YogArt Needs Volunteers Dec. 9th

Presentation1

DASH is proud to work in partnership with YogArt at Art Basel!

Five student volunteers are needed to work the event – students will receive community service hours.

We also need one parent volunteer to oversee the students in simple activities such as setting-up yoga mats. Our elected Lead Student Volunteer will be present to oversee as well.

The event is on Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 8:00 AM until 12:30 PM, at the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) – 1103 Biscayne Boulevard – Miami, FL 33132

This is an easy and fun volunteer activity!
Thank you for your support!

DASH Freshman Carlos Cepeda has won the Spanish Poetry and Narrative Award presented by the Miami-Dade County School’s Department of Bilingual Education and World Languages.

Out of 500 entries, Carlos’ passionate and heartfelt poem titled “Pasados sus 95,” inspired by his grandmother’s passing, won him him an award this year.

He was recognized for his achievement and received his prize on April 22nd, 2017 at the Centro Cultural Español in Miami accompanied by his parents Mr. and Mrs. Cepeda          (pictured above) as well as his  grandparents, and Assistant Principal, Georgina Palomo.

A gifted and creative writer, Carlos has steadily polished his skills during his time in AP Spanish this past year. He is also a member of the National Spanish Honor Society.

Yet, when asked what he would like his readers to remember after reading his poem, all he wanted was for them to “Always value the life of the ones that you love, especially the older people in your life.”

Congratulations to Carlos Cepeda for winning in the Spanish Poetry and Narrative Award Contest!
