Congratulations to our students for giving Mr. D’Aoust 3 more…and then some!

School Board Candidates Forum
Sponsored by the Omni PTSA and the Palm Beach Council of PTA/PTSA


Question 1: Please list your top two priorities and articulate with specificity why you believe they are a priority and how you plan to address them.

District 7 candidates: Dr. Debra Robinson and Thomas Hawkins

District 6 candidates: Ron Young, Dean Grossman and Marcia Andrews

District 4 candidates: Marilyn Schiavo, John McGovern, Lowell Levine,
Anne Kanjian and Jennifer Prior Brown

District 3 candidates: John Adams, Karen Brill, Bill Graham, Steven Ledewitz and Tom Whatley
District 2 candidates: Chuck Shaw and Jean Dowling
Question for District 3 candidates:
Diane Ravitch, nationally recognized educator and former architect and now critic of No Child Left Behind, was recently in Palm Beach County. She believes one of the most significant problems with public school is the misuse of tests, not tests themselves. She believes tests provide too narrow a gauge for promoting students, assessing teachers or grading schools, all of which require a wider lens. Do you agree or disagree with her statement and why?

District 3 candidates: John Adams, Karen Brill, Bill Graham, Steven Ledewitz and Tom Whatley
Question for District 4 candidates: In recent years, our school district has started educating more students with disabilities in general education classrooms. Do you support this move towards inclusion? Would you support the inclusion of students with significant cognitive disabilities in general education classes?

Omni PTSA voted best PSTA in the county for the sixth year in a row!

PTSA Awards Recognition

Omni’s PTSA was selected the best PTSA in Palm Beach County six years in a row (2005-2010). Our PTSA spearheaded a fundraising drive for Haitian relief, after an earthquake struck the small island country in January. Our school was the first to react in Palm Beach County and the PTSA, students and Omni community raised more than $7,500 for Doctors Without Borders. Blessings in a Backpack gathered food items to help poor and hungry elementary students in Boca Raton. Every Penny Counts collected pennies and loose change for the homeless in Palm Beach County. PTSA served as an advocate for children, inviting the Florida Office of the Attorney General to talk to students about cyber-safety. PTSA fundraisers generously supported Omni’s clubs and exploratory courses. PTSA provided school planners for all incoming sixth graders. PTSA strongly opposed Senate Bill 6, legislation which many considered hostile to the teaching profession and public education. PTSA fundraisers and projects help Omni’s students, teachers and our surrounding community, striving to help make school and the world a better and kinder place.

Do The Write Thing: National Campaign To Stop Violence

The Do the Write Thing Challenge provides middle school students with an opportunity to examine the impact of violence on their lives and communicate in writing what they can personally do to stop violence.

The program involves a classroom discussion and a “Challenge” to answer three questions in written form:

How has youth violence affected my life?
What are the causes of youth violence?
What can I do to reduce youth violence?
