8th grade graduation 2018 2

On Friday, 86 eighth graders and their families gathered at Nueva's Hillsborough campus for one final celebration before advancing to high school (and beyond!).

The eighth-grade class of 2018 worked tirelessly to present, rhyme, and sing their appreciations of Nueva in 100 words or less. Together they reminisced over their completed STARPAP projects, painted exquisite literary memories of the Yosemite trip, and delivered clever, pithy speeches in true Nueva fashion.

Middle School Head Liza Raynal concluded her own 100-word address with, "Each student's speech will centuplicate the reasons why we are so proud to be the adults in their lives."

 

(Editor's Note: The above reflection is also exactly 100 words!)

10 Menuhin Menuhinlunch"When words divide us, music unites us.” A favorite saying of violin instructor Sin-Tung Chiu, who teaches his Menuhin-Dowling students to live by the values inherent in this aphorism. When asked about the most meaningful aspect of the Menuhin Program, eighth grader Audrey A. couldn’t choose just one.

“The teachers are incredible," she said. "My violin teacher (Sin-Tung Chiu) has taught me so many new things over the years, and I’ve improved as a musician so much through his coaching.”

Parents, family, friends, and faculty came together in the evenings over the last two weeks to attend culminations for each grade, reveling in the joy of inquiry and the pleasure of curiosity.

The 2017–18 Nueva athletics season came to a close Thursday night with a celebration of the year in sports, and a reflection of the growth and success of the athletics program over the past five years. In total, 34 athletes were recognized with All-League Team Awards across every sport at the Middle and Upper Schools, and five teams competed at the CCS level.

Nueva encourages students to explore their passions inside and outside the classroom, and we are pleased to share a collection of these achievements.
