Now in its third year as an official student publication, Nueva’s student-run Journal of Literature and the Arts, affectionately known by its staff as “Lit Mag,” is gearing up for its spring issue, which will be published in June.

The staff of the magazine, made up of students in all four grades at the Upper School, has begun the process of publicizing the journal’s open submission period, gathering student writing and visual art for consideration by the curation and copyediting boards.

Over the last two weeks, twenty-five Nueva students in grades 3–8 participated in the preliminaries of the National Geographic Bee, an annual competition organized by the National Geographic Society.

In December 2017, Chris, the shop manager & I-Lab engineer, met with the Los Angeles chapter of GoBabyGo! — a University of Delaware-based program dedicated to mobilizing young children with cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone, and posture affecting more than 200,000 children each year, and there is no known cure. Chris brought her inspiration to Nueva and recently led a team of middle school students in the design, construction, and delivery of the school’s first car to a GoBabyGo! family.

Working individually and in groups, students in kindergarten through fourth grade were in full mid-week stride as they tackled new challenges, put finishing touches on their creations, and shared their learning with teachers and classmates.
