On March 26th, Debbie Berges came in to talk to the 4th grade classes about water conservation. After her presentation, she put the students into groups and challenged them to come up with an idea or invention to increase the amount of freshwater available for use. The groups then presented their ideas to the whole class. Thank you Debbie for being such a great resource for our students and teachers in so many ways!
Grades K-4 have been learning about the Zones of Regulation and strategies to self regulate with Mrs. Kolterman. Self-regulation is something everyone continuously works on whether or not we are aware of it. We all face tough situations that test our limits. If we are able to recognize when we are becoming less regulated, we are able to do something about it to manage our feelings and get ourselves to a healthy place. This comes more naturally for some, but for others it is a skill that needs more attention and practice. This is the goal of The Zones of Regulation with our young students. Thank you Mrs. Kolterman for your dedication to our kids!
Congratulations to our week four 4th grade Readers of the Week! Keep up the hard work! 1st - Cahlan Kaberline 2nd - Camdyn Fordham 3rd - Vivian Berges 4th - Ryen Valburg 5th - Rayna Meyerkorth

A couple of Mrs. Glessner's 6th grade students, Marissa Sauvage and Tyler Smith, helped out by creating and putting up a bulletin board in the grade school hallway. It serves as a welcome to all grade school students as they walk in the door each morning. Nice job guys!
Today, Mr. Kufahl's senior U.S. Government class concluded its latest unit with a simulation on local government. The class went to the Onaga City Hall and conducted a "City Council meeting." The issue was a proposed ordinance establishing a curfew within the city for citizens under the age of 18. Students filled the roles of mayor, city council members, and four different groups of people either for or against the ordinance (Police Department, Parent-Teacher Association, Student Council, Chamber of Commerce). They spent the last week preparing their presentations, questions, and material to make their case. The seniors worked extremely hard on the project, the simulation went very well, and it appears there are some future politicians in this year's senior class! The class would like to give a BIG thank you to Sarah and Susan at City Hall for adjusting their schedules today to help make the project possible!
Buffalo Fun Club “pilots” Brooklyn, Preston, Charlee, and Waylon test out their newly folded Arrowhead paper airplanes during an enrichment activity. Buffalo Fun Club is an afterschool program for PK-6 students where each day (M-Th) our students have a snack, recreation time, homework time, and an enrichment activity. In creating these sophisticated airplanes our "pilots" are learning to follow directions, solve problems, and tap into their resilience when their efforts don’t go as they plan. The next airplanes we will create are named the "F-15" and the "Dagger".
The JV baseball game against Nemaha Central that was originally scheduled for March 26th has been rescheduled for April 30th. It will be played in Seneca at 4:30pm. It will be a double header, each game being 5 innings.
Natalie Jeanneret and Kiarra Simmons may appear to be just playing with the rubber ducks in the attached photo, but they are actually counting them to make sure they are all accounted for. The freshman class has been working on a rubber duck fundraiser this semester that has gone very well. In the other photo, Christian Henneberg, Hunter Lamond, Konnor Nider, and J.D. Rice are polishing the metal ducks that will be used as part of a thank you package for those that helped to support the First Annual Class of 2024 Duck Race. Mr. Figge designed the ducks using the CNC Laser Cutter in the Ag shop

Onaga cleaned up in the JV meet as Wyatt was followed closely by junior Josh Marten (2nd), sophomore Donovan Mason (3rd), and freshmen Gavin Goodrum (5th) and Tatum Lara (7th). Congratulations to the golf team and Coach Noel!
