Nido students, parents, the NPA, and staff are sponsoring 38 students from the Recaredo Vigueras Araneda School in Santa Juana and the República de Panamá School in Tomé, which were affected by the fires over the summer.
After a whirlwind of a Week Without Walls program last week, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from students, teachers, and the parent community about the impactful, engaging, and fun learning opportunities the students experienced last week.

This summer, Nido hosted English Summer Town, a program that offers free professional development for public school teachers in Chile who teach English. Now in its seventh year, this initiative is done in partnership with the Ministerio de Educación's Centro de Perfeccionamiento, Experimentación e Investigaciones Pedagógicas(CPEIP) and Inglés Abre Puertas (PIAP).
During November, 5th graders learned about ancient civilizations in their Social Study classes, one of which was the Mayan Civilization. Through Nido’s Elementary School Counselor, Ms. Ana Maria, students got in touch with a Mayan community in Cobá, located in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. Our students needed to understand that the people, traditions, and languages they are learning about are still alive today!
