CN Tea Cafe DSC02329 HERO 1920px


Amid warm smiles, abundant breakfast, and beautiful music, Tea on the Plaza was a morning of renewed community. Everywhere you looked, old friends were getting reacquainted and extending their hands to welcome new families.

On the Café Courtyard, student musicians Jackson G., Gracie F., Anisha K., Luca L., Abi W., Riley S., Riyana S., and Lucie L. serenaded guests as they arrived. Parents were welcomed back to school by heartfelt speeches from Head of School Diane Rosenberg, Board of Trustees Vice Chair Gerald Risk, Interim Lower School Head Megan Terra, and Nueva Parents Association (NPA) Co-President Arvind Sharma.

Parent participation is essential to Nueva’s success. During Tea, the beloved first day of school tradition, parents had the chance to dive in, to ask questions face to face in this inviting atmosphere, and to get acquainted with the many programs and events made possible by our vibrant community members.

Nueva invites parents to follow their passions, to participate in programs, to work on committees, and to support events that spark their excitement. In this way they come to truly understand their child(ren)’s Nueva experience, model learning, involvement, and generosity, get to know one another, and enrich our school with their gifts in so many ways. And what could be more fun than making new friends while working together towards shared objectives?CN Tea Signing Up DSC02328 1920px

“Our involvement matters to Nueva. Each of us is at Nueva because we believe it will provide our children with an excellent education. That excellence is the result of the efforts of those who came before us — administration, faculty, staff, and parents. With our involvement we continue the tradition of building Nueva through our contributions.”

Arvind Sharma, Co-President of the Nueva Parents Association
