Sultana Sports and Science Academy Offers Family Math Night!

Our teachers shared the importance of making math meaningful and relevant to students’ daily lives, illustrating opportunities to engage in oral language development, and sharpening the skills of our students, molding them into mathematicians while having fun at the same time. Families had the opportunity to engage in two different sessions where they played educational games with their students and were given ready-made resources so they could continue the fun at home. A special thanks to our Sultana Academy Special Events Committee for coordinating a successful event!

Montera Is Scientifically Shining

Science involves patience and perseverance. Science teaches students about the world around them too. But most of all, science is a wonderful way to solve problems and spark creativity and ingenuity in our kids. That is why we are proud to announce that On Saturday, March 7, 2015, Montera students participated in the Inland Empire’s Science Olympiad. Mrs. Hellings said, "Our Olympians met all the challenges with fearless, determined, effective team work! I am so proud of them!” Read More...

Celebrating Our Elementary Honor Orchestra

LCAP Season Continues!

An important part of the development of our Local Control Accountability Plan includes gathering input from our stakeholders.  Who better to give input than our primary clients…OUR STUDENTS!  On Wednesday, March 18th ninety student representatives, from our nine schools with 8th grade students, gathered in our first LCAP Student Congress.  Dr. Byrd presented information about the LCAP, including the eight state priorities and the Local Control Funding Formula, to our student ambassadors.  Draft goals were presented to these young adults and then the students generated feedback about what was working at their school as well as giving ideas for improvement.  The students actively engaged in the discussion around each goal and provided earnest input about how to help the district to create action plans to impact the education of the children in the district.  It was an amazing group of thoughtful students in action in OMSD.  Thank you to the students and staff at the sites that helped to make this first effort to gain stakeholder input from our students a resounding success!
