85th Anniversary: Kick-Off

In 2019 Nido de Aguilas is celebrating its 85th anniversary year. The High School newspaper, Eagles Manifesto, published a series of articles in honor of Nido's birthday, including this coverage of the 85th Anniversary Kick-Off Event and an introduction to this special edition issue.


85TH ANNIVERSARY OVERVIEW

By Nelia Perry, High School Student

When I arrived at Nido five years ago, I remember being thrown immediately into the festivities of the schools 80th birthday celebration. Looking back to that first glimpse of what it meant to be a student at Nido, one member of the large and ever-growing community, I am proud to call it my home. At Friday's kickoff to the 85th-anniversary celebrations, the pride is even greater. Nido is a community where the faculty and staff facilitate meaningful discussions that challenge students to become critical thinkers and articulate communicators, and where students care for one another and support each other on a daily basis. It's reasons like these that make the school something worth celebrating, so join us in all of this year's festivities surrounding Nido's birthday.


As many of you know, High School and Middle School students and teachers ended classes at 2:30 on Friday in order to wish Nido a Happy Birthday! The event included musical performances from the amazing Tri-M, a very competitive Nido Trivia game sponsored by Mr. Franco, and Happy Birthday cupcakes for all. Additionally, Nido's timeline—starting from the small cabin with three students in 1934 to today's 62-hectare campus with 1863 students—and a display of all of the school's headmasters, adorned International Park. Students were entertained with the flipping men on stilts and magician who wandered around during the event.


Lastly, the whole event culminated in one big Happy Birthday song to Nido! This event would not have been possible without the help of so many in the Nido community. The Booster Club, Admissions and Communications Offices, janitorial staff, and performers all played a major part in Friday's celebrations. Most importantly, Fran Barreda, a member of the communications team, spearheaded the whole event! Lastly, thank you to everyone for making this special day possible by bringing a positive attitude and lots of energy. Let's continue with the festivities and pride throughout the year!


This publication of the Eagle Manifesto includes pieces that capture the medley of voices in the Nido community. There is a piece by fourth grader Beatriz, allowing us to better understand what it means to be a member of the Nido community from the perspective of the younger generations. There is a piece by high schooler Ben that shows what it is like to have grown up in the Nido community. Of course, there is an interview with Mr.Franco, one of Nido's living legends. And lastly, there is a note from Nido's Headmaster, David Perry, as he celebrates Nido's history.


Third Grade Ecosystems Project Based Learning

The project was integrated through reading, writing, art, and science which challenged students to answer, how can we as environmental stewards advocate for and help protect the biodiversity in ecosystems?
