Miami Kids Publisher’s Notes

Welcome to August and the time of year when our kids are getting
ready to go back to school. We hope that all of your kids are having a
great Summer even with the difficulties of living with social distancing.
I want to congratulate all of you parents for your great job! It is not
easy to work managing all the tasks at home and also if you go to the
office or are working from home while keeping our kids entertained.
I’m sure that all these challenges and new routines will help us to make
our families stronger and also learn more about each other.
In this issue, we are proud to have Miami Superintendent Alberto
Carvalho on the cover page with an inspiring interview on pages 20 and
21. We know how difficult it is for him and all of the Miami-
 Dade School Board members to make difficult decisions under these
unpredictable cases of COVID-19. We recognize all his hard work in
keeping our students focused on their education.  
Don’t miss checking out our After-School Guide sponsored by Zoo
Miami and bakerly with many activities to do with the entire family
after school hours, including weekends on page 22. Also, on page 28 a
Schools Guide sponsored by SuperCuts with many options of schools in
Miami and Broward.

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month and we are
here to support many parents that have been or are going through this
trauma in their lives. Don’t miss on page 17 a very emotive article
written by Marta, founder of Sofia’s Hope Organization.
I want to thank all of our readers and followers that participated in our
Anniversary Celebration sponsored by Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. We
were so happy to visit your neighborhoods during the month of June
with All Around Entertainment, and to bring happiness to many families

with Sharky, Safari Sam, Super Why and Woofter, our friends from PBS
Kids. Take a look at the pictures on pages 34 & 35.
MKM wants to wish all the students, teachers, and parents a safe back
to school!   Don’t miss visiting us on August 8th  at our drive-thru Back to
School Celebration at Shops at Merrick Park. We will give away free
backpacks with goodies to the cars driving in at San Lorenzo Avenue!
We hope to see you there!
