Cross Country Wraps Up Season

The OMS Cross Country teams competed at the MOAC Conference Championships, Saturday, October 12 and had  a successful meet. The boys placed fourth overall with the girls taking third. Twenty-three of the 28 athletes ended their season with their fastest times of the year. Great job Warriors!
 
Athletes are reminded to turn in their cross country uniforms by Friday, October 18th.

Analyzing Song Lyrics

In 8th grade language arts, students chose songs and analyzed the lyrics.  They chose a theme that they thought the lyrics represented and then put together posters which they presented to the class.  Each poster displayed lyrics from the songs that supported the theme, along with examples of figurative language.  Through this activity, students were able to elaborate on each piece of evidence that supported their theme and recognized how often song writers use figurative language to express their ideas.  All of the eighth graders did a fabulous job on their posters and presentations!

Edgar Allan Poe Study

Seventh grade literature students concluded an author study on Edgar Allan Poe as they prepare to read one of his famous works, "The Tell-Tale Heart." Students watched a video biography of the author and created timelines on his tragic life. They concluded their study by creating a poster with pieces of Poe's dramatic life story added to the image of the famous author.

Students Perform in Local Theater Production

 
Two Ontario high school students and two Ontario middle school students were in the Mansfield Playhouse’s production of Disney’s The Lion King. There is still time to see this wonderful production! Congratulations to these students on a job well done.

Pesky Bullies Get the Word

Sixth grade language arts students pose with a few of the writing bullies that are being held captive in Mrs. Murray's classroom.  The students wrote letters to their most bothersome bullies, telling the pesky bullies to leave them alone so they can be more confident in their writing skills.
