The Ontario-Montclair School District and OMSD TV are proud to present our first episode of the 2014-2015 school year. In this episode we visit the amazing De Anza Middle School and OMSD’s First Annual Cross-Country event. Our visit to De Anza takes us on a musical journey lead by principal Dr. Marco Villegas, De Anza staff and talented student body.  The cross-country event was a huge community success. The first heat was for our special needs students who were accompanied by OMSD staff.  Several heats followed for different grade levels and genders. The atmosphere was electric as each school competed for the inaugural crown.
