End-of-the-Year Seventh Grade Awards

8th Grade Awards

The 8th-grade celebrated their last middle school award assembly on Tuesday, May 24th. Awards were presented to outstanding performances in their classes, participating in different groups/classes, outstanding examples by following The Warrior Way, and overall GPA awards.

We also sent our well-wishes to Mr. Strickler as he steps into his new role as Superintendent. This was his only class to be their principal for all 3 of their middle school years at OMS.

And last but not least, we took time to send our sad goodbyes to our beloved 8th-grade American history teacher, Mr. Tagg. He will be very missed by staff and students alike as he steps into his next journey: retireme

Happy Retirement Mr. Tagg!

Students gave social studies teacher, Mr. Tagg, a hearty handshake and a personal card of good wishes as he retires.

Duck Intermission

During the seventh grade incentive kickball contests, games were halted temporarily to allow a mother duck with her brood of ducklings to cross the fields. Once the games resumed, fun was had by all, even the weather cooperated and provided perfect game conditions.

A special thank you to the many parent volunteers who assisted with the outside picnic lunch. The food was great and the service was even better. The kickball tournament will continue this Wednesday, May 25th (weather permitting) at Marshall Park.
The Kona Ice Truck (sponsored by our PBIS team) stopped by OMS to help us celebrate the end of another fantastic school year. In addition to all students being able to buy one, 30 students were gifted with free cones for being recognized by teachers and peers as outstanding Warrior Way students in the month of April. A lot of fun with a side of brain freeze! 
The 6th graders were rewarded with a cookout by Mrs. Ellis for winning Scholastic's "All For Books" challenge at OMS, Friday, May 13.

State Competition for Power of the Pen

On Friday, May 13th, four Ontario Middle Students traveled to Otterbein University to participate in the state Power of the Pen competition.  Payne Schwartz, Eliana Fittante, Tatum Mottayaw, and Angel Tan qualified for the state competition by scoring in the top 10 percent of writers at the regional level.  They wrote in three separate 35-minute rounds on Friday creating stories based on three different prompts.  After those rounds, Eliana was announced as a finalist and she then wrote one final story in a 30-minute round.  Eliana was announced as the 7th-grade 3rd place winner at the end of a very long and exciting day. These four students should be very proud of their accomplishments as each grade level started with over one thousand writers in 16 districts across the state of Ohio.  Congratulations to all of our state finalists for representing Ontario Middle School and congratulations to Eliana for her amazing achievement.

May's Staff MVP

Paulette Huber was recently named the May OMS Staff MVP. She will be retiring at the end of the school year and be missed dearly. 

Mrs. Huber is a fantastic teacher and so good to her students. We all wish her the best of luck as she heads into her retirement years!
