History Day

Our 2019/20 History Day Team has done another outstanding job this year of developing an amazing presentation. Due to school closures in response to the Coronavirus, the LA County physical competition at San Gabriel High School on 3/14 has been cancelled. The Los Angeles County Office of Education are going to have schools submit their projects online and will notify of us the results at the end of March. We are so proud of our team, Mrs. Kloster, Cecilia Venegas, Salvador Batres, Angel Calderon and Joshua Polanco. They are awesome.
Please go to the Video link just below to see a video of their full performance. We wish them the best in the LA County Competition and then on to Sacramento for the State finals. GO DOLPHINS!!!

Del Mar ASB visits the Convalescent Home.

We are so proud of Mrs Kloster and our ASB class. On December 19th our class went next door to the convalescent home to visit with the patients and to bring some Holiday Spirit. Students visited with the staff and and patients and brought some hand made ornaments.
It was a great experience for everyone involved.

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 Students Attend Science Camp in Catalina

On October 25 -27, twenty-two Del Mar students and four staff members attended the Catalina Science Camp on Catalina Island. Students were exposed to activities and learning opportunities that they had previously not experienced. In addition to snorkeling, kayaking and hiking and learning about the Catalina and ocean environments, students attended classroom sessions on ocean biology, oceanography and how the oceans effect the world around us and others. For many students it was not only their first time being away from home, it was their first time truly experiencing the environment, outside of their daily community. It was an outstanding three days of fun and learning. It is truely "A Great Year to Be a Dolphin"!
