How the three Seasons of Engagement guide the OES community to grow in our power for good.
Classroom learning alongside real-world impact that helps students realize their power for good as citizens of local and global communities
How do I use my skills, knowledge, passions, and convictions to make change?
Students at OES experience Community Engagement in three ways:
- integrated into classroom curricula
- embedded in school-wide ongoing commitments and Seasons
- experienced through initiatives focused on impact in our broader community
The school year is broken into three seasons: the Season of Light, Season of Action, and Season of Commitment. By coming together school-wide in these shared seasons, students, faculty, and families can take collective steps toward justice. Each season provides opportunities for different styles of engagement, whether it’s through raising awareness, building relationships, taking direct action, or committing classroom learning to ongoing impact in the community.
