e Association of Poinciana Village’s partnership with Orlando Premier Music
Instruction (OPMI) and their summer camp program was a huge success this
year, providing fun and educational programs for all the Poinciana Campers.
This program let Mothers and Fathers go off to work this summer knowing
that their child would have a wonderfully structured day with wonderful Camp
Counselors and fantastic programs. Talking to some of the parents I heard “Oh
my! My child had so much fun he didn’t want to leave when I came to pick him
up”. Another stated, “For the first time I had no trouble getting my little girl to
bed, at first I thought she was just tired from her full busy day at camp, but she
corrected me and said she just wanted to hurry up and sleep so it would be
morning and she could go back to camp!”
This is the second year that OPMI has had a summer camp for the children of
Poinciana. Both years they were full to capacity, with a waiting list. The children
had to choose at the beginning of the week what enrichment they wanted for
the week. Some of their choices were instruments, singing, drama, cooking, or
arts and crafts. On Friday’s they either performed or showcased what they had
accomplished that week. They also used the pool every day and had some free
time to just play and be kids. What great memories were made and shared
during these summer months. New friendships were made and we hope that they
continue to grow and flourish.
We are happy to announce that we are talking to OPMI about offering and after
school program for Poinciana Families. We hope to announce this in the very
near future.
APV Summer Camp Comes To A Close

INTER HAVEN- In an effort to reduce
absenteeism at Polk Schools, Polk Vision
created a “Strive for Less Than 5” attendance
video campaign. The video will debut in
August through websites and social media
encouraging parents to make sure their
child miss no more than ve days of school.
Polk County Public Schools Superintendent
Jacqueline Byrd and Polk County Sheriff
Grady Judd participated in the campaign.
Filming of the video took place last week at
Garner Elementary in Winter Haven. Polk
Vision is making a special push to have the
video shown during School Orientation Day
Aug. 8. The campaign is an initiative of Polk
Vision’s Attendance Team. The Attendance
Team is committed to promoting awareness
of the importance of school attendance
within the School District and the community.
Chronic absence is problematic among
students living in poverty who are most likely
to have poor attendance over multiple years
and least likely to have resources to make up
for the lost time in the classroom. In addition
to the video, Polk Vision is already working
on a pilot attendance program at three
schools: Grif n Elementary in Lakeland, Eagle
Lake Elementary and Palmetto Elementary
in Poinciana. For more information about
