Recognizing The National Honor Society & National Junior Honor Society Recognizing The National Honor Society & National Junior Honor Society: Dear Community, Due to the circumstances this school year, we were unfortunately not able to have the traditional and special induction ceremony for the National Honor and National Junior Honor Society that we always do. Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Bort were still able to follow through with the induction process and hand out Congratulation letters along with the certificates to the students who were inducted into the NHS and the NJHS this year, just in a different way.  Letters and certificates were sent home in the mail and a virtual ceremony was created to honor those members being inducted. We are very proud of each of these new inductees and hope to personally congratulate each of you when we see you in the fall!  NHS & NHJS 2020 Video ...

Share The Love - A Video from Onondaga Art Students Share The Love - A Video from Onondaga Art Students: Hello everyone! Our Art students in 7th grade, 8th grade, and Studio Art have worked together to make a video for the community! Our Onondaga Art students were encouraged to make a heart out of whatever materials they wanted to use, and then filmed themselves passing the heart through the camera frame. The idea is that they're passing the hearts to each other to "share the love" with the community during this time of distance learning. We're sending our love out to all students, parents, educators, and the rest of the Onondaga community. All hearts were created by Mrs. Ryan's 7th Grade Art students and Mrs. Passetti's 8th Grade Art and Studio Art students.
