Congratulations to Student of the Week – Jose Aviles!

Congratulations to Jose Aviles for being our Student of the Week for May 7th-14th!
Jojo was praised by teachers and staff for continuously doing work and turning in assignments on Google Classroom. Jose has also been active in our weekly Trauma-Informed trainings, Student of the Week assemblies, and ASB Zoom meetings. In the beginning, it took some time for Jose to realize that he had it in him to achieve what he has so far. There has been a significant improvement this past year. He is stepping it up and is one of our model students right now. We are so proud of you, Jojo!

Student of The Week

Congratulations to our Student of The Week for March 9-13, Elijah Romero. Elijah was recognized by his teachers for his consistent positive work ethic and behaviors. He came to Del Mar not knowing anyone and has done a great job of integrating himself into our school family. Elijah plays on our athletic teams, went to Catalina and participates in all of our trips. At 6'6"inches he is our tallest Dolphin. One of the highlights of the year was to see Elijah squeeze into a kayak with another student and learn to paddle and maneuver the kayak out into the open ocean waters. Something he had never done before. He also climbed the steepest peak with his classmates and made it to the top of the hill, something he did not think he could do. Elijah is one of our Del Mar success stories!!
Congrats Elijah, we are proud of you!!
