3rd Annual City of Ontario Reindeer Run and Rudolph Dash to Benefit Promise Scholars: Saturday, December 13, 2014

We had close to 2,000 registered participants with approximately 400 more walkers and runners than the previous year.  The increase is thanks to all the OMSD schools signing up so many participants! The Ontario-Montclair Schools Foundation will soon be announcing the winning OMSD school with the highest percentage of participants.

We had over 30 volunteers through Promise Scholars who helped City of Ontario staff with the event, with the pancake breakfast, and the Promise Scholars booth.

The winner of the Allstar Kia Soul was Norma Lopez of Hesperia (winning ticket was sold by an OMSD employee).

The City of Ontario staff once again did an outstanding job in producing this event for the community!

Welcome and Congratulations Board of Trustees

At the December 11th Organizational Board Meeting, Dr. Michael C. Flores and Mr. Alfonso Sanchez were administered the Oath of Office along with re-elected members Elvia M. Rivas and Samuel Crowe.

OMSD students perform at Montclair Plaza

On Saturday Dec 13th, OMSD elementary music groups performed at Montclair Plaza as part of the yearly Holiday entertainment. The Elementary Honor Band and Choir, made up of students from almost all the OMSD elementary schools performed Holiday music for parents and shoppers. Directing the groups were our own Ontario-Montclair School District Music Teachers; Daniel Salcido, Doug Elkins and David Moody.  The event showcased 100 student musicians from Haynes, Moreno, Sultana, Lincoln, Montera and Vineyard.

OMSD performing arts students spread holiday cheer at the annual Christmas on Euclid 2014

Students from the Ontario-Montclair school district enjoyed participating in the annual Christmas On Euclid Event on Saturday, December 6, 2014.  Some highlights were "Feliz Navidad" performed by the Wiltsey Middle School advanced band, "Santa's Angry Elves" performed by the District Elementary Honor Band, a fantastic (and complicated) 9 minute "Frozen" medley performed by the District Elementary Honor Choir, and several string and band seasonal highlights performed by De Anza students.  The students had such a great experience performing at the new Ontario Town Square amphitheater.


Can you extract DNA from fruit? Can you determine the best soil composition for growing fruits and vegetables? The Wiltsey International Baccalaureate World School students learned these things during their annual Science Fair. Every Wiltsey student participated in this year’s event and there were over 500 project entries. There were so many projects that they could not all be displayed within the Multi-Purpose Room and additional rooms were needed. There was a large crowd for the Science Fair family night event where awards were presented to students in all three grade levels. The winners of the science fair will move onto the District Science Fair. Click here to see our winners.

Montera Students Jog for Joy… and Health!

On November 19, 2014 Montera Students dressed in jogging clothes and tennis shoes for a Jog-A-Thon event that focused on the rewards of a healthy lifestyle.  The purpose of the Jog-A-Thon was twofold:  To promote health and fitness for our students and it was a fundraiser for the school.

“When students did their laps, teachers, parents and support team members were there to cheer them on and support our school,” said Ms. Strait, Elementary Administrator of Montera.  “Our students had a great time while participating in a healthy activity.”   Read More...

Ramona Communication Arts Academy Holds 2nd Annual WATCH D.O.G.S. Event

WATCH D.O.G.S.  encourages the presence of “positive male role models for the students, demonstrated by their presence stating that education is important.” Over 200 Ramona students and fathers attended our event this year.  Students enjoyed pizza and conversation throughout the evening.  Fathers and father figures of Ramona students were invited to volunteer their time at Ramona Academy at least one day this year.  It was a great event that will provide students with a positive example from the men of the Ramona community!

100 District Families Received A Bountiful Thanksgiving Feast

As an International Baccalaureate School, Bon View seeks to instill in our students a world view that encompasses the attitude of care and empathy for others. On November 22nd, we had the honor of hosting a very special event that embodied these ideals of care and empathy, the Viramontes Family’s Annual Thanksgiving Meal Gift. As coordinated by Bon View’s Outreach Consultant, Shawnna Viramontes, the event provided one hundred district families with a Thanksgiving meal, complete with all side dishes, dessert, beverages and a huge turkey. “This year we were blessed to be able to distribute meals to students attending five different OMSD schools: Bon View, Edison, Sultana, Euclid and Haynes,” shared Mrs. Viramontes.

OMSD's inaugural Rube Goldberg Challenge 

The pressure mounted as student ingenuity and creativity was on full display on Saturday, November 22nd for OMSD’s inaugural Rube Goldberg Challenge. The district event, modeled after the international Rube Goldberg Contest, challenged student teams from ten OMSD schools to design and engineer a machine that could erase a chalkboard (or whiteboard). A Rube Goldberg machine is a complicated contraption that uses a chain reaction to complete a simple task. Over 250 students participated from Oaks, De Anza, Haynes, Monte Vista, Mission, Sultana, Ramona, Vernon, Vineyard STEM, and Serrano. Cheers of excitement reverberated throughout Linda Vista as Sultana Elementary took home the top prize, the Rube Goldberg Champions Trophy. Serrano Middle School won the award for Best Teamwork and Oaks Middle School won for Most Creative. Many thanks and congratulations to all involved, we hope to see everyone again next year!

Middle and Elementary schools come together against bullying

The entire Vernon Middle School student body gathered on the field to express their feelings about bullying.  A special thank you to Montclair Police Department for flying overhead and taking the wonderful picture.   Ramona Academy has focused on one word this year: respect.  In the classroom and on the playground, respect has been a focal point for students and staff.  This word is reinforced through rules, incentives, and by ensuring that the entire school community promotes a respectful environment. Ramona stands for respect!
