Here is a review of some of the events, activities, and overall happenings from December 2012 until today.
December is normally a short enrichment month due to the two week winter break. However, we were able to squeeze in a field trip to enjoy lunch and a movie. The Dreamers with appropriate conduct grades were invited to see: The Hobbit an Unexpected Journey at the Sunset AMC theatres and then have burgers and fries at: The Shake Shack.
As the kids returned from Winter Break in January, IHAD Overtown began planning for our annual MLK Day of Service event. January 19th was a "Day On" as Dreamers reported to West Perrine Park joining hundreds of students, citizens, and agencies assist with a beautification projet. Dreamers swept the park for litter, helped plant, repainted, and spend the day doing something for someone else.
As we enter the month of February, Dreamers have already attended a college seminar at MDC's School of Justice and are preparing for our upcoming Men's College Basketball game (MDC vs. Brevard) field trip.
