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.”

Corona Elementary School hosted its 7th Annual College Day on November 2nd, 2012. The chill in the air couldn’t dampen the spirit of the Kindergarten through 6th grade students who cheered and waved pom-poms in excitement for this event. With university banners flying and everyone wearing college shirts to show their school pride, Corona School was host to parents and a large turnout of community leaders, all to emphasize Corona’s focus of promoting a collegebound culture.
Assistant Superintendent of Instruction for the Chaffey Joint Union High School District, Tim Ward, as well as Chaffey High School Principal, Dawn Buboltz, were present to share words of encouragement to the Corona students. “These are my future students, and I’m glad to participate in this great event,” shared Ms. Buboltz.
Ontario Montclair School District Board Member Kristen Brake OMSD’s Executive Director of Student and Family Support Services, Hector Macias, and several other district administrators were also on hand to inspire the students. Several Corona students also shared their thoughts on college plans. Kindergarten student Nicholas stood in front of the assembly to declare, “Do you know where I’m going to go in 2025? I’m going to college because I have a love for learning. So lookout college, here I come!”
While parents attended a workshop to learn about college requirements and costs, 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 allow students to see the futures that they too could have. Students were engaged and very thoughtful in their questions to the wide variety of professionals and college students who were here for the day. 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.”
“This is one of the most important events we host each year that highlights our purpose at Corona,” remarked Dr. Marco Villegas, Principal of Corona School. “This year is the first year for Corona as part of the Elementary AVID program whereby we are adding to the strategies already in place to prepare Corona students to get the most out of learning. One of our goals at Corona School has always been to foster a lifelong commitment to higher education. We believe that plan begins here, and it is important for our students to hear personal stories from people like you see here today who have that same vision.”

“Are you all ready to have some fun with family reading night? Remember that to be a star you have to read each night. A small book here, a big book there, the adventure is never dull , you see them everywhere.” These were the words that the CAT and the Hat used to open the yearly event. Amidst a full MPR, the students listened to the clever antics of Dr. Seuss’ most famous creation as he inspired students and parents to read every day.
Family reading night has become one of Corona’s Elementary schools most popular evening events. It is a night where teachers of all grade levels, provide students and parents with valuable workshops that involve learning, literacy and life’s lessons. Presentations included craft projects, improving reading comprehension, story reading and retelling. Corona teachers planned activities that were engaging and educational. One workshop that taught students and parents the importance of reading directional text, was very popular, as students had to correctly follow the sequential steps of a recipe in order to make a delicious treat!
This year’s reading event was especially exciting, as the families got to participate in a scavenger hunt as they visited each classroom to reach the ultimate prize, which was to have fun with reading. At the start of the event each student received a scavenger hunt sheet that they took with them to each classroom that they visited. As they completed each activity, they were able to get a stamp on their sheet in hopes of collecting enough stamps in order to get their names entered into a raffle at the end of the night.
In order to further spread the love of reading, students also were able to participate in a school-wide book exchange. Students brought in their gently used books and were able to exchange them for books that were new to them. Many parents thought that this was one of the best features of the night, commenting, “This is a great idea! My kids get to take some new books home tonight that we can read together!” The PTO parents started the evening by selling refreshments for the families, and even sponsoring many of the prizes that were raffled off.
It is wonderful to see so many families and students attend these workshops designed to help our students become better readers and better students. Events such as this one illustrate to all of us how vibrant our community is and demonstrate the commitment that our Corona team has for improving student learning.
