On Tuesday February 13th, Storyteller Diane Ferlatte performed for the students at Del Mar. Ms. Ferlatte, accompanied musically by Mr. Pearson, told stories of United States history that involved African American slaves and their significant contributions to our countries development and establishment. Her "We Were There", "stories about ordinary African Americans who did extraordinary things" performance was enlightening and informative to our students and staff. With period music from Mr. Pearson, it was a great experience for our students.
We thank The San Gabriel Education Foundation and Mrs. Anguili and The Music Center of LA County for bringing Ms. Ferlatte and Mr. Pearson to our campus. It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Congratulations to our new Governing Board Student Representative, Bella Luevano. On Tuesday January 16th, Bella was sworn in by Governing Board President Mrs. Cristina Alvarado.
