OMA (Opening Minds through the Arts) Program is offered at White Elementary to K-2 students! 

OMA is an innovative approach to learning provided by the district. Our K-2 students will work with Mrs. Chang for 30 minutes, twice a week during the first semester of this school year. Mrs.Chang will collaborate with classroom teachers and the principal, Mr. Ruiz, to design unique and appropriate lesson plans for each class. Our students will be exposed to creative music activities, integrating classroom topics while learning basic music concepts and theory. This program aims to enhance students’ perceptual development and creative thinking skills, which will lead to improving their listening skills, problem-solving skills, and comprehensive skills.
