King’s legacy lives on through area students
Essay contest asked students to reflect on their visions for justice
Five decades after Martin Luther King Jr.’s work toward greater civil rights and racial equality was cut short in 1968, Fostoria students gathered in council city chambers to reflect on his legacy.
The city of Fostoria partnered with the Fostoria Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to host the Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration Monday afternoon. The annual event recognized students from Fostoria City schools and St. Wendelin Catholic schools for their own visions and plans to continue King’s pursuit of justice.
Students in grades 1-6 were asked to write an essay on how they can promote justice in their community and beyond to be considered in the Tiffin-Seneca Martin Luther King Jr. Day Committee’s 30th annual essay contest.
This year’s winners included Maciel Salcido, a second-grader, and Josh Dibble, a fourth grader, both at St. Wendelin; Emily Catherine Sidney and Brooklyn Holman, both fifth-graders, and Makalynn McCumber, a sixth-grader, all of Fostoria Intermediate Elementary.Each student was presented a certificate and gift bag as a prize after they practiced reading their essay in front of friends and family.

New Digital Resource Launched for Preschool Learning
Ohio’s parents and educators have a new resource to help learners ages 3-5 prepare for school and their futures. The easy-to-navigate INFOhio Early Learning Portal contains more than 50 websites and apps chosen and evaluated by educators and librarians with expertise in early learning and literacy.
The INFOhio Early Learning Portal helps preschool children:
- Learn letters, numbers and basic knowledge;
- Interact with other children and adults;
- Engage in meaningful play; and
- Develop focus and problem-solving skills.
Each resource supports Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards for school readiness. Parents and educators also will find tips on integrating appropriate technology into preschool children’s learning. Adults can join children in using the digital resources when they play games, watch videos, or read and listen to e-books.
The INFOhio Early Learning Portal is a partnership of INFOhio, the Ohio Department of Education, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and the Office of Gov. John Kasich. Nearly all resources in the portal are free, with a few available for a minimal fee.
