Nueva Community Welcomes More Than 650 Guests for Grandparents’ & Special Friends’ Day
Rachel Freeman, Editorial Manager


Thanksgiving week was special for the Nueva community, as students welcomed more than 650 guests to both campuses for Nueva's annual Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day celebrations.

Special guests were treated to campus tours, musical performances, student and faculty presentations, and, of course, time for grandparents and special friends to attend classes with their Nueva students.

At the Upper School on Tuesday, guests heard presentations from students about their Quest projects and several other interdisciplinary projects happening around school. Monica Hartman, grandmother of freshman Darrow, commented, “I want to go back to high school!”

On Tuesday afternoon (Middle School) and Wednesday morning (Lower School) in Hillsborough, students and teachers welcomed visitors into their classrooms, where they shared past work and current projects with their guests. 

While the days were cold and rainy, it was a heartwarming celebration for all in attendance. Head of School Diane Rosenberg warmly told Lower School guests, “Grandparents and other special friends have always played an important role for children, expanding their realm of love and trust beyond parents and siblings.”
