On Friday, February 17, as part of a series of events across all three divisions, Social Justice and Equity associate teacher Alison Williams helped to coordinate a powerful assembly in Hillsborough featuring students, parents, and staff members.

1st grade auction gift 1000px

Every year, students across divisions take part in the creation of gifts for Nueva’s annual auction. While the primary purpose of these gifts is to raise funds for student financial aid and teachers’ professional development, the value of these gifts starts with the rich learning experiences that go into the making of each and every project.
