“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”
– John Dewey
Schoolwide events are an important part of what makes The Nativity School experience so special. Not only are they educational, but they form the basis of community building by allowing all of us to celebrate the most important thing we have in common: the success and growth of our students. Some key events include:
Kick Off BBQ: Organized by our PTG, this event occurs in August before the school year begins and allows both new and veteran families to reconnect at the beginning of the year
Back To School Night: As the school year begins, this event is key to meeting teachers, understanding the grade level goals for the year and for signing up for the many volunteering opportunities both in the school and in various classrooms
Veterans Day Assembly: Honoring our veterans in assembly for Veterans Day, students recognize the veterans in our school and parish community and we also take the opportunity for our 8th grade students to interview veterans in conjunction with the 8th grade history and language arts programs.
Red Ribbon Week – Organized in conjunction with our PTG, Red Ribbon Week focuses on healthy choices, self confidence and self respect
Book Fair – Organized by our PTG, the annual Book Fair transforms our parish commons into a fantastic book store where students and parents can find varied books organized by subject, theme and grade level
Halloween Parade and Math Science Fair – Our Halloween parade allows our middle school students to host the creativity of our lower school students in a red carpet parade of costumes and fun, followed by a celebration of science and math with a fair of various stations organized by our PTG and staffed with parent volunteers
Cultural Day – One of our premier events, we transform the campus with the help of our PTG into a fantastic international destination, complete with food, demonstrations and activities! Past years have included Italy, South Africa, Ireland and the Philippines
