Feb. 1, 2024 Welcome to February!! We have had some exciting weather lately and relentless fog. Glad to see the fog move out for a while and some warmer temperatures. On Monday, we held our Cardinal Community Committee meeting. At the meeting we took the results from the surveys sent out to teachers and students to create a list of takeaways from our question of how we can support them as teachers, and what is needed to make the best school/education for the students? The list was then narrowed down to the top three takeaways that we can carry out before the end of the year: Student/parent/special guest night. Teaming up elem. students with a middle or high school student as buddies weekly. Career day for students. Inviting alumni and other career guests to come and speak at a career fair in the spring. *More details to come in the future about these events. But if you see something that you would like to help with or get involved with please contact Mrs. Johnson or a committee member. The committee also would like to help create professional partnerships between local businesses and teachers to support classrooms. Please let us know if you are interested in being a professional partner with a teacher. Thank you to those who volunteered to be a part of the Cardinal community committee. In other news from the week, on Wednesday, we celebrated national hot chocolate day school wide. Our 3rd and 4th graders did a great presentation about hot chocolate and its origins. The middle and high school students joined the elementary kiddos in the cafeteria for cocoa and marshmallows. The elementary students did a coloring contest as well about cups of cocoa. These are displayed by the high school gym and we are asking visitors at the game to vote for their favorite picture for the coloring contest. Thursday, in the elementary school, we celebrated our students of the quarter and also recognized students for great attendance of 90% or higher for the last quarter. The ms/hs have rescheduled their assembly for Wednesday, Feb. 7th @ 815 in the high school gym. Anyone is welcome to attend. The dates for outdoor school have been set May 13-16th.

Jan 25, 2024 It has been an eventful past 2 weeks !! Snow, wind, and freezing rain creating closures and delays. Thank you for your patience and understanding on closures and delays. Working with the bus barn, neighboring districts, weather forecasts and lots of driving the roads early in the morning, we have to make the decision to close or delay by 5 am. Sometimes, the weather unfortunately  sneaks in after making the call! But I will always err on the side of caution for the safety of our students and staff. Please make sure your phone number and email are up to date with the office if you are not receiving calls.  Don’t forget if you are interested in volunteering at school k-12, please check with the office, and we would be happy to send you a volunteer form. The volunteer form does require a background check to be done. It usually takes a few days to clear and then you are good to go. Let us know when turning in the application, what area/classroom/event you would like to volunteer for. In Ione, we welcome volunteers in the classroom, sporting events, drama club, helping with the yearbook, and many other opportunities. Let us know what you would like to help with!! Finally this week, I wanted to reach out to let you know if you and your family are ever struggling with groceries, clothing, getting to appointments, finding housing, applying for health care, we have a great CARE coordinator- Peggy,  who can help wherever needed. Please call the office, and we are happy to connect you with her.  We hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Tracey & Ryan    Upcoming events: Friday, January 26 HSBB v.

Nov 30, 2023 As we say goodbye to November and move to the holiday season, I want to thank everyone for their support of Ione school, staff and students. It's the time of the year for reflections and being thankful for those around you. I want to give a huge shout out to the staff this past month. We have faced some staffing shortages and everyone has pitched in and gone above and beyond for our students everyday! Thank you to everyone who attended our thanksgiving feast! We had a spectacular turnout and look forward to gathering again next year for another fabulous meal. At the elementary school we are busy preparing for our Christmas concert on Dec. 13 @ 6[m. The middle school/high school drama students are busty helping create the backdrop for our concert as well. Mark your calendars and come enjoy a great concert and visit from Santa after. This weekend, Friday and Saturday is the Basketball Bonanza here in Ione. Come cheer on your Cardinals! Games start at 3pm on Friday. Monday is our first home middle school game @ 4pm. Mr. Rudolf is looking for some volunteers to help with the scoreboard at the games. Let him know if you would like to support our middle school basketball teams. Tuesday, December 5th is our school board meeting in the cafeteria. It starts with a work session at 5pm and regular board meeting at 5:30 pm. Below is the 3 hour delay plan for inclement weather. If your student is in need of a winter coat let us know. Through generous donations, we have coat available. Tracey & Ryan Go Cards! 3 HOUR DELAY PLAN Nov 28, 2023 Dear Families, With winter quickly approaching we would like to share our inclement weather plan with you. Our goal is to provide the safest possible learning opportunities for our students and staff. Throughout the winter the district administration closely monitors weather and road conditions in our district and strives to inform families of changes in a timely manner. Typically, we try to notify family’s the night before of a late start or closure, but there are times when the weather changes overnight and requires an early morning change in school plans. This year Ione School District will continue using a 3-hour delay for bad weather. With this later start on inclement weather days it will allow us more time to evaluate the weather and road conditions before students and staff are traveling for school. Buses will run their normal routes, only 3 hours later. On late start days’ schools will still have lunch available to students. You can keep informed of school closures a variety of ways: *School Messenger *District website *District Facebook page *local news and radio stations Queridas familias: Con el invierno acercándose rápidamente, nos gustaría compartir nuestro plan de inclemencias del tiempo con usted. Nuestro objetivo es proporcionar las oportunidades de aprendizaje más seguras posibles para nuestros estudiantes y personal. A lo largo del invierno, la administración del distrito monitorea de cerca las condiciones climáticas y de las carreteras en nuestro distrito y se esfuerza por informar a las familias de los cambios de manera oportuna. Por lo general, tratamos de notificar a la familia la noche anterior sobre un inicio tardío o un cierre, pero hay momentos en que el clima cambia de la noche a la mañana y requiere un cambio temprano en la mañana en los planes escolares. Este año, el Distrito Escolar del Condado de Ione usara un retraso de 3 horas por mal clima. Con este inicio tardío en los días de mal clima, nos dará más tiempo para evaluar el clima y las condiciones de la carretera antes de que los estudiantes y el personal viajen a la escuela. Los autobuses realizarán sus rutas normales, solo 3 horas después. Los días de inicio tardío, las escuelas seguirán teniendo desayuno y almuerzo disponibles para los estudiantes. Puede mantenerse informado sobre el cierre de escuelas de varias maneras: *Mensajero de la escuela *Sitios web del distrito y de la escuela *Páginas de Facebook del distrito y de la escuela *Noticias locales y estaciones de radio

November 16th, 2023 “When you give joy to other people, you get more joy in return” A great quote to remind us of being kind to others. Monday, we celebrated kindness day and talked about how to be kind to others and ourselves. Mr. Rudolf and I had the privilege of reading to the k-6th grade students about kindness. This week we started basketball practice. We are still looking for a middle school boys basketball coach. If interested, please let Mr. Rudolf or myself know. We finished off the week giving thanks with friends and family at Ione school with a thanksgiving feast. Thank you to Madi Alldritt for planning and cooking this great feast. Thank you to all the staff and students who have pitched in to help serve, set up for our meal, and most of all to our parents and special guests who came to eat with our students. We would like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels if traveling for the holiday. There is no school next week Nov. 20-24.

This week we celebrated our groundbreaking ceremony with our guest of honors who did the first shovel turn- Mrs. Orem’s kindergarten class. They did a fantastic job representing Ione school.

There will be a community service opportunity on campus Saturday November 11th from 12-4pm in the Cafeteria. We have received a grant to remodel the stage area into a Student Resource Center. We need students to assist with painting, assembling furniture, design, and organization.
