To reward the Dreamers who are doing academically well and to welcome the Winter Break, Dreamers attended a men's basketball game at Barry University on Saturday, December 10 2011. The Dreamers have already traveled to Barry University for a college tour, so most were very familiar with the campus. Unlike a college tour, which is more academically driven, this field trip was more recreational. It allowed Dreamers to relax from the regular hustle and bustle of high school, as well as spend time with their mentors, who were kind enough to attend the game as well!
Although the Buccaneers suffered a lost against St. Thomas University (67-70), the game was very exciting, especially the last half. The half time performance was also great: competitive jump rope routines performed by elementary and middle school students. They were super talented!
It was a nice Saturday. Thank you to all the mentors who attended!
