First Grade at Div III State Tournament

Showtime!

By Nelle Nutter

After performing the Star Spangled Banner at a home Varsity Girls' Basketball game, the first graders went viral on Twitter and Facebook, and caught the attention of Jerry Snodgrass at the OHSAA.
Mr. Snodgrass contacted Mrs. Nutter to see if the group would be interested in singing at a Boys' Championship game in Columbus...and of course we said yes!
Thirty-four students loaded a bus at 7:30 to head to Columbus for a 10:45 game.  The students entered the arena in an entrance that allowed them to go straight on to the floor.  The students were amazed by the Schottenstein Center, from an adult's perspective, their pure amazement may have been the best part of the day!
The students practiced several times before finding their seats.
When it was time for the game, they marched on to the court with confidence and sang with great enthusiasm and pride in front of thousands of people!  After they performed, they took their seats and enjoyed the game.  They also took a walking tour of the Schott.
The PTO supplied students with snacks for the way to Columbus, a parent treated them all with cotton candy, the school provided lunch and the OHSAA provided tickets for the students and staff attending.
This trip would not have possible without the preparation provided by Carrie Freshour, Tracy Frombaugh, Tonya Kimmel, Sean Weisenauer, Teresa Wenner, Dawn Schaaf and of course, the students' parents!

First grade students that participated in the event were: Left to Right: Back Row: Aaron Rabun, Addie Dunford, Brooke Frombaugh, Allyson Liming, Landon Miller, Trey Johnson, Korbin Wyss, Daniel Fleming, Braxton Leeper, Zayden Reinhart, Gavin Koehler, Shilese LaFrance

Middle Row: Allie Bessinger, Evan Stacklin, Jesse Whitmeyer, Cali Weible, Daina Tate, Brooklyn Stauffer, Gwendolyn Collene, 
Gavin Cross-Tucker, Victoria Kelly, Evan Hedges

Front Row: Maggie Ridge, Kylie Harer, Brooke Schieber, Braxton Hunt, Cali Holbrook, Maddison Keaton, Hayden Langenderfer, Willa Johnson, Caroline Sheldon, Alivia Ritzler, Eli Cooper, Brennen Westrick

Presidential "March Madness"

"Presidential Madness"

By: Mr. Banta

I am conducting a simulation on presidents/presidential hopefuls in all of my classes. The main idea is to "answer" the question of how well presidents/hopefuls from different eras would do if they competed against each other in an election.  I am using the format of the March Madness Bracket to conduct this simulation.  Students will be required to complete this project in an effort to educate them about the presidency in a non-traditional manner.

I will be using the progression of the actual tournament to update the presidential bracket.
For example: George Washington is the #1 seed in the Midwest Region.  His "success" throughout the tournament will depend on the school that is actually seeded #1 in that region.

The assignment is broken into 2 parts
  • Physical Bracket
  1. Students will fill out the attached bracket of presidents/hopefuls, making predictions on how well each president/hopeful will progress throughout the tournament.
  2. Accurately predicting the winner is not determined in the grade.
  • Written Portion
  1. Students will label their Final Four picks on the “Written Portion”
  2. 3 facts are to be given for each Final Four pick demonstrating why that president/hopeful is worthy of becoming the “presidential champion”
  3. The students will write one paragraph explaining who they picked as the “presidential champion” and why that person is worthy of beating every other president/hopeful in the tournament.

Students will update their bracket in real time during the actual tournament.  A space on the back wall of the classroom will be used to monitor the progress.

In conclusion, the intent of the project is to have students familiarize themselves with our presidents other than a face and number.

Below are Mr. Banta's recaps of each round.
