Middle School STEAM Students create "Game-On" Challenge
Middle School STEAM students created original video games and invited volunteers from other mastery programs to come and try them out. In order to participate, the student had to spend the entire mastery period in STEAM, playing and rating each game.
3rd Grade Biographies. CEA 3rd graders have been studying different genres in literature. In February, they focused on biographies. The children were able to choose a book of their choice from the "Who Was, I am" series. At the end, they came to school dressed as their "person" and were interviewed with a series of questions. The children walked down a red carpet and were able to form a human timeline to give them perspective as to what happened when. see pictures >

CEA Cultural Immersion Trip to Spain:
CEA is planning a student cultural immersion trip to Spain from March 11-21st for select students who participate in Spanish dance and soccer. Students will have the opportunity to visit Madrid and Seville.
We are busy arranging great classes and workshops for our dancers, which will challenge them to really grow and expand their knowledge of Spanish dance. We are also arranging for contemporary dance classes to expand their repertoire as dancers and challenge their bodies in different ways. They will be attending performances in which they will be able to more deeply grasp and understand the subtleties and meaning of the dance and experience it on a more emotional and profound level, thus eventually being able to transfer that knowledge into their own performances.
We are also on board planning training sessions, clinics, and activities for our soccer players in one of the soccer capitals of the world! Players will be drilling and practicing with the best of the best in Madrid, including the coaches of Real Madrid FC, and Seville to improve their skills and develop a better understanding of the game. We plan on all attending a soccer match together, in addition to the cultural activities we will enjoy together as a group.

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.
