Ontario Middle School

Project Earns Rewards

During the first semester of the 2021-2022 school year, an Ontario Middle School Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) class completed a service learning project with help from their teacher, Mrs. Melissa Muzic. Their project was called Caring Christmas. The students raised funds and used them to serve a meal to those in need, buy presents for kids in the community, collect and donate toys and books, and purchase jackets for the homeless. This project was completed as part of the Lead4Change program. The students submitted their project to Lead4Change and received 2nd place and $500 towards one of their charities. United Way of Richland County was the recipient of those funds and they will be using the money to benefit their Big Red Bookshelf initiative. On the last day of school, Dan Varn, United Way Executive Director, presented certificates to the students who participated and the students presented him with the $500 check. 

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
