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 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"!

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.

Field trip to Moorpark College Animal Training Zoo

On Wednesday September 18th, Del Mar students took a field trip to Moorpark College to visit their animal training zoo. Students received a "back stage" tour of the facilities and were able to interact with the college students who are in the program. The Moorpark program is the only one of its kind in the United States and students come from around the world to participate in and receive training certification from this program. We love for our students to see the facilities and hear about the program and possibly spark an interest in a career field they may not have known existed. Thank you to Mrs. Masri and our Del Mar staff for setting this trip up and making it a huge success.

Congratulations Student of the Week

Congratulations to Student of the Week Bailey Lang.
Bailey was awarded SOW for the week of September 30 - October 4. Bailey’s teachers praised her for her determination, work ethic and drive to make things productive. As many of our students do, Bailey deals with many things outside of the schools gates. She is able to come to school and make school her priority while she is here. She is hard working, kind and is an example to her classmates. Bailey is a great example of what our Del Mar family is all about.
Congrats Bailey, we are very proud of you!!
