District 10 Honor Band

Eighth grade band students Jonathan Winans (clarinet) and Myles Born (trombone) participated in the Ohio Music Education Association's District 10 Honor Band on Saturday, December 2 at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. The students in the honor band were under the direction of Dr. Wendy Matthews from Kent State University. 

Math Problem-solving Skills in Action

Students are having energetic debates as they analyze and decipher real-world scenarios, using variables and inequalities to untangle situations. The focus is not only on their understanding and unraveling the given problems but, they also need to apply their knowledge of solving inequalities to find the answer. The active questioning, explaining, and critiquing of each other's approaches fosters collaboration and sharpens their problem-solving skills.

PBIS Awards Warrior Time Classes

As seen in the video above, students in Mr. Canfield and Mrs. Johnson's Warrior Time classes recently received some fun time in the gym as a reward for earning positive behavior points (PBIS) as a collective group. Each grade level had a Warrior Time class selected for the month of October based on the class total of earned grit points. Students had a great time utilizing some physical energy rather than just brain power.

Peace Poster Contest Winners!

Sixth Grade Art Students

Mrs. Garberich's 6th grade art class participated in an International Peace Poster contest sponsored by the local Lions Club. The theme was "Dare to Dream." Students worked hard researching what it would mean to draw Dare and Dream as a theme for their posters. It took weeks to draw and paint the posters. Tony Sansalone, from the Mansfield Art Center along with the Lion's Club Board selected Emma Boor to represent our region in the contest, and we wish her good luck as she continues the competition. First runner-up was Phebe Hipsher, 2nd runner-up was Aileen Mora Steiding, and third-runner up was Sylvia Burns. Congratulations to our school winners and all those students who participated.
