Yesterday, September 21, was International Peace Day. What if we spent two minutes a day thinking about and talking about creating peace – beginning with peace with ourselves and our immediate community? http://www.peacecast.tv is a site that began broadcasting peace related arts projects (songs, dances, spoken word, etc.) yesterday and will continue through Monday, September 22 – 48 hours of peace. Take a moment and see if there’s something you can share. How do you encourage peace in your classroom? All faiths and cultures speak to peace. So should we.
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.
