2014 Beat the Odds Scholarship Winner
From the news release (click picture to right for video): "Monica Chica is an amazing young woman. She was born and raised in El Salvador. Just two years ago, when she was fifteen years old, Monica arrived to USA, and didn't know a word of English. Not only did she learn a new language in a new school in a new country, her first year she moved from English language learner into regular classes then honors and AP classes, skipped a grade and played a varsity sport she'd never played before. And that's not all. Monica has had to endure poverty, the loss of her old life in El Salvador and separation from her best friend, her mother. With wisdom far beyond her years, Monica says, "The most important lesson I've learned is that being happy is not about having with you what you loved in the past, but learning to love what you have in the present."

Springbrook's Latin Dance Team
Dear Community Members, Parents, and friends of Springbrook High School:
Greetings from the Springbrook High School's Latin Dance Team! This academic year will be our second year participating in the Annual MCPS Latin Dance Competition at Strathmore, Montgomery County's premier Latin dance competition where 10 MCPS high schools compete in different categories of Latin musical styles. Our students are working very hard to return to Strathmore and prove how much progress they've made since last year's competition. And, we need your support!
Unfortunately, the competition is taking place on November 24th, 2014 and we do not have the required funds to send our student fully prepared to compete and put their best "foot" forward. Our students need costumes and accessories in order to compete and look their best.
Our goal is to fundraise $4,000 by November 1st, 2014 and your contributions would make a true difference in the lives of these 17 young men and women as they aim to win. Our dancers face great many challenges daily and their commitment to this competition has inspired many other students here at Springbrook High School.
In order to donate, please visit: http://osp.osmsinc.com/montgomeryMD
Search for: Latin dance team: Revolución Latina. Donation amount: $15.00
You can donate as many times as you'd like!
Thank you very much in advance for your contribution! Remember every little bit counts! We hope to see you at Strathmore in November to support our blue devils!
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me should you have any questions or want to know more about our team.
