  • A New Mural For Our School!
     
    Students in 2nd and 3rd grade are busy exploring the art of mosaic mural-making! Local artist Fernando Hernandez is helping to teach us all about it. We are investigating the theme of resilience to communicate our messages through this art form. Our pieces will become a part of an installation at our school!

  • Dance! Break the Chain!
     
    New Highland Academy students use what they have learned about dance as a means to convey a message. Students in the classes of Mr. Carter, Ms. Rojas, and Ms. Dordell performed a dance to express saying "NO!" to violence. The dancers worked hard on learning the dance, "Break the Chain," a dance that is performed in over 207 countries and choreographed by Debbie Allen. On Valentine's Day dancers and their families joined 1 Billion Rising in dancing and speaking against violence in their community and the world.
     
    Great job, New Highlanders!

  • Peace! Love! Books! Students March to End Gun Violence

    Recent gun violence in our school's neighborhood has made the normally routine walking field trip to our local public library unsafe. Third grade students at New Highland Academy and their supporters voiced their opinions by engaging in a protest march from our school to the library, where they held a rally. Check out the story here.
