RIMS Science and Engineering Fair

On Wednesday evening, April 2nd, 16 projects developed by a total of 20 OMSD students were presented at the RIMS Science and Engineering Fair at the National Orange Show in San Bernardino.  The District is pleased to announce that every project presented received a medal, with 9 bronze medals, 5 silver medals, and 2 gold medals.  The success of our OMSD students speaks volumes about their individual talent, as well as speaks to the excellent teaching and learning taking place in our schools thanks to our amazing teachers.

This year, the RIMS Science and Engineering Fair hosted 837 projects from 4 counties and over 950 individual participants.   OMSD student, Serena Cardona from Edison Academy, not only scored within the top 10% of all projects, she was also selected as an alternate for the California State Science Fair.   Serena is pictured receiving her District medal from Board Vice President Kris Brake.

Congratulations to all participating OMSD students for their accomplishments.  Through hard work and determination, students excelled in this competition and continue to demonstrate the benefits of the world-class education provided in OMSD!

3rd Annual Ontario-Montclair School District Chess Tournament

The 3rd Annual Ontario-Montclair School District Chess Tournament was quite a success. To prepare for the tournament, students from each elementary and middle school formed chess clubs and held lunch time meetings to learn the rules and strategies of the game. Each school site sponsored its own tournament, and the winners represented their schools at the finals on Saturday, November 16th.

The tournament started with a round of 64 students. The final round was played by master chess players Wes Alameda, seventh grade student at Serrano Middle School; and Quyhn Samreth, a fifth grader from Edison Elementary School. Wes won the final round and was crowned the 2013 OMSD Chess Champion. Sonny Montenez, an eighth grader from Serrano Middle School, and Mario Padilla, a student at Ramona Elementary School, were the third and fourth place winners. Congratulations to all participants!


 

The Physical Education Department Goes to UCLA

On Saturday, November 2nd, the Elementary Physical Education Department and  Del Norte Elementary School partnered up to attend the "I'm Going to College" event.  Lead teacher Carri Fredericks along with her teaching assistants, Jason Hickman, Jeanne Morales, and Daryl Durston spent the day with 55 Del Norte students and chaperones at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for a college fair and football game. 

The event provided a great opportunity to expose our students to university life, as well as a reminder that it's never too early to begin thinking about college.  Students had the opportunity to speak with academic counselors, get autographs from UCLA student-athletes and speak with current UCLA students.  Other college fair activities included carnival games, giveaway items and face painting. 

After getting into the UCLA spirit we headed into the stadium to cheer on the Bruins as they defeated Colorado 45-23.


 

It's Supper Time at OMSD!

On the first day of school 2,500 students at OMSD did something at school they had never done before. They had supper. The Food and Nutrition Services Department is now providing meals to students participating in certain after-school programs. The meals are served right after school before the programs begins so that students are nourished and ready to get started on homework and other learning activities.

OMSD has provided after-school snacks to students for many years. This year the District took advantage of the opportunity to provide suppers of higher nutritional value than the snacks. Students are provided with fruits and vegetables which aligns with the State Superintendent’s “Team California for Healthy Kids” (TCHK) campaign that promotes healthy eating and physical activity through the day.

The menus for the after-school supper program are mostly hot meals and entrees that had not been previously included in the lunch program. This provides variety for the students. The menus for the after-school supper program are available on the District website.
