11 NuevaDigestCommunityNews Clubs

In the spirit of inclusivity and connectedness, several new clubs are starting up across disciplines and thematic areas at the upper school to provide a place for shared interests and dialogue. This semester, the new clubs include creative writing, chemistry, and masculinity.

10 MLK Assemmbly and Panel Hero 14 MLK Assemmbly and Panel IMG 0153Throughout February, Nueva celebrated Black History Month with a series of special assemblies, performances, and discussions focused on the rich contributions of African-Americans in our community and beyond.

The theme of our Black History Month celebration in Hillsborough has been The Radiant Child — inspired by a children's book about Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the best-known African-American contemporary artists, who discovered his extraordinary talent for painting as a youth.

At a special assembly on Friday, February 9, we celebrated radiance in our Nueva community. Students learned about the childhoods of notable African-Americans and their early journeys to identify their own talents, and their academic and creative passions.

10 MathCircle Math Circle 15Room 245 in the Writing Resource Center was packed to capacity on Saturday afternoon, February 10, for the inaugural Bay Meadows Math Circle. Students from Nueva and other Bay Area high schools, along with many parents, flocked into the classroom and clustered around the tables, settling in for one of the two 70-minute Introduction to Machine Learning sessions taught by Nueva computer science teachers Jen Selby and Carl Shan. It was the first time that computer science was featured as a topic at a Math Circle.

CMI 2 2Perhaps when you hear the word “auction" you think of a hushed room full of serious people holding paddles, bidding on mysterious artifacts. In true Nueva fashion, it should come to no surprise that the Annual Benefit Auction has transformed that model into an fun, inclusive, and community-driven fundraising event.

10 Physics Physics

Every February, the United States Association for Young Physicists (USAYPT) releases four physics problems for which high school students spend a year preparing solutions and then present at a tournament the following January. This year, for the first time, Nueva sent a team of four students — Peter A., Tobias B., Cameron W., and Andrew Z. — to compete against teams from twelve other schools across the U.S. and abroad.
