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 and 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 in the Upper Elementary include:

-Raising nearly $1,400 for WildAid
