The Nueva Parents Association (NPA) is active in the daily life of the school, seeking to support the continuing development of a healthy and meaningful learning community within a context of respect, honesty, openness and inclusiveness. Composed of parents of current students in prekindergarten through eighth grade, the NPA brings together a diverse range of parent talent and provides an avenue for parents to produce major events that benefit the entire community.
The NPA is a highly effective organizing body, working directly with the head of school and members of the administrative team, and provides a sounding board for parent concerns, issues, and strategic planning. Events that the NPA works on include: Tea on the Plaza, Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day, Book Fair, STEM Fair, Staff Appreciation Week, and Art Showcase.
"Our parents are nothing short of extraordinary! Their daily contributions make so many programs and events possible. They make our teachers feel valued and respected for the gifts they give our children, they bring to life many programs and events, and build community through their passion for Nueva. Whether it is helping out in the classroom, volunteering at our STEM Fair, taking part in our marvelous Benefit Auction, making costumes, leading a Lit Club, providing dinner to appreciate faculty members, adding knowledge and expertise to a committee or task force, or one of the other thousands of ways to be involved, Nueva parents are an essential element of our success. They are a vital part of our community, as their special gifts and unique talents enrich our community every day, in so many ways. For that we are truly grateful!"
