Energy Conservation

Sixth grade students were treated to a energy conservation presentation sponsored by First Energy, Monday, February 24th. A theater group performed a variety of skits as they discussed energy in their lives and in particular, conservation. Each student received an energy conservation kit which included energy-saving bulbs, power strips, LED's, and night lights.
Lessons regarding energy were previously taught in their science class prior to the assembly making the content very easy to follow. It was a super fun assembly. 
Mrs. Ritchey’s 7th grade language arts class made vocabulary roller coasters to learn the jargon of coasters in preparation for their persuasive writing project.
Ontario Middle School hosted the 2020 NCOESC Region 3 Spelling Bee on Thursday, February 20, 2020. Chelley Kemper, WMFD-TV/Mix 106.1 Radio, served as the reader for the contest with Jeff Hohman, JDH Construction; Lisa Davoli, Fostoria City Schools; and Kelly Hohman, North Central Ohio ESC serving as judges. Twenty-eight students from Buckeye Central, Colonel Crawford, Ontario, Shelby, and Wynford participated in this event to determine the district representative to the regional competition. Colonel Crawford Sixth Grader Ian Gonzales was crowned the champion after several rounds of spelling. Ontario students who participated were Ryan Racer, Abby Bechstein, Natalie Kline, Paige Dunkle, and Jocelyn LeHew.

These 14 students made the best guesses in determining how many pieces of candy were in the jars. Each winner got to take the jar of candy home.  That should satisfy a sweet tooth.
Stall Your Teacher Day raised a total of $1110.81 with the proceeds to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Ontario Middle School students and staff did a terrific job in donating their pennies, nickels, dimes, etc. to such a worthwhile cause.
