Coffee Anyone?
Adios, in conjunction with Miss Vannest's classes, hosted a coffee house before school on Friday, November 21st.  Hot chocolate, cappuccino, and muffins were sold.   Proceeds go towards contest prizes, Secret Santa, and educational materials.  
Art Updates
On November 7, Lana Garberich attended the Ohio Art Education Association Conference in Columbus, Ohio. Artist Kerry James Marshall was the key note speaker.  Several seminars were offered regarding new art medias and materials available. Mrs. Garberich had the opportunity to tour the OSU Wexner building with exhibits by Picasso, Degas, and Dunham. 

The 6th graders finished up their 12 week art class with their latex plaster Henna hand pattern sculptures.   For the Henna project, after students studied the elements and principles of Henna and Zentagle designs, they created ten different designs of their own along with two different radial designs.  Once their preliminary drawing was complete, students filled a black or colored latex glove with plaster, let it dry, and decorated it with metallic markers.
Ontario's Teacher Rep for Academic Content in the Ohio Senate
Congratulations to eighth grade social studies teacher Michael Tagg for being appointed as Teacher Representative to the Social Studies Academic Content Standards Review Committee in the Ohio Senate this week.  After submitting a letter of interest earlier this year, Mr. Tagg received a call from Ohio Senate President Keith Faber stating that he will be appointing Mr. Tagg.  This committee is one of four committees created in H.B. 487.  The review panels were created to ensure that Ohio's academic expectations will successfully prepare K-12 students for life after high school.  Congratulations Mr. Tagg!
Lab Procedures
Eighth graders have been examining the life cycle and prediction of the next likely stage of a star by using technical vocabulary and using scientific inquiry as well as safe lab procedures. During the Flame Test, Lab students test various compounds and write down their spectral observations to answer:  “How can a star’s spectrum be used to determine what elements are present in the star?” Once all observations are logged then the students identify an unknown compound based on what they have previously determined to be true. They finish their lab by following an inference rubric in order to construct their answer to the aforementioned question.
