With gingerbread houses, sugar cone tree creations, ornaments, ugly sweaters, and more filling the halls here at IAS, we have truly been spreading the holiday spirit! But, we couldn't leave out our staff and students' incredible holiday door decorations...creativity blooms here!
The students in 4th grade made sugar cone Christmas trees. They had to read the recipe and follow the instructions. They also had to do a 10 assessment question based off the recipe. They sure had fun.
Ironwood staff participated in the traditional holiday Ugly Sweater Contest today. And the winner is... Ms. Powell Judges' say from the glittery blue eyeshadow to the sparkly silver shoes, Auburn as Mimi from the "Drew Cary Show" gets the award!
Mr. Foley stopped by his old stomping grounds and spent time with the fifth grade students! He provided a drawing lesson with tips to get started and discussed what your left brain vs right brain does while trying to draw. He encouraged students to practice, practice, practice!
Holiday fun with some of the Ironwood staff!
The counselors at Ironwood Area Schools are having a great time this week!

In response to a reported potential safety concern in our neighborhood this morning, Ironwood Area Schools went into a 'soft lockdown' status out of an abundance of caution around 9:00 this morning. There was no direct threat to our school or students at any time. Classes continued as usual, but students were kept inside. We were recently informed that the source of the concern had been addressed by Ironwood Public Safety and was deemed to not be a risk for our school. We lifted the 'soft lockdown' status at approximately 12:40 this afternoon. We are thankful for the ongoing support from Ironwood Public Safety! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the main office and speak with Mrs. Nigh or Mr. Powell.

Classrooms in grades K-2 take on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! After reading "Balloons over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy's Parade", students learned how much planning and hard work it takes to create such massive balloons and were inspired to make their own! Over the last couple of days, students paraded through the halls, showing off their creations. It was the perfect kick-off into our Thanksgiving break!
Congratulations to our October Students of the Month! These students did a great job modeling our RISE expectations: Clara Schoone (1st grade), MaKenna LaBeske (4th Grade), Bryce Nystrom (8th Grade), Nathan Jaunzems ( 10th Grade) Thanks for doing things the Wright Way!
