November is Homeless Awareness Month.

CEA's Community Creations Mastery and Student Council just concluded a Teddy Bear Drive and Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit Miami Rescue Mission. We are so thankful to everyone who donated teddy bears and food. What's most special, is that the students in Community Creations actually stitched and stuffed their their own bears to give to the less fortunate. Thank you Mrs. Jeria, Mrs. Bosque and Mrs. Mendez for your kind hearts and loving dedication! See Pictures >

Books for Breakfast

Student Council hosted its first Books for Breakfast of the school year! We kicked it off with Mrs. Munar, who read one of her favorite tales, The Elves and the Shoemaker, which promotes messages of kindness and giving. She also read two cute and funny poems from the book, Food Fight. Her love of books and literature was evident in the beautiful way she read to our students. A big "thank-you" to Mrs. Munar for coming extra early to share this special time with all of us!

Music Masteries Attend New World Symphony Concert

See Pictures >

The CEA Music Makers and Senior Music Ensemble attended the New World Symphony Concert for Kids on November 5th. The NWS Fellows transported the audience to a galaxy far, far away in celebration of the 40th anniversary of George Lucas' Star Wars. Conductor Dean Whiteside lead famous themes for Yoda, Princess Leia and Darth Vader. The storytelling continued with Sergei Prokofiev's musical version of feuding families from Shakespeare's classic and the march of Camille Saint-Saëns' French regiment. It was a wonderful experience for our musicians and a great introduction to orchestral music for our youngest MusicMakers.

Our CEA Spirit Night at Florida International University was a great success! Thank you to all who came! Together, we not only raised $3,770 that will go toward our new track, but we had an AWESOME time together! Our flag football and soccer players got to run through the tunnel and interact with the FIU Football players and our Senior Dance Mastery did an incredible job performing in the pre-game show!

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.
