COLLEGE DAY 2014 at Corona Elementary

Did you hear the marching bands?  Did you see the parade of university colors represented?  Corona Elementary School hosted its 9th Annual College Day on October 10th, 2014.  College fight songs were playing and pom-poms were waving while Corona School welcomed parents and community leaders to a whole school assembly to showcase Corona’s college bound culture.  “This event is getting bigger and better each year as we focus on developing college and career ready students here at Corona,” remarked Sal Flores, Principal of Corona School.  “Each teacher has chosen a university to highlight in the classroom, and students have learned chants or cheers for that school.  Today they are all wearing their brand new college t-shirts which they will now wear every Monday to start each week with our college focus.   Read more...

Vernon Middle School Dance Team at LA County Fair

The Vernon Middle School Dance Team represented their school at the L.A. County Fair.   Eager to show their Panther Pride with blue poms and Vernon uniforms, the students danced in the Montclair, Ontario, & West Covina Day Parade. The dancers smiled and danced non-stop throughout the mile-long parade and were excited to represent their team and school at the fair for the first time.


Elementary Music Teachers Encourage Music Participation

To promote and expose elementary students to the arts and to encourage participation in music, the elementary music teachers visited every elementary school and performed a musical skit featuring the music from the popular movie “Frozen”.    OMSD is one of the very few districts who continue to offer music to elementary students.   The Board of Trustees were also entertained by the teachers at the September 4th Board of Trustees meeting.


Picnic with the Principal

Corona Elementary School is celebrating Highest Attendance Percentages each month with a Picnic with the Principal!  Classrooms with the highest overall attendance percentage for the month by grade level are rewarded with a classroom certificate and trophy to display in the room, but even better than that, they get to eat a picnic style lunch on the playground with music and streamers as well as special games planned just for them. Winning classrooms must have a minimum 98% monthly attendance percentage, however, most of the grade level winners have been well over that with percentages at or above 99% for the month.

Buena Vista promotes health and wellness!

One of the four major focus areas at Buena Vista Arts-integrated School is to promote health and wellness in a safe and positive school environment.  This year, students have activity options to choose from before school that serves to meet individual needs while promoting physical activity.  Research shows that moderate to vigorous physical activity before learning helps students retain more information in the classroom. Students at Buena Vista are encouraged to begin their day with a healthy breakfast.  The breakfast program begins at 7:20 am every day.  This nutritious start to student’s day provides them the necessary energy to participate in our Morning Mile Club!  Read more...
