Thank you Cardenas Markets, Inc. for your continued support for OMSD 

Thank you Cardenas Markets, Inc. and Public Affairs Director Mr. Marco Robles for demonstrating the importance of education and commitment to the families of OMSD by providing educational opportunities through philanthropic work.  Cardenas Markets was one of the first donors to the Ontario-Montclair Schools Foundation and the Promise Scholars program.  To date, Cardenas Markets is the single largest donor who helped build the Promise Scholars scholarships and demonstrates to other companies and donors the value of the program.  Cardenas Markets supports Promise Scholars events, school site events, and local community events through their monetary contributions, as well as food donations, and many other resources that make these events successful and possible.

Currently, Marco Robles serves as Public Affairs Director for Cardenas Markets and has been invaluable in building the relationship between OMSD and Cardenas Markets. The leadership of Marco Robles, along with his commitment to making a difference for students throughout the Inland Empire has opened doors for further opportunities and a partnership with Cardenas Markets and the OMSD.

The Annual OMSD Fitness and Family Time at Skate Express

Rolling our way to Fitness and Family Time On a Thursday night in October the Physical Education team servicing the schools of Arroyo, Howard, and Vista Grande Elementary Schools held their annual Family Fitness Skate Night at Skate Express. There were approximately 350 students and their parents in attendance.  The event was filled with families taking to the skating rink, many for the first time, for a night on wheels. The PE teachers were so proud to see how many OMSD families made the choice during their busy schedules to participate in this heart healthy activity outside of the normal school setting.  A special thank you to the wonderful OMSD Physical Education Team for hosting this outstanding family event.

Monte Vista receives a school makeover hosted by the Inland Empire United Way

An exciting event recently took place at Monte Vista Elementary School.  Monte Vista received a school makeover hosted by the Inland Empire United Way. Over 300 volunteers came to Monte Vista to paint murals, work in the extensive garden that students had cultivated, and build an agility course on the primary playground. Volunteers also decorated the kindergarten playground with academic murals displaying high-frequency words. 

olunteers were welcomed by Greg Bradbard of the Inland Empire United Way, the Mayor of Montclair, Paul Eaton, and the Ontario Montclair School District Board of Trustees President Elvia M. Rivas and Trustee Kris Brake. 

Monte Vista is the third school to receive a school makeover in the Ontario Montclair School District by the Inland Empire United Way in the last several years.  The district is very fortunate to have such a wonderful partner in the inland Empire United Way. 

Oaks Eagle Pride Band visits Toyota

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Toyota North America Parts Center in Ontario, invited Oaks Middle School to perform at their facility. For many students, this was their first opportunity to perform for an audience outside of the school. The event was fun for all who attended and Oaks’ Eagles truly soared as they represented their school. At one point, Mrs. Kubota, Oaks’ new band director, had the audience participating with the music.  Earlier this month, Mr. Esquivel, from Toyota, visited Oaks as part of a mentor program offered through Toyota. Mr. Esquivel worked with students from the new Gateway to Technology Academy. His presentation reinforced the “Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens” coursework. Oaks has truly benefited from their association with the Toyota Corporation.
