At "80s" Auction, Alum Reflects on Power of Nueva Education
Mitzi Mock, Digital Storyteller

 

Prince and Axl Rose. Scrunchies and crimped hair. A kaleidoscope of neon, sparkle, and rainbow Slinky toys. Last week’s Annual Benefit Auction, "Back to the 80s," was so rad even Marty McFly would travel Back to the Future just to be there! From totally outrageous costumes to student rock bands shredding on stage, check out highlights from all the action on our Facebook page.

One of the best parts of time travel? Looking back and knowing an amazing education led to an even brighter future. Auction attendees heard from Nueva alum Kimberly Preston ('09) and her mother Brenda, who shared their reflections on the power of a Nueva education — and the financial awards that made it possible for Kimberly to attend. Funds raised from the Annual Benefit Auction give gifted learners like Kimberly an opportunity to thrive at Nueva and beyond. Watch her story!

Nueva’s Spring Break Classes Beat Boredom

This year’s spring break presented unusual challenges for families across the nation and around the world, as parents simultaneously juggled working from home and homeschooling their children. The Nueva community hit the reset button as well, and quickly put a plan in place to offer a first-ever spring break program.

Teaching Art During Remote Learning

Art is one of the disciplines that most heavily relies on materials. Nueva art teachers, faced with this challenge, have created engaging art projects for our students to work on in this new learning environment.
