Achim Academy Students Perform In Pesach Drama

South-Florida-logo

The Achim Academy Center for Education in North Miami Beach uses many unique approaches to teach its special students, and for Pesach a dramatic production in six scenes planted the important messages of the Torah in young minds.

Achim Academy students hold model Seder.

The students learned the Torah lessons during the days leading up to Pesach, and then learned and rehearsed the six scenes of the production created by their teacher, Rabbi Avrohom Bukspan. Tall stuffed animals became ferocious beasts with students “roaring,” chemistry lessons turned water into red “blood,” and matzah was broken with well-learned karate moves.

AACE school students had a special show at the school for parents, siblings and friends. The model Seder instilled confidence and a sense of accomplishment in youngsters along with the lessons learned.

Achim Academy Center for Education is an ESE school for children with emotional and learning disabilities and for children who are gifted or may have dual exceptionalities. Established in 1999 and has four divisions: the day school, a gifted cohort, an out-of-school program and a summer camp.

Applications are now being accepted for the summer camp, which begins July 2, and for the day school and gifted cohort for the 2012-2013 school year, which begins August 4. There are a limited number of scholarships available for either on a first come-first serve basis. The deadline for Florida McKay Scholarship applications and registration is Monday, July 2.

Application forms and additional information are available on the school’s website, www.aaceschool.org, or by calling 305-945-7443.
