2008 - 2009 Projects

  1. Due to the mission and strategic initiatives of all the partnership schools, the topic of “Creating an inclusive community through understanding our differences and celebrating our diversity” was chosen this year.
  2. To highlight this topic, three Community Conversations will be hosted by Partnership Organizations and Schools on this topic.
  3. A keynote presentation will be held to culminate these discussions in our community. The greater Miami Shores and Miami Dade County community will be invited.

To highlight this topic, this year’s keynote speakers will be:
