Flourishing Garden and Greenhouse
A couple of years ago the Texas Department of Agriculture generously helped our schools to purchase a greenhouse for each of our campuses. Our students have learned the cycle of life for a plant and how the hot, El Paso weather can effect plants. Below are a few pictures to show how, despite the challenging weather our gardens are flourishing.

EPSMF Visits Da Vinci
EPSMF- El Paso Society for Musicians of the Future visited the Da Vinci School for the Arts and Sciences as part of their community outreach and leadership program. This year’s presentation included international harpist, Grace Cloutier, from Hartford Connecticut, international flutist, Haley Rempel of Winnepeg, Canada, and educator and trombonist, Ross Brownlee of Winnipeg, Canada. Both Ms. Cloutier and Ms. Rempel joined EPSMF following their performances at Carnegie Hall in June. The presenters also included young musicians who participate in the EPSMF programs: 13 year old Jia Li (Janice) Diau, winner of the 2014 Competition for Young Musicians on piano; Alexandria Snyder, fourth place competition winner on clarinet, Isaac Rojas, Instruments for Young Lives award recipient on bass clarinet, and accoustic guitarists Cruz Lujan, former competition finalist, and Nico Cooper, volunteer. Both perform as the two-man Fragile Balance with original music. The purpose of EPSMF outreach and leadership programs is to open minds to the benefits and power of music, especially classical music. Each musician represents an excellence in music and academia that places them in the community as mentors and role models. EPSMF musicians reach out to all ages from young to elderly to inspire through their gifts. More about EPSMF at www.epsmf.org
