Attention Ironwood Families! Great opportunity to make a difference: Do you have time to talk to a teenager about what American families are really like and what our freedom means? The patience to have conversations at dinner and in the car to help them improve their English? If so, you might be a great family for a lucky teenager from Spain, Italy, Brazil, Germany, France, South Korea, Norway or another country! If you've ever considered a student but been nervous about the commitment, it is possible to WELCOME a student for as little as 6 weeks. This allows kids to get their visa, be enrolled in a school, and book their flight. They will never forget the family that helped make their dream come true. They have their own insurance and money for necessities. Families provide meals at home and a supportive atmosphere. To learn about some of the available kids, you can click these links to see brief descriptions of them: Available Male Students 2024: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZYX8ChRy49C9cfl_N2QaTiM3gLHIrM7o3qgZ6pV01ww/edit?usp=sharing Available Female Students 2024: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-y5FwBmlZYf1AjEU_h_EkVsKDE9JTWckSq2d-ehz9JU/edit?usp=sharing For more information, call or text Lauren Lachen, Senior District Representative with International Cultural Exchange Services at 906-231-4852 or email llachen@icesusa.org.

On Tuesday, June 4th the 5th grade went on a field trip to explore the Porcupine Mountains. Students hiked to Lake of the Clouds, a portion of the Government Peak Trail, and learned about archery. Throughout the hikes, students participated in investigations. Thank you to the four knowledgeable rangers that led our hikes and taught our students archery skills! Also, a big thank you to the "Friends of the Porkies!"

In the final days of school, students were engaged in many activities. Due to inclement weather, our 4th grade students were unable to go to their planned field trip (Norrie Park for a Water Ecology exploration), so we took over the MakerSpace for five different science stations: fossils, plants, volcanoes, earthquakes and bird beaks. An engaging and informative learning experience for all!

Students in Mrs. Stehlik's Metal Fabrication class are finishing up their special projects. Delwyn Westeen and Mason Oesau are second year students, they each completed a small wood stove, perfect for ice shacks. Sophia Perin was an Italian exchange student this year, she fabricated these two carts which will be used for the Ironwood Area Schools Makerspace. Simeon Ruotsala, Logan Recla and Gage Mullikin, who are in Advanced Woodworking worked together to build the wooden table tops for Sophia's carts as well as two new tables for the Makerspace, Tristin Laabs fabricated the metal tables in Mrs. Stehlik's Metal Fabrication class. Storm Parish, Ethan Gallo, Simeon Ruotsala and Eli Ruotsala worked together to construct two Ironwood Area Schools Sauna Stoves. Tristin Laabs, who is an advanced welding students and a 'veteran stove maker' helped Mrs. Stehlik oversee the stoves completion. The kids worked very well together. Jada Godfrey built a bean bag toss for the PTO this year, Parker Osterman designed the graphics for the game. The game was used for the first time for the Elementary Students Field Day last Friday. Jada did a terrific job. Excellent work, students!

Today we are going all the way back to 1929 & 1924. Did you know that our school once had a gymnastics team? They performed for the halftime show of basketball games, at the Ironwood theater, assemblies at other local schools, and the patients at Gogebic County hospital. The biggest event of the school year was the annual circus with over 4000 people attending, with a parade downtown the afternoon before the first performance! (in April) Also, as we close out this school year, we honor and thank all the work of the Hematite yearbook staff throughout the years. They capture the people and events of our school each year for generations to come. The foreword of the 1924 yearbook reads, “If, when Father Time shall have dimmed these tender recollections, and when a cloud of forgetfulness shall have shadowed by-gone days, we may wander together down the rosy paths of memory with this treasure-house as a guide; then we shall have found our reward in the fulfillment of our mission and the accomplishment of our task.” We hope to see you during Festival Ironwood in July for our Centennial Celebration events!
