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
Press release from Ontario Police Department:
As part of April’s Distracted Driving Awareness Month campaign, Ontario police will be actively ticketing those texting or operating hand-held cell phones during the month of April. Drivers who break the law and place themselves and others in danger will be cited with no warnings.
The current minimum ticket cost is $159, with subsequent tickets costing at least $279. Last April, over 57,000 tickets were written statewide for texting and hand-held cell use. There were nearly 450,000 convictions in 2012. Whether it’s a ticket or a crash, as the campaign theme states, “It’s Not Worth It!” Distracted driving is a serious traffic safety concern that puts everyone on the road at risk.
In recent years, hundreds have been killed and thousands seriously injured in California as a result of collisions that involved at least one driver who was distracted. Nationally, an estimated 3,331 died in 2011.
As a result, law enforcement across the state, including the Ontario Police Department are increasingly cracking down on cell phone use and texting. This April will see over 225 local agencies plus the CHP conducting zero tolerance enforcements
