Congratulations to our Student of the Week for November 18-22, Angel Hernandez.
Angel was recognized by his teachers for many things, his work habits, his willingness to help others, his direction for himself and the change into the person he has become. When Angel first came to Del Mar, he was a student who was unhappy, difficult to deal with and quite often angry. His change came slowly but Angel has decided that he wants more for himself than either he or life was giving him. He has decided to take ownership and control of how his life is going. He is awesome.
Congratulations Angel, we are VERY proud of you.
Since August, Del Mar has had a percussion class for our students to learn percussion rhythms and songs. Thanks to the work of Mrs. Masri, Mrs. Kloster and Ms. Villasenor, who found the Theater of the Hearts program this summer. Theatre of the Hearts is a non-profit organization committed to bringing the arts to schools throughout Southern California. Program Director Ms. Hanah Davenport found the perfect teacher in Mr. Ishmeal Peredia. He is a Grammy nominated artist who immediately connected to our students and was able to help our students to learn and have a new appreciation for music. Thank you to everyone who helped bring this program to our students this year. It is truly "A Great Year to Be a Dolphin"!!
