Solar Pizzas

Fifth graders from Mr. Johnson’s class recently visited Mrs. Jacobs’ first grade classroom to present a science lesson on how the sun is the principle source of energy. Fifth grade students created a lesson that would make this concept easily understood for first graders through the use of food. The goal of this lesson was to cook pizzas using the sun’s energy. Students were given a small pizza box that had a section of the top cut open with foil applied to attract the sun. The first graders each had the opportunity to create their own pizza and help finish preparing the box for “cooking”. After the fun of creating the pizzas and placing them outside, the fifth graders taught a lesson on how the sun’s energy was going to be used to cook the pizzas.

Students and staff are recognized for their Outstanding Achievements in Education!
On May 10 at the State Support Team Region 7’s “Outstanding Achievement Awards for Students and Educators” banquet, several Ontario students and teachers were recognized in front of their peers from across several area and county school districts. The banquet included a dinner catered by the Pioneer Career and Technology Center, a presentation of awards and culminated in the State Award Presentation. Students, their families and the teachers and administrators who support them enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating all the good things which are taking place in our area schools!

Ontario celebrates the achievements of the following students and teachers!

Isaiah Morales  Isaiah was selected as a recipient of the State Award for Outstanding Achievement in Education and will be recognized at a ceremony in Columbus in June. Isaiah is one of only 16 students selected from across the state to be recognized at this banquet!
Dominic Carmel, 1st grader from Stingel was nominated by his teacher Kristy Smith for his outstanding achievements in reading, writing and math!

Bethany Rachel, Kristy Smith and K D Hock were nominated by Mr. Carmel, Dominic’s father in his appreciation for their hard work and support of Dominic and his classmates.

Also in the news! Students and teachers across the district continue to engage in fun and exciting learning activities as the 2015-2016 school year winds down!
Students in Mrs. Thomas’, Mrs. Leach’s and Mrs. Calhoun’s 1st and 2nd grade multiage classroom, have been learning about different types of words used to make good detailed sentences. In this mini-lesson students are learning about Adverbs. Nouns, verbs, and adjectives have been previously taught. 
The students in Mrs. Smith’s class have been working hard on learning to count money. This is an important life skill that students will need to be successful in the future. Mrs. Smith’s students were welcomed by the Ontario community to practice these skills. They recently traveled to Cici’s Pizza and Dollar Tree to put their hard work into action. Students used money to purchase their own meals and some items of their choice in community settings. Mrs. Smith’s students used the next dollar up strategy in order to pay for these items. Also during this trip they worked on interacting with different members of the community. Our field trip was an excellent opportunity to practice many of the daily living skills that we have been learning in class!
The employability class took a field trip to Cinemark Movie Theater. The class was able to learn about all types of job opportunities at the theater. The students shared that they most enjoyed the behind the scenes tour, noting they liked seeing things most people don’t get to see. In the projection room they learned how the movies arrive digitally and decisions are made about the size of theater they are shown in. Students learned about the variety of tasks expected of an usher, many more than they thought! The class also learned that the more jobs they are willing to learn, the more work shifts they will be able to work. After lunch at Pizza Hut, the class returned to the theater to watch a movie.

Students in Mrs. Case’s Language Arts class spent time closing out the year learning about different aspects and types of poetry. Students worked together to help each other make poetry packets which included an introductory poem, an acrostic and a circle poem. Packets were then given as gifts to families for Mother’s Day.

2016 Ontario Basketball Playing League

The Ontario Basketball staff will be conducting the 22st annual Ontario Playing League for those players who are currently in the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades from any area schools. There will be two divisions: College Division (5th and 6th grades) and NBA Division (7th and 8th grades). All games will be played at the Ontario High School Gym.

The concept of the league is very simple. Players are divided as evenly as possible into teams with a maximum of nine players per team. A league schedule is played on the first three days and then a double elimination tournament is played on the final day. We try to limit the number of participants from the same school to two per team. Each team is guaranteed two games per day. Players are guaranteed equal playing time as a designated substitution rotation is followed. The Ontario Basketball staff along with our varsity players will officiate all of the games and enforce the substitution format.

Attached is the information sheet and registration forms. If you have any questions please contact Joe Balogh at 419-512-0164 (cell phone) or e-mail him at balogh.joe@ontarioschools.org.
