August 23, 2017 – Creative Connections Arts Academy

20 7th and 8th graders fromCreative Connections Arts Academytook a 7-day trip to the East Coast last June.

Their teacher, Tina Hughes-Corben, wrote us “as a visual and performing arts based charter school, our mission includes exposing our students to as much of the arts as possible. This trip is one of the traditional ways in which we can do so. The educational opportunities during the week abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many of our students! To see a live Broadway production and visit all of the historical monuments are lifelong memories and treasures they can refer to the rest of their lives. This year we had some students drop out of the trip during the final months which raised the per person cost for the rest of the travelers. DREAM’s support helped offset that increase. We love this opportunity every other year and DREAM helps make that happen for us!”
Hurrah to the dedicated staff and chaperones that made this trip happen!
