined that having practice from 3:40 – 5:00 does not allow us enough time to condition nor properly coach the athletes in their specific event(s). Starting Monday, April 15th, we are asking to extend practice an additional half hour. We will be done such that you may pick up your athlete at 5:30. Naturally, if this creates a conflict we will adjust for the individual family’s situation. If you have any questions you may either call me at 608-585-2512 or email me at tripdav@ithaca.k12.wi.us.

Also, make sure your child has proper clothing for the trip. If you are in need of something, let your child's teacher know before Friday so arrangements can be made if possible.

Starting Monday, February 25, 2019, middle school and high school students will be expected to be in class at 7:55 and will be released at 3:25. Elementary students will be in the Commons for a 3:20 pick up time. The morning bus routes will not change. The afternoon routes will be approximately 15 minutes later than they had been. Doing this will add approximately 25 hours to our school year, and make up for all missed time so far. Thank you for understanding. We make every effort to keep our kids and staff safe; closing school is not something we can plan. Sincerely, Julie R. Prouty Kathleen Schoen Chris Lechnir

Reminder: “Written Off” will be shown on Lone Rock on February 17th and in Richland Center on February 25th. In 2016, more lives were lost to drug addiction than were lost in the Vietnam War. This film chronicles the life of Matthew Edwards, whose addiction to opioids began at age 15, after being prescribed pain medicine for a minor surgery. His grippingly honest writing reveals the secrets he tried so hard to conceal throughout a decade long struggle to escape addiction. Details for the viewings may be found on our website or on our app under News.
