OMSD Hosts 2nd Annual Cross Country Event
The 2nd Annual Cross Country event brought over 400 students to the Briggs Education Center for a morning of fun and competition. The morning began with over 40 special needs students racing, with the assistance of staff, through the streets in the surrounding neighborhood. Every special needs student finished the route to the cheers of other students encouraging them. Once they crossed the finish line, each received a medal.
There were four heats for the general education students (7th grade boys and girls; 8th grade boys and girls).
At the end of all the competition, Edison GATE Academy was awarded the top team prize; Vernon and Wiltsey tied for second; and Oaks and Vina Danks tied for third.
Congratulations to all participants, coaches, parents and schools. Thank you to District Office personnel for assisting students and to the Aspiring Administrators Group (Melissa Scotti, Stacia Neer, Wanda Rhodes, Maria Dunlap, Michelle McMahon, and Armando Arredondo) , along with the leadership of TOA Wayne Bradley for organizing the extraordinary event. Another thank you to the City of Ontario’s Police Department and Public Works Department for closing and securing the streets for our students.
