"Books Not Bullets"

On Wednesday March 14th, Del Mar students and staff participated in the national "#Enough" walkout to protest gun violence. Our students used their First Amendment rights to stand beside students on a national level to express concern and frustration regarding school mass shootings. Students and staff walked around Smith Park and back to school in exactly 17 minutes honoring the 17 victims of the shooting in Parkland Florida.

Renowned Story Teller Diane Ferlatte with Eric Pearson perform at Del Mar

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.

Meet DMHS graduate Clarissa Marquez!

We would like to introduce you to 2011 DMHS graduate, Ms. Clarissa Marquez. Clarissa is currently a political science major who has been accepted to UCLA and is applying to schools such as Brown University, The University of Chicago and the Claremont Colleges. Clarissa has done work for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and will go on to become a Lawyer. Clarissa is a great example for our students, especially our female students, that you can accomplish great things if you have a dream and are willing to work for it. We hope that she will come back to Del Mar and speak to inspire all of our students to greater things.
Congratulations Clarissa, we are very proud of you!
