Highlights of District 1 Faith Based School Adoption Initiative.
Through the initiative and leadership of District 1 School Board Member Dr. Steve Gallon III, District 1 has successfully established and implemented a Faith Based Adopt a School Initiative. This initiative is based on the belief that all community stakeholders must play a role in the education and success of our students.
Please take a look at some of the highlights from our Schools and Faith Based Groups in District 1. District 1 schools are on the move!

Islamic Center of Greater Miami and Lake Stevens Elementary
Bethel & Golden Glades Elementary
Love Fellowship, Clarendon Services & Bunche Park Elementary
2018 LFM Summer Education Camp at Love Fellowship Ministries church.
The three partners; Clarendon Services Incorporated, Love Fellowship Ministries and Bunche Park Elementary School; worked to provide a positive summer camp experience for the students and we think it was a success.
They were really proud of the fact that this year they were able to achieve their goal of producing a book for each child to demonstrate what they are capable of, and to lift their self-esteem. Their goal was to pollinate dreams, and they did. They are proud of their books. There were other achievements also.
Mrs. Aponte, principal, and her team at Bunche Park Elementary School (BPES) were very supportive & helpful. The reading and math specialists were also very helpful.
They had a great group of community & church volunteers who also contributed to the success of the program.
