In EMPIRE OF LIGHT, Sam Mendes provides us with a great reminder of the inspirational, meaningful, and transformational experience of a magical film enjoyed in the company of others in a beautiful cinema!
While some films appeal more to one type of audience than another, in his latest masterpiece, Steven Spielberg presents a story and a film that so beautifully deals with so many universal subjects - that it is sure to touch something in everyone.

The power of the arts to transport us to different times and places is never more important or needed than today, when we are all so necessarily focused on challenging and troubling events throughout our nation and the world.
GHS AVID Class of 2022 has 100% college acceptance. They are making tough college decision based on financial aid packages that are being offered. AVID SUCCESS programming assists AVID students in college with Good Money Habits, Mentoring and Jobs & Professional Tools to add to the skills they are learning in the AVID classes.
Have you ever wondered how and why the arts are a universal language that all human beings share, no matter their culture? It has to do with the make-up of our human brain and the chemistry within it. As an actor turned drama therapist and today, the executive director of the Greens at Greenwich, Maria Scaros has studied the healing power of the arts for over 30 years. She has witnessed how visual art speaks to us non-verbally. In the theater and storytelling, we gasp at catastrophe, weep with star crossed lovers and applaud opportunity. Music conjures memories and dance is often an aphrodisiac. We are moved for good reason and it is not accidental.
The best part of my job is connecting with students and working with great educators across the Greenwich Public Schools. Because of my work, I met Gardy, Domna, Noemy, Bleona, Grace, Alison, Armin and more and have been able to assist them with AVID SUCCESS Mentors, Scholarships and Jobs and Professional Skills and Tuning In To Music lessons. I have learned a lot from them and they have enriched my experience as the Executive Director of the Greenwich Alliance for Education.
