The Aventura Marketing Council’s (AMC) award-winning program for at-risk students has a very special tradition: each year the final program of the first semester is a field trip to the New World School of the Arts arranged by Dean Daniel Lewis, Dean of the School of Dance. For one hour, over 100 students from the AMC’s eight Dade Partner schools were mesmerized by the dancing and singing performed by the New World students.
Eileen Glastein of Bnai Zion Foundation, AMC Education Committee Chairman, said, “This is always one of the favorite programs for our students, who range from elementary through high school. To see their peers in such a professional light encourages them to believe in their own dreams!”
The Student Connection is composed of at-risk students from Krop Senior High, Alonzo & Tracy Mourning Sr. High, North Miami Beach Sr. High, Highland Oaks Middle, Ojus Elementary, David Lawrence, Jr., K – 8 Center, Aventura Waterways K – 8 Center and Greynolds Park Elementary. Sponsors of the Student Connection program are Miami-Dade Comm. Sally Heyman and the Marlins Community Foundation.
