13 Graduation runninggrads“What if Victor Frankenstein had gone to Nueva?”

Graduation speaker Lucy W. posed this question to the audience at Nueva’s 2018 graduation ceremony, the culmination of a week of celebratory activities that began with the Lifer’s Dinner on Monday, June 4, and ended on Sunday, June 10, with commencement on Nueva’s Hillsborough campus. Lucy’s reference to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was also an allusion to one of the seminal readings in Nueva’s ninth-grade English curriculum, a reading experience shared by nearly all graduating students.

Nueva's fifth-grade classes have been traveling to Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in southwestern Colorado for well over a decade. This trip allows students to walk in the shoes of both the Ancestral Puebloan people and the archaeologists still working to learn about their life and culture. The trip includes academics, adventure, and a multisensory immersion in a gorgeous landscape and rich cultural history. This year, the addition of a new year-long class called “Pueblo Time” — focused on content directly related the trip — brought a new level of engagement and depth to the experience.
