A MESSAGE FROM HS PRINCIPAL PETIT

Dear Parents,

I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work with your students during this year, most recently as the Interim Principal of the High School. This year brought on many changes and challenges to the Nido community and our High School. Through it all, I have been impressed time and again with the strength of our community of students, staff and parents who have come together to support each other and move forward.

This semester has had many highlights for our students — the faculty and staff of the High School are extremely proud of them. They have done so much:

  • Impressing us with Beauty & the Beast, on the stage with drama, dance, and music, and in the IB Art Exhibition
  • Representing Nido with pride on the courts, fields, or in the pools throughout Chile and South America
  • Hosting student-run events like Empredil, the Hackathon, and Nido TED Talks
  • Volunteering with clubs and raising money through movie nights or the famous Nido Yard Sales
  • Completed Extended Essays, CAS projects, IB Exams
  • Been accepted to colleges of their choice all round the world
  • Giving their best in class every day and learning more about themselves, their strengths and passions along the way.

As a community we have grown so much this year. Now more than ever, it is critical that we work together — students, parents, faculty, and school — to guide our young adults, take care of each other, and live the values that our School holds dear — generosity, happiness, ingenuity, engagement, and adaptability. Anthony Dent, High School English Teacher, shared with our students at graduation his discoveries about how to choose a life of happiness. As he closed his remarks at graduation, he emphasized: "Love your neighbor because it is both a guarantee of your own happiness and the path to a blessed life." Let us all take a moment to consider how we can best reflect this in all of our words and deeds.

We will miss those students, families, and staff that are leaving and wish them the best. Enjoy your winter break and time with your families. We are looking forward to another amazing school year together.


Sincerely,

Paul

WELCOME BACK FROM HS PRINCIPAL MCKENNA

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I love the start of school. It brings with it a new sense of possibility, excitement, and challenge.

WELCOME BACK FROM MS PRINCIPAL SHAWE

I trust that your child enjoyed the winter break – traveling, reading (I hope!), sleeping a bit later – and that she/he returned home today excited about the start of the new school year.

WELCOME BACK FROM ES PRINCIPAL JAMES

I hope your vacations were restorative and included plenty of family time and positive memories. One of my favorite parts about a new school year, is hearing all of the stories from students as I walk the playground and through classrooms.

WELCOME BACK FROM EYS PRINCIPAL COTA

One of my favorite aspects of working within the Early Years School (EYS) is being able welcome the new and returning students to the EYS. It is such a joy to see the excitement and sometimes the apprehensive looks upon their faces as they enter their classrooms filled with new friends, teachers and environments.
