Gustav Klimt's Influence on 6th Grade Portraits
Sixth grade art students recently watched a movie about how Gustav Klimt's portrait of Adel Bloch-Bauer fell into the hands of the Germans during the war and then how difficult is was for the family to get their portrait back. The students learned about Klimt's style of using patterns and gold in his portraits.

Black and white photos were taken of each student and glued on paper. Imitating Klimt's style, students painted their self-portraits of faces and arms with a lot of detail and patterns everywhere else to complete the art piece.
Eighth Grade Post Victory Over Willard

The eighth grade boys basketball team opened up the ’15-’16 season Monday night with a victory over Willard by the score of 47-37. Both teams weren’t able to get much of a lead in the first half and the score was tied at the end of the first and second quarters. The Warriors came alive in the third quarter with Cameron Todd and Sam Sayre each scoring 5 points and outscored the Flashes 14-4 to take a 10 point lead that they would not relinquish.
Cameron Todd led the way with 17 points and Cade Leach also reached double figures with 10 points. Sam Sayre chipped in with 8 points and rounding  out the scoring for Ontario was Kyle Woods with 5 points, Xavier Hornyak-Swogger with 4 points, and Rain Scheibert with 3 points.

The Warrior’s next game is on December 3rd when they travel to Bellevue to take on the Redmen.
Warriors Start Season with Win
The 7th grade boys basketball team opened the year with a home victory over the Willard Flashes 38-34.  Although the Warriors led throughout, the game was tightly contested and hard fought on both ends of the court.   Caden Armstrong led Ontario with 15 points, while Griffin Shaver added 11.  Nolan Payne chipped in 5 and Jonathan Nagel added 4 points for the Blue and Gold. 

The Warriors will return to action after Thanksgiving break on Thursday, December 3 at Bellevue.
Great Job Readers!

OMS had a very successful book fair in November!  Students purchased over $2,000 in books!  We earned over $1,200 in free books for the library! This represents triple the sales and profit from two years ago. Next year, the fair will be even bigger with more selection as a result of our success.  It's wonderful to see the students so excited about reading!
