Mrs. Ditty's First Grade Class

Mrs. Ditty's Ditty-O's had a blast sharing their animal research with families! From using Chromebooks to diving into National Geographic, her first graders soaked up all the information they could about their chosen animals. 

Each student turned their findings into a published book, complete with habitat details, diet preferences, and fascinating facts! To kick off the event, they serenaded everyone with animal-themed songs using sign language and donned adorable animal costumes. Then, they wowed the crowd by confidently presenting their findings, including habitat types and animal classifications.

Mrs. Winningham's 2nd Grade Class

Mrs. Winningham’s class spent a few days before Spring Break learning about the solar eclipse. They watched a video, made a few models of an eclipse, and read about eclipses.

Mrs. Jolin's 3rd Grade Class

Mrs. Jolin's class wrapped up their economic unit by diving into the world of business. As students crafted business plans and prepared to showcase their products during Entrepreneur Day, they also earned Jolin Cash for embodying #TheWarriorWary. With their hard-earned rewards, they eagerly indulged in treats and enjoyed the fruits of their entrepreneurial endeavors.

Community Participation Requested

Ontario city leaders are requesting your help as part of the community planning process by taking the community preferences survey, the second and final survey in the process of framing the new Ontario Comprehensive Community Action Plan.

As part of the PLAN Ontario process that began in September, residents and students were able to complete surveys to help the steering committee identify broad planning themes and issues and opportunities to address.  

The 5 themes that emerged from the survey are:

  • Pedestrian Connectivity
  • Infrastructure
  • Neighborhood Revitalization
  • Parks & Recreation
  • Economic Development

Another, more direct “preferences survey” was developed to help the planning team and steering committee in framing strategies and tools for these areas.  This preference survey can be completed by visiting the Ontario City website at www.ontarioohio.org and clicking on Community Preferences Survey or by going directly to the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OntarioPreferencesSurvey.

To date, over 1,200 residents, students, and other stakeholders have either completed the community survey or have been interviewed.  For those residents that have not completed the initial community survey, there’s still time.  A link to this brief survey can be found on the City of Ontario’s website under Community Survey.  

If you have any questions concerning the planning process or on ways to participate, please contact:
