Dear CEA Family,

What a blessing Family Affair was! Alumni from our 1st graduating class in 1973 to the Class of 2019 shared special memories and the love they have in their hearts and appreciation they have for the well-rounded education they received and how it has served them as adults. They enjoyed seeing the school and were impressed with our student ambassadors who shared their love for the school. It was wonderful to see students who left 46 years ago and those who left 5 months ago share that same essence of appreciation they have for all they received here.

As we walked our beautiful grounds, we were fully aware of the tremendous gift we receive each year from the dedicated parents who so lovingly produce this day. Blanca Sordo-Martinez, and her assistant Eileen Press, did an exceptional job of organizing and letting people do what they do best. The food was delicious, the games a huge hit, and the atmosphere of relaxed fun was spread throughout every inch of our campus. Thank you to every single one of you who made this day such a success.
There were many moments today that were special "Conchita" moments, but one that will remain with me happened at the T-ball game. It was their last game, but the excitement of parents and players alike was like it was new. T-ball players are young. They're learning the rules. They're gaining the skills, and here they get to be who they are. As one of the players, a little girl, was coming to bat, she flew like a butterfly to the T. There, Coach Danny helped her put on her helmet, adjusted the T, and guided her hands to hold the bat with the tender care that honored her as a butterfly and a ball player. And the assistant coaches who were cheering them on, encouraging them, and coaching them at their bases were the perfect examples of gentleness and strength - all of them were Conchita alum. Where else but Conchita?

There are no words to truly express the gratitude we feel for what you do to make a day like today happen. But more than that, there are no words for the gratitude we feel that we work in partnership to educate your greatest treasures - your children. Thank you for the day, the love, the partnership, and the support and trust that makes CEA so unique.
Many blessings for a Happy Thanksgiving and a joyous holiday season.

New World School of the Arts High School Jazz Ensemble Performs at CEA

One of the highlights of October was the New World School of the Arts High School Jazz Ensemble concert at CEA! The NWSA Jazz Ensemble, featuring CEA alumna, Katherine Marino (c/o 2016) on the piano, performed for the 3rd through 8th grade student body and did a wonderful job! After the concert, the Senior Music Mastery had lunch with the NWSA ensemble.

It was a treat for our students to watch NWSA students perform and learn about jazz music, and for our Senior Music Mastery to have the chance to interact with the NWSA students and learn about how they can continue to grow in the arts!  See Pictures >

Thank You to the Pouza Family

Thank you to Robert Pouza, father of Riannen (7th Grade) and Rowen (Class of '17), for the new water mister next to the track. Mr. Pouza built this mister at home and donated it to CEA for our runners to feel a bit more refreshed as they run in this hot Miami weather! It makes a huge difference in our students' education to have dedicated, cooperative and committed parents who actively participate in the CEA community! It is thanks to our amazing parents that the CEA continues to be "mejor, mejor y mejor!" See Pictures >

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.
