Junior Warriors Basketball Program

Kindergarten / Fifth Grade 
Mrs. Ditty's kindergarten class and Mr. Johnson's 5th grade class have become reading buddies and have shared many experiences together. This month Mr. Johnson's students made a big book of a fable they had read and made their own version of it. After completing the writing process and publishing their books, the students shared their published books with Mrs. Ditty's students. Mr. Johnson even got in on the experience and wrote a book of his own and shared it with the kindergarteners. The 5th grade students read their book several times to different students. This class is such an inspiration to our little ones and because of their hard work Mrs. Ditty's class has started writing a book to share with them. We are so thankful to have these experiences with Mr. Johnson's class! 
First Grade
In Writing Workshop, Mrs. Sunnucks’s Class has been working on how to write non-fiction pieces. They are currently browsing and reading non-fiction books on various topics such as, bees, presidents, horses, butterflies, skateboarding and much more. They have learned that they can be “experts” when they use their own knowledge of a topic to teach others. Students are working on using research to expand and build on their previous knowledge in order to add more facts and details to their non-fiction pieces.  They are learning how important it is to make their writing easy for others to read by using correct grammar, mechanics, and using neat handwriting. With teacher support and guidance, the students will be learning how to revise, edit and publish a non-fiction book. The class will end their non-fiction writing unit with researching and publishing a book on penguins. The students are eager to publish a book just like a real author.
Third Grade
The third graders in Miss Vellucci’s class have been learning about fractions. They began to complete a fraction flip book. The students may use this when they need a visual representation of a fraction, a fraction number line, or a shaded fraction circle. The students also worked on fraction task cards where they identified fractions of a whole.

Career STEM Ambassadors Needed

We are looking for career STEM ambassadors!  What is a career STEM ambassador?  A career STEM ambassador is someone who is passionate about what they do in science, technology, engineering or math and wants to make an impact in student’s lives.  There are so many jobs and opportunities that our students don’t realize and are not exposed to - a better understanding of the specialized training and skills needed for these careers is critical.   Sharing your personal story and life-pathway toward a career is priceless.  If you or someone you know is interested in giving a school presentation, providing job shadowing, or offering a field trip opportunity, please fill out the form at this link: https://goo.gl/forms/dnbH3PVOdrml5QSm2 . Your influence in our student’s lives here at Ontario will be a lasting legacy and give them the real-world experiences they can’t get in a classroom. Thank you!
