Upper School Magazine, CTV,
and Dance Students Travel to NYC

In May, a select group of 7th and 8th grade students were invited to travel to New York City to learn more about their mastery areas of concentration. Journalism students in Conchita Magazine and CTV had the opportunity to tour the Columbia University School of Journalism and took time to visit several TV studios, including NBC Studios and CNN and have up-close encounters with individuals who help create the most watched news in the nation. They even experienced being in the news room both at NBC and CNN during breaking news!

Dance Mastery students took a variety of classes at Paul Taylor and Broadway Dance Center. They took a Fosse class, a Broadway class, and a Pascal Rioult class, among other activities.

Together, the students watched the Broadway musical, On Your Feet, toured Radio City Music Hall, took a Central Park bike tour and visited the Twin Towers Memorial. This was a fantastic experience for all the students involved!  See Pictures >

6th Grade Wordles
About Literature

Mrs. Santalo's 6th graders read The Breadwinner, a book about a young girl their age in Afghanistan, whose life is quite different from theirs. Mrs. Santalo challenged her class to ponder about that and practice being grateful for their many blessings. Half her class was asked to reflect on the protagonist of the novel and the other half to reflect on their lives. Then, they each created "wordles" on their reflections. Wordle is a toy for generating "word clouds" from text. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. Since CEA has so many gifted artists, it was a great way for them integrate their passion for art with literature and vocabulary.

Visual Arts Department Travels to Italy

This March, the Conchita Espinosa Visual Arts Department traveled to Italy for a cultural immersion educational experience. Educational travel broadens our awareness of others and sharpens self-awareness, as students have the chance to gather firsthand information about the world. Seeing different landscapes, experiencing the challenges of certain cultures, listening to the opinions of people in other countries provides a deeper level of mindfulness. Profound experiences give people a sense of place and purpose, and they cultivate lifelong values and priorities. Students had the chance to spend 10 days in Florence and Rome, and had day trips to Lucca, Pisa, Siena, and San Gimignano. In addition to the cultural activities, sightseeing, and museum tours, our young artists attended art and art restoration workshops throughout the trip and visited local art schools. Mrs. Vazquez and Mrs. Martinez worked with the students throughout the school year to prepare them for this experience. We are so proud to have been able to offer this experience to our young artists! Click to See Pictures >

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.
