Civics Mastery Halloween Costume Drive

For several years Civics Mastery has organized a costume drive for children who cannot afford Halloween costumes. This is done through Neighbors4Neighbors and the Food for Life Ministry. New or used costumes may be dropped off in your child's homeroom or in the bins in the Early Childhood and Main School building and will be collected and organized by our Civics Mastery. The last day to donate is Tuesday, October 18th. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Perez


International Day of Peace

September 21st was the U.N. International Day of Peace. Peace Day provides an opportunity for all of humanity to come together, in spirit and in action, to forward the ideals of and conditions for peace. At CEA, every class, from our youngest learners in K3 to our most mature in 8th grade, dedicated time this month to discussing these ideals and conditions for peace and to creating something in honor of a more peaceful world. read more student and faculty writings >


Why do we need an International Day of Peace?

I think we need an International Day of Peace because of how much hate there is in the world. We need this day to step back and look at the chaos going on around us that we can one day hopefully change. We need this day to reflect and to try and make a change with what's going on around the world. International Day of Peace is a day to recognize the discord in the world whether it be somebody bullying someone else or a full blown war between two countries. Countries around the world acknowledge this International Day of Peace hoping that people will hold the ideals of strength and peace close to their hearts. An example of a country that most definitely needs peace and strength is Venezuela. My grandma who is currently living in Caracas, Venezuela tells me stories of the once beautiful Venezuela that provided the essentials to a blissful life, but now she can't even leave her home in fear of getting mugged or kidnapped. We definitely need a International Day of Peace because the world must be made aware of the atrocities being committed and how we must come together to combat these horrible things with peace.

Dear CEA Family,

            The summer of 2016 has drawn to a close for us and what a wonderful one it was! At CEA we stayed busy the whole summer engaging in intensive artistic and academic programs, getting to know our new students, and preparing for a spectacular new year.  So, as summer has closed, we have opened our doors to the 2016-2017 school year prepared to embrace the joys and wonders of it all.

            We believe in giving our students the tools to enable them to live their best lives.  The scholastic preparation they receive, the knowledge of and participation in creative processes, the social skills, the self-assurance, the manners, the commitment to service, the capacity for empathy and compassion – all of these tools help them build a foundation for their lives and their happiness.

            The work we do is immeasurably rewarding, but we do not do it alone.  We know that  we are in partnership with you to achieve these goals.  We truly are a team.  But team is not just a group coming together to work for a common goal.  As a team, we are a group of people who trust each other because it is that trust that allows us to work together to achieve these goals.

            We are looking forward to a beautiful year as we work together to build a better world through the treasures of the children God has given us.

            As always, my door is open to you.  I love hearing from you.  If you have any questions, any doubts, any beautiful things to say, any suggestions, please email me at mzubietadiaz@conchitaespinosa.com.  When I hear from you, the school grows and our connection grows stronger. I look forward to hearing from you.

We hope we don't have to do this, but if we do need to close school for an emergency, if the Miami-Dade County Schools close due to hurricane or other inclement weather, Conchita Espinosa Academy will also close. We will notify the local radio and television stations. We will reopen when the Miami-Dade County Schools open or you will be notified by a Parents Partnership Association member via our telephone tree. We will also keep you updated via our social media channels.
