The partnership between parents, school, and our children builds a strong, supportive community. All parents at Omni Montessori School are members of the Parent Association (PA). Attend a meeting to share your skills and interests and to meet other families at Omni.
The Parent Association (PA) is a volunteer body which coordinates activities to strengthen the Omni community and provide enhancements to its classrooms. The PA relies on core values of the school – inclusiveness, community, and consensus – to create a working partnership between parents, faculty, and the student body. The PA seeks to provide all parents the opportunity to become involved and be part of the special traditions that make Omni vibrant and unique.
The PA oversees a number of school-wide celebrations, plans activities to help welcome new families, hosts community events that also generate funds for the classrooms, and provides support and appreciation to the teachers. Every year, the PA allocates a stipend to each classroom. Teachers use these supplemental funds to purchase special materials for their rooms or gardens, as well as for cultural enrichment projects such as field trips, artistic performances, and school-wide immersion projects.
