The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005, (Pub. L. 108-447) requires educational institutions that receive Federal funds to hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17 of each year.
Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is a federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution. It is observed on September 17th, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.
Schools are required to observe Constitution Day with educational programming or activities for students and staff on September 17th. If September 17th falls on the weekend or a holiday, schools can celebrate the week before or the week after.
Omega Studios’ School will organize and execute at least one educational programming activity each year designed to enhance student and staff awareness of the signing of the constitution. If September 17th falls on a day the school is not open, activities will be planned for the preceding or following week.
Students and staff are asked to join in all planned Constitution Day and Citizenship Day activities. If you have ideas for Constitution Day activities you would like to see Omega sponsor, please contact the Director of Marketing, Nicholas Springer at (301)230-9100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
