What's New at Ontario Schools?
Prom, Legal Marijuana and Your Child
As teens take to the road for their memory-building Prom dances, let’s make sure the memories are great life-long ones. Impaired driving due to drugs or alcohol has been on the rise, especially with the recent push for legalizing marijuana. Studies show that more teens experiment with marijuana at an earlier age thinking that if it is legal for adults in some states, it must not be that bad. One in 6 kids become addicted after smoking one joint. Most heroin users admit that marijuana was an early problem in their prior drug use history. The Federal DEA still lists marijuana as a Schedule 1 substance, placing higher than cocaine, meth or morphine on the list of illegal substances.

Help prevent your teenage from becoming a victim to bad memories, talk with them about drugs and alcohol. Ohio Governor John Kasich and his wife have started a program that helps parents begin the conversation with their child. Not only does drug use among children sharply decrease if parents have open communication about the dangers of drug abuse, but decision-making skills also increase as a result of mentoring and positive peer influence.

Building News:   Mrs. Andress’ class is reading Lord of the Flies in English 10 Inclusion. The students are experiencing the novel through class survival challenges among their "tribes".  Each tribe has developed their own unique tribal flag which states their tribal motto. The tribes compete for immunity points through physical competitions which ultimately leads to solving quiz puzzles at the end of each challenge. Students are learning novel content in a fun, competitive, and kinesthetic way.  

Mrs. Hasten's room at Stingel loves using shaving cream to practice letters and numbers!! We use all different types of sensory integrated lessons throughout our school day to enrich the Common Core Standards. The students love exploring different textures and manipulatives to enhance their learning!  

Spring Clean Up a Success
On April 16th several Ontario High School students participated in Spring Clean Up with the city of Ontario. Representatives from Key Club, FCCLA, No Use, and Student Council picked up trash along the streets of Ontario. Mayor Hutchinson and Safety Service Director Jeff Wilson were very appreciative of their efforts. Our students take pride in our community and were more than willing to help keep it clean. Thank you to all our students who spent the afternoon picking up trash. Also, thank you to Miss Vannest, Mrs. Cain, and Janet VanCura for chaperoning the event!
