The term “STEM” is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  These educational lessons introduce students to important material that is needed for their near future!  We can’t wait to see what these innovative thinkers will grow up to be!

Corona College Day

 

Corona Elementary School hosted its 8th Annual College Day on October 11th, 2013.  While college fight songs were playing and pom-poms were waving, Corona School was host to parents and community leaders, all to emphasize Corona’s college bound culture.  “This event highlights our college focus here at Corona,” remarked Sal Flores, Principal of Corona School.  “Each teacher has chosen a university to highlight in the classroom, and students are learning chants or cheers for that school.  Today they are all wearing their college logos and colors which they will now wear every Monday to start each week with our college focus.  Every day, college banners are displayed on the doors to remind our students of the goal.  We don’t want them to just dream of college – we want them planning now to make sure it happens.”

 

Corona was honored to have participants such as the District 4 Supervisor, Gary Ovitt, of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors.  As a former student and educator in Ontario, Mr. Ovitt enthusiastically shared the importance of using the skills learned here to reach your highest potential and then return to your own community to share what a college education can offer.

 

Ontario Montclair School District Superintendent Dr. James Hammond, as well as OMSD’s Assistant Superintendent, Karla Wells, were also on hand to inspire and encourage the students.  Several Corona students took turns in front of the crowd to share their personal plans for college and beyond.    

 

While parents attended a workshop to learn about high school subject requirements for California State University and University of California acceptance, visiting guests went to every classroom on the Corona campus in order to make personal visits with the students.  Graduate students, medical personnel, law enforcement officials, and school district personnel were all on hand to share what their respective college experiences were like.  In many cases, the visitors were paired up with a class that has adopted their alma mater in order to bring firsthand knowledge of the campus to the students.  Corona’s Outreach Consultant, Judy Gooden commented, “We are so thankful to all our participants who made this such a special day for our students.  We want Corona students to be inspired and motivated to begin planning now for their future college endeavors.”

Corona Elementary School Playground Used to Host Local Event

 

On Saturday, March 30th, Corona School’s playground was transformed into a sea of colorful eggs as part of a community Easter event.  OneLite Ministries sponsored the day that so many of our Corona students are still talking about.  Hundreds of local residents participated in the opportunity to receive free resources as well as play games, hunt for Easter eggs, and enjoy the beautiful spring weather.  Started in their living room 7 years ago, Nichole Montanez and her husband, Lucky, created  OneLite as a non-profit community outreach organization to reach out to lower income neighborhoods to bring hope and provide families with goods and

services such as food, clothing, shoes, and haircuts. The OneLite organization partners with local churches, community organizations, and businesses to collect resources and distribute them at no cost to the community.  During events such as the one held on Corona’s playground, different support stations are set up in which families are able to take advantage of the services available.

 

“Every so often we would take our own kids down Holt Ave. in Ontario to pass out lunches to the homeless, and every time we did this we felt that our 10 lunches were just not enough.  It's funny because now we feed 2,000 people at every event, and we still think it's not enough,” says Nichole.  “We now have different churches and organizations like PepsiCo, Frito Lay Walmart, and Converse wanting to partner with us to improve the quality of life of the people living in our surrounding cities.”

 

Corona Principal, Sal Flores, commented, “It is clear that the Montanez family loves what they do, and we are very appreciative of the support they have shown to our community of families.”
