10 2018 CC Trip Edits 13 2018 CC Trip Edits IMG 3029During the month of May, Nueva fifth- and sixth-grade students traveled east to immerse themselves in history and bring their respective year-long studies into real-world perspective.

Nueva's fifth-grade classes have been traveling to Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in southwestern Colorado for well over a decade. This trip allows students to walk in the shoes of both the Ancestral Puebloan people and the archaeologists still working to learn about their life and culture. The trip includes academics, adventure, and a multisensory immersion in a gorgeous landscape and rich cultural history. This year, the addition of a new year-long class called “Pueblo Time” — focused on content directly related the trip — brought a new level of engagement and depth to the experience.

Bluefire WinnersFour Nueva students were recently recognized for their creative writing achievement by the Leyla Beban Young Authors Foundation. For the past five years, the Foundation has run the "$1,000 for 1,000 Words Creative Writing Contest" that challenges students to write a piece of short fiction using exactly 1,000 words. Winning entries will be published in the annual literary journal Bluefire, by the Leyla Beban Young Authors Foundation. 

Both the foundation and the contest were created by Mark and Jessica Beban in honor of their daughter Leyla, who joined Nueva as a sixth grader and graduated from Nueva’s eighth grade in 2012. Leyla passed away on November 26, 2012, while riding her bike to school, when she struck and killed by a pickup truck.
