Welcome Back, Nueva!
Mitzi Mock, Digital Storyteller


Welcome back, Nueva! Over the last few days, we’ve welcomed new faces, a new building, and a new school year. Our Upper School students ushered in the fall semester with camping retreats, paddling canoes and bonding over campfires. Middle School students “broke the ice” with advisory games during the Middle School “Meet and Greet” day. At the Lower School, kindergarten students received new magnifying glasses, the first of many tools to support a lifelong journey as “learning detectives.” We put together a little video to celebrate these special beginnings. The fun is just getting started!
