School and Community Connections!
Stingel Elementary

The 1st/2nd grade Multi-age room recently celebrated with a feast to culminate a unit on comparing Thanksgiving past and present. Students were asked to bring one grown up guest with them for a dinner at Stingel. Students, parents, and teachers had turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, deviled eggs, and a variety of desserts.
 OMS and OHS

Students at Ontario Middle School and High School combined their efforts to share a holiday feast with their families, teachers and other support staff. The project began with determining a budget and then menu planning. Once a menu was determined, students and staff created a shopping list and planned their shopping trip. The shopping trip provided each student with responsibilities at the store and then everyone enjoyed a meal out at Pizza Hut when done! In addition to this portion of the project, the students made invitations for their families and staff inviting them to attend and enjoy their holiday meal. Decorations were made and the room was set. The students then prepared the food over a two day period, ending it all to the delight of their friends, their families and the staff who helped along the way! This project combined academic, social and communication skills in a very practical and meaningful way. Well done OMS and OHS students and staff!
Our friends at Futures School also celebrated the holidays by preparing a Boom Stick Concert which included a rendition of the theme to the Pink Panther. There were many hours and hard work that went in to learning to play the unique instruments, read musical notes as well as the parts assigned to them. The students did a fantastic job and have much to be proud of! Families and Staff from area school districts enjoyed a feast after the performance. 
Mrs. Shaffer and Mrs. Hasten's classes enjoyed a Thanksgiving Feast! Thanksgiving Week activities included working on writing and fine motor skills to make pumpkins showing what we are thankful for and using our hand prints to make place mats for home. Mrs. Shaffer's students used a template on the SmartBoard to set each place setting. Although foods included some well-known favorites like stuffing and mashed potatoes, the students got a chance to try some new foods and make their own pumpkin pies in a bag. 
Some of our high school students took community engagement to a broader based level by examining how each individual has input into our country’s leadership and direction. Mrs. Kroll’s government class studied how the Electoral College works and what it takes for a candidate to win the presidential campaign. Activities included making predictions, historical outcomes from previous elections, 270toWin, and interactive maps.
