Community Service

Giving back to the community is woven into the fabric of the Omni experience. The children get involved in service projects in the classroom, such as the Upper Elementary's relationship with Mel’s Diner. Throughout the year the children prepare monthly meals that feed the neediest members of the Charlotte community. The children are also encouraged to organize their own service projects, which often stem from lessons they are doing in the classroom. If a particular lesson or field of study leads the students to discover a community need that they feel passionate about addressing, they are given the opportunity to practice their leadership by organizing a campaign to help that cause. Recent examples of this community service are a shoe drive, used battery collection and a change collection for Hurricane Dorian victims. 

Other times the Omni community as a whole participates in helping those in need.  This past spring while Omni students learned remotely due to the Covid-19 shutdown, an Omni parent provided fabric and families pitched in to help medical workers by making masks. Many families also donated food and supplies to the organization Bright Blessings who distributed them to local families impacted by school closures and job loss.
