Sixth Grade Students Present Travel Fair
The 6th graders recently conducted a  project that included the creation of a brochure, travel itinerary, and poster about a country in the eastern hemisphere that they had chosen to research. At a travel fair, they shared their products with other OMS students and staff, trying to convince their customers to buy a trip to their country!
FCCLA Career Day
Ontario Middle School and High School FCCLA took 58 students, 4 chaperones, and 2 teachers to the Ohio FCCLA Career Day on April 13th. The students went to Cleveland State University in the morning, received a tour, and ate at the on campus dining. Next, the students learned about careers associated with running an organization like the one surrounding the Cavaliers and got a behind the scenes tour of the facilities. The students, finally, came back to the arena for the game and enjoy watching the Cavaliers bring home a victory.

Students Receive High Praise
April 18, three OMS students participated at the OMEA solo and ensemble competition. All three scored superior ratings (highest possible score) for their solo performances at this optional event.

Shelbie Colburn, flute solo
Logan Hissong, baritone horn solo
Abigail Tan, violin solo

(The solo that Abigail played is quite difficult and usually performed by advanced high school juniors and seniors.)

Congratulations to these students!
 
Electronic Devices Simplify Poetry
Language arts students demonstrate how they use their personal electronic devices to assist in the process of paraphrasing the poem Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe. Using their devices to define unfamiliar words, students are able to place the poem's content into their own words. Once the poem has been paraphrased, students will practice oral readings selecting one stanza from the poem to present to the class with feeling and meaning.  Their electronic devices will also be able to provide students audio files to hear the correct pronunciations of difficult words. Finally, students will be able to use their devices to take a photo of the poem and have it at their fingertips in order to practice whenever time is available.
