Idaho Youth ChalleNGe Academy (IDYCA) Update

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! To make this day special for our Cadets, we are asking our supporters to send one (1) Valentine’s card, with a handwritten note of encouragement inside, to t IDYCA, 117 Timberline Drive, Pierce, ID 83546. Please plan their arrival by Friday, Feb. 12.

If you would like to help in this effort, please purchase or make one (1) standard-size greeting card. These can be purchased at the Dollar Store for only 50¢ each. We do not want any small, boxed Valentine’s cards or any giant cards. (NOTE: Giant cards received at the Academy, for any occasion, have to be thrown away after reading, because there is no place to store them.) Also, just an FYI, square-shaped cards cost more 17¢ more to mail than rectangular cards, so please verify postage before sending, to ensure that your card arrives on time.

In your greeting card, please hand-write a heartfelt note of encouragement that can be given to any Cadet. You may include your name and mailing address in the card, if you are willing to have this young person correspond with you in the future.

Our goal is to have 126 different Valentine’s greetings, so each Cadet receives one. Please ask friends and family to help. (If we receive double or triple the amount needed, then each Cadet gets multiple cards.)

Finally, NO CANDY, TREATS, STICKERS, ETC! The Cadets get plenty of sweets from various staff members, so please send ONLY greeting cards. Any item sent for Valentine’s Day, that is not listed on the original packing list, is still considered contraband and staff will have to throw it away.

**To clarify, for those who have youth currently at the Academy ... you can ALWAYS send any cards and letters to your own youth, and you should already be doing so. However, this Valentines project is separate from your own youth. - Ms. Carmen

This week, starting Jan.27, Wednesday, the Timberline Student Art Show will be opening online via Facebook, because of Covid-19. There will be no Grand Opening at Studio 205, rather, Ethan Jared will be helping us put the 13th annual show “To Life”, online.

This year there are 15 featured artists presenting some great new art to be debuted in a splendid fashion. The artists displaying their works are; Cody Bird, Kyd Bonner, Abby Brown, Sam Brown, Allison Davidson, Kaylie Fallwell, Cheyenne Hanson, Carlie Jared, Ethan Jared, Jude Nelson, Micah Nelson, Carson Sellers, Allison Sparrow, Kyler Sparrow and Emilee Widener. All their efforts are greatly appreciated and extend beyond their daily school and sports schedule! Thank you all!

Also, this year instead of t-shirts, or beanies, for the student artists we have, donated by a woodworker from Pierce, a fantastic gumball machine. All the artist’s names were placed in a container and one name was drawn. The winner was Ethan Jared. Congratulations Ethan, and congratulations to all the artists for their amazing works of art.

Pierce Community Center

We are excited to announce our Calendar is starting to fill, which is very exciting for us and our community!

We are still booking rentals of the Community Center! The rooms and building will be thoroughly cleaned before your arrival to assure your safety against cold, flu, or other seasonal viruses. We are working towards our Community Center being more “full time” for our community and in order to do that, we are working hard at building its revenue in the means of more rentals and working on bringing more opportunities to our center.

We currently have Progressive Jiu-Jitsu on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6-7 p.m. Our game room offers six computer stations, one of them being handicapped accessible, for the kids and public to use for homework, games, social media access, etc. The room also includes a flat screen tv with Wii, PlayStation, and DVD/VCR options for after school fun. There is a table besides the computer stations that allows a place for students to come use the Wi-Fi for homework and research for school projects. If you have not been to the center for a while, please stop by during business hours and they would love to show you around and talk about future plans and goals they hope to see take place.

With the continuing changes being made by the Governor and the Health District, we will also be looking into those changes and how they affect the Community Center and our plans to bring back events such as movie nights, skate nights, and other events we hope to bring to our community.

Any events, news, or information you would like to share in the Clearwater Tribune under the Pierce/Weippe news, please be sure to contact Brandy Denison by social media or email at mrsfs24@gmail.com prior to the deadline on Monday to make the following Wednesday paper.
