NELA Student Showcase

Nueva Esperanza Leadership Academy (NELA) hosted our 2nd trimester showcase this month!  Each student prepared tri-fold boards demonstrating an individualized and project-based learning approach and highlighting some of their favorite work.  From lego robotics, to pancake samples, to artwork and essay writing, the gym was full of joy, creativity, and conversation.  As the choir sang and the dance team performed, the audience enjoyed some amazing homemade tamales!  And the sales booth was popular – students sold many of their plant seedlings, hand-crafted jewelry, and homemade salsas. Thank you to all the friends and families of Vista Hermosa and Broetje Orchards who took their lunch hour to join us in celebrating these bright young students!
