Pontchartrain Elementary Honored By OMNI Bank for “Making The Grade”

Omni Bank recently named Pontchartrain Elementary School one of its “Making the Grade” winners for 2009, recognizing the school for its KidSense Playground, a play area for special-needs students. A first-of-its-kind at any public school, the playground helps over-stimulated children work out their energy, regain their focus and work smarter back in the classroom. Making the Grade is a nationally recognized program that highlights successful educational projects in schools in Jefferson, Orleans, St. Tammany and St. John the Baptist parishes. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, top left, is a partner in the OMNI Bank program. He is shown with Pontchartrain Elementary Principal Kim Thomas and several students from the school. The school received $2000 as part of the recognition.
