Congratulations to our Student of the Week for December 2-6, Cecilia Venegas.
Cecilia was recognized by her teachers for so many reasons we can’t begin to list them all here. Cecilia could be our Student of the Week every week. She came to us at Del Mar as a student who was shy and quiet and looking to find herself. Since coming she has bloomed into the most awesome student and person you could imagine. She is still shy and reserved but if we only knew then what she would become now. She is involved in many things at our school. She is our Student Representative to the Governing Board, she is on our History Day Team, she is a Peer Helper and she has been in ASB. Cecilia is the first one to offer help to students who are struggling in any class she can. She helps teachers, administrators, parents and anyone or anything that needs help.
Cecilia is one of our top Dolphins ever, and we love her so much!
Congratulations Cecilia, we are VERY proud of you.

Del Mar Percussion Class

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"!!

Del Mar Welcomes Author Daniel Acosta

On September 26, we welcomed local author Daniel Acosta who came to talk to the students about San Gabriel in the 1970s and his book, Iron River. He discussed goal setting and choosing a path for life that makes you happy and productive despite the hardships and detractors who don’t want to see you succeed. An important lesson for our students.
Mr Acosta grew up in San Gabriel and taught for many years at Mark Keppel High School. Mr. Acosta is a part of our partnership with the San Gabriel Library and Mrs Fiona Reimers and her Adult 101 program. We are thankful that Mr. Acosta was able to share his life and his book with our students. Not coincidentally, his son Dante is a proud graduate of Del Mar.
We thank Mrs. Reimers for bringing Mr. Acosta to our students today.
