Local Wetlands Research

The Science Club is researching the wetlands behind the high school.  Students are learning how to take physical, chemical and biological samples of the wetland.  Students have discovered the wetland is a salamander breeding ground, contains large populations of Green Frogs and tadpoles and is home to many aquatic invertebrates.  Chemical studies show the wetland is high in dissolved oxygen from the abundant algae populations present.  We are lucky to have such a high quality habitat here on the Ontario property.

Students in Mr. Coley's American Government class work on an assignment where they create political ads convincing New Yorkers to support or oppose the new Constitution.  Students need to express the position of their assigned Federalist/Anti-federalist paper in a 30-second ad, using a web-based design app.
English 12 students created a visual theme paper for the novel A Man Called Ove and a poem of choice. Once finished, they took a photo and created interactive links on the image to explain their theme and symbolic references. 

Suture Practice

Anatomy and physiology students are studying the integumentary system in class.  As part of their dissections, students have the chance to try their hand at suturing - a skill necessary for the medical professions.  Here a student sutures the skin back together on a dissection specimen.

Making Buckeyes

Mrs. Kroll’s American History Class started an extension unit, Treats of Our Favorite States!  Students started with our own GREAT state of Ohio by making delicious candy Buckeyes.  Students used their Chromebooks to watch a video demonstrating how to make this perfect treat.
