DFTF Trips 2For first-grade students, their sleepover in the Ballroom marks a rite of passage: an entire night spent apart from their parents. Similarly, the third-graders who spent a weekend at the Pie Ranch took the last steps in experiencing firsthand the “farm” element in the farm-to-table curriculum they pursued all year.

CN Robotics FIXEDFor three-and-half days in mid-April, members of the Upper School’s Bot Provoking team tested their robot against 400 other mechanical competitors and their teams of human developers at the FIRST Robotics Competition in Houston. The Nueva team entered the elimination round seeded 36th out of 67 teams in its division, and made it to the divisional quarter-finals, where it was knocked out by the team that went on to win the division.

FS MusicalLast week, we brought you a video teaser of the upper school’s musical, Urinetown, a dark comedy about a fascist, dystopian world so fraught with drought and corporate greed that everyone must pay to pee. This week, we take a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show and hear what the experience of participating in theater productions at Nueva has meant to students.

FS Kindergarten StudiesEach spring, Nueva’s Kindergarten classes embark on studies chosen by the close observation and inquiry of their students’ interests. This year, students in Laraine Ray’s class have chosen to research and explore the depths of the ocean, while Michelle Barreras’ kindergarteners have decided to study the wonders of space. While the studies seem literal worlds apart, the mirroring explorations have revealed many surprise parallels.

FS MusicalNext weekend, students at the Upper School will present Urinetown, a musical comedy about a dystopian world so tangled in bureaucracy and greed that every person must pay to use a restroom. The show is a satire of Broadway itself, with references to other famous shows like Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, and Les Misérables. In 2001, it received the Tony Award for Best Original Score.
