Books for Breakfast

Student Council hosted Books for Breakfast this morning with Mrs. Bosque as our guest reader. She read a book titled, "The Gingerbread Man" by Jim Aylesworth. The children were mesmerized by her fun and animated storytelling. She brought the book to life, and gave each child a gingerbread cut-out to take home and decorate. She also passed out her favorite gingerbread cookie recipe so that they could bake their own gingerbread man, and warned them all to be careful when they opened their oven doors, "for gingerbread men have been known to run away!" Thank you, Mrs. Bosque for waking up extra early and sharing this fun story with us. Student Council thanks you for spreading your love of reading and Christmas cheer! See More >

4th Grade Virtual Field Trip

Mrs. Jeria's 4th grade class went on a virtual field trip to the Mission San Luis, where they were able to learn about the customs and daily life of Apalachee Indians and the Spanish villages. This was a wonderful example of technology working for man and using technology to enhance our children's learning! See Pictures >

Ashley Lapadula

On December 5th, Emmy-nominated journalist with Univision, Ashley Lapadula (CEA c/o 2005) gave an excellent presentation to the CEA Upper School journalism students in Conchita Magazine and CTV. She spoke about the value of being bilingual in today's professional environment, education, curiosity, resilience, and her personal journalism journey.

We hope we don't have to do this, but if we do need to close school for an emergency, if the Miami-Dade County Schools close due to hurricane or other inclement weather, Conchita Espinosa Academy will also close. We will notify the local radio and television stations. We will reopen when the Miami-Dade County Schools open or you will be notified by a Parents Partnership Association member via our telephone tree. We will also keep you updated via our social media channels.
