Ontario-Montclair School District held its first Poetry Day on March 30, at Linda Vista. Students were able to showcase their creative work on the stage, led by former OMSD student Brian Oliva as Master of Ceremonies.
Oliva currently teaches poetry at Azusa Pacific University, also brought his Poetry Team that supported the students and shared their poetry with district families.
More than 100 families attended to celebrate the students. There were also more than 1,000 student poems entered which were posted in the multi-purpose room at Linda Vista.
Molina Healthcare provided student prize bags for the poetry contest winners that included a $10 gift card to Barnes and Nobles. Barnes and Nobles also donated books for each of the 51 winners. Administrators Sam Sager and Misha Plummer helped organized the project
