Step into California History

There is no better way to learn about our rich California history than to experience it. That is precisely what the OMSD eighth grade students did. On May 3, 2015, one hundred sixty-eight OMSD eighth grade students and twenty OMSD teacher and mentor chaperones set out for a five day field trip to Sacramento and San Francisco. Day one was spent traveling in luxury charter busses to Sacramento. In the evening the group went to the movie theater to see “Little Boy”. On day two students took a private tour of our State Capitol Building and traveled to Old Town Sacramento where they toured the historic city. Read more...

Edison Students Jog for Fun

Edison had many great activities this year and this year came to a close with a spectacular Jog-a-thon organized by Edison’s wonderful PFO. Students were encouraged to return a pledge sheet, allowing them to walk, jog, or run for a certain amount of time depending on their grade level. The funds collected will be used to pay for fieldtrips and purchase any materials that will enrich Edison’s school programs. With music playing in the background and encouraged by parents, staff, and players from the Ontario Fury, students jogged several laps around the field. After every lap, each student received a raffle ticket giving them a chance to win one of two bicycles. In addition to fun and exercise, students who raised $25 or more, received a free t-shirt.


Multilingual Recognition Awards

Congratulations to Arlene Rodriguez (Central Language Academy Principal), Isabel Santos (Vernon Middle School Newcomer Teacher), Silvia Vargas (Paraprofessional), Lourdes Mendoza (Parent Volunteer) and Soledad Franco (Administrative Assistant, Learning & Teaching) for being honored during the San Bernardino County Superintendent Of Schools Multilingual Recognition Dinner.  This annual recognition program promotes the quality of education for language learners by celebrating the dedication of individuals who have made a difference in the lives of students and families.

Rising Stars

OMSD hosted its first Annual “Rising Star” recognition ceremony. This fantastic event was created to recognize students who have experienced a variety of challenges in their lives which have had an initial impact on their academic growth and school behavior.  However, through hard work, perseverance, and guidance, these students have “turned a corner” and are now on a path to academic growth and success.

District Mentors recognized students for taking charge of their lives and making a positive future for themselves.  Over 250 family and staff members joined the celebration to honor these wonderful students.

Congratulations to the 2015 “Rising Stars”!


Wiltsey eighth grade students were actively engaged in community service as a part of  the IB Programme this year. Students researched and identified community and/or world issues and explored and implement solutions as a part of their IB Design class requirements. There were many projects this year that were amazing. Students held a film festival to raise money for St Judes Children Hospital, an after school car wash raised money for a local homeless shelter, another group of students presented an informative and emotional school wide Powerpoint presentation on autism during National Autism Day, and another group designed and built equipment for a local animal shelter to name a few. The picture above is of Wiltsey eighth grade students working on feline bunk beds for the local animal shelter. Through community service, students are learning how to use their education to reach out to their community and make a difference. What a positive experience this has been for the WIltsey students in living out the IB philosophy.

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.
