Parent Educational Center Monthly Speaker Series

Our families and community members gathered on September 4, 2014 at the Linda Vista Multipurpose Room to receive important information on how to embark in a supported and guided journey to a High School Diploma and career through the partnership between Ontario-Montclair School District, Chaffee Adult School and the Mexican Consulate’s office.  The featured topic for this month was “Serving Our Community: Providing Education and High School Diploma Pathway”.  During this day, our Parent Educational Center staff welcomed over 100 parents who received information and resources.   From this workshop, a strong cohort of parents registered and are starting a new and exciting phase in their educational journey.  Congratulations to all!


OMSD Board of Trustees Honors Wiltsey Middle School

Gaining International Baccalaureate (IB) authorization is a lengthy and time intensive process that involves in-depth staff development, careful instructional planning, and deliberate changes to the school environment.  Wiltsey Middle Staff members took on that challenge and have become an IB World School!  At the September 4th Board of Trustees meeting, a Resolution was unanimously passed honoring Wiltsey Middle School.  Congratulations to the Wiltsey Community!


 Thank you David Choi, Allstar Kia of Pomona and San Bernardino

David Choi, owner of Allstar Kia of Pomona and San Bernardino is a founding donor to the Ontario-Montclair Schools Foundation and the Promise Scholars Program.  Mr. Choi’s generosity, including the annual donation of a new Kia Soul to be given away at the Reindeer Run has been instrumental in the growth of the Promise Scholars Program.    Kurt Anderson (on behalf of Mr. Choi and Allstar Kia) accepted recognition from the OMSD Board of Trustees. 


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...
