Our Bobcats participated in many fun and engaging activities. Thirty-two students form Ignacio Middle School and High School attended the San Juan Basin Regional Science Fair at Fort Lewis College. I’d like to give a shout-out to students Evan Perkins and Max Montoya, who were awarded third place for their A.I.-based voice recognition project.  

On Feb 20, our Middle School Students participated in History Day, a national competition that provides students in grades 6-12 with an exciting way to learn about historical issues, ideas, people, and events. Students presented on a variety of topics of historical significance, such as the Great Chicago Fire, the History of Basketball, and even the History of Bread! It was fun to hear students speak in-depth about topics of personal interest. We have 15 students who will be participating in the Regional History Day, which is on March 15 at Fort Lewis College. The exhibits are open for parents and the public to view from 12:15 – 1 p.m. on that day.  

On Feb 27, our students celebrated the art of film with the Durango Independent Film Festival’s screening of REEL Learning School Program. Students watched educational and creative short films which were curated to spark rich discussion and to inspire.  

March brings a variety of programming and activities as well! The elementary school will showcase their young authors on Writer’s Night on March 13 at 5:30 p.m. Come see our aspiring musicians in kindergarten and fifth grade during a special musical event on March 14 from 2 – 3 p.m. This musical celebration will take place in the High School Auditorium.  

State testing will be from April 8 to April 26. It is so important that students show up to school every day so we can ensure that they are feeling confident and prepared. State test results are an important measure for districts in determining areas of strength and areas for growth.  

Don’t forget to follow Ignacio School District on Facebook and to check the district’s website periodically to stay tuned to upcoming events. We look forward to seeing you there!
