4th Grade Visits St. Augustine and Kennedy Space Center

In conjunction with their studies of Florida history, 4th Grade traveled to the historic city of St. Augustine, Florida. This annual field trip was an excellent opportunity for students to experience what they've been reading and learning about. The Old Florida Museum hosted a re-enactment of what life was like in an Indian Village, a Spanish Village, a Pioneer Village and on board a ship. Playing games students of long ago played, writing with quill and ink, grinding corn, making candles, boring holes for pegs - they experience so many things to excite a lesson in history. A visit to the lighthouse, a stroll through the Old Fort, a drink from the Fountain of Youth, and what overnight field trip would be complete without a ghost tour!

Kennedy Space Center

This year, they stayed an extra day in order to visit the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. It was a life-changing experience to see NASA's primary launch center of human spaceflight. Students Students and parents enjoyed their time in St. Augustine and Cape Canaveral tremendously, as they saw history come to life. See Pictures >

Read Across America

Did you know that only 1 in every 300 children own a book at home?

CEA will be celebrating its 2nd Annual Read Across America along with Read to Learn Books for Free. Last year, we collected 2,000 books for our community's children.
From February 2nd through March 3rd, we will be collecting gently used children's books to donate to our community's children. We would like this year to be as successful as last year's book donation. Our school will be collecting gently used books for babies through 2nd graders. We will be collecting books until the first week of March.
You will find our book drop bin outside the Alicia Espinosa Library or your child can give their books to their homeroom teacher. Thank you for your participation for your support to children's literacy. Together, we can change these statistics and grow our community of readers, who will be our future leaders!

Conchita Espinosa -Trip to A Noise Within Theatre from Invisible Harness on Vimeo.

Theatre students and students who excel in English Literature in 5th grade and up will travel to Pasadena, California in to visit and study theatre at A Noise Within (ANW), a classical theatre repertory company in Pasadena, California founded in 1992 by CEA graduate, Julia Rodriguez-Elliott (c/o 1974) and her husband, Geoff Elliott. Since its inauguration, A Noise Within has evolved from being a small neighborhood theatre company to becoming one of the most distinguished theatre companies in the Southern California area-- consistently raising the bar on how great classical theatre can be.

At A Noise Within, theatre students will participate in intensive workshops with ANW´s educational department, as well as with professional actors and ANW Director Julia Rodriguez-Elliott. The workshops will center around Shakespeare´s Henry V, during which they will dive into text, work on understanding and translating Shakespearean language, and act out scenes, as well as participate in improvisation classes, sword-fighting, and more! They will explore what occurs behind the scenes in a professional theatre, learning about lighting, costume design, directing, preparing a set, and the many other aspects that go into creating a professional production.
