Nativity Prep Alumna Invites College Professor to Speak to Middle School Students

Thanks to an invitation from Nativity Prep Academy class of ‘13 alumna, Jacqui, the middle school students at Nativity Prep were treated to a presentation by children’s author, Kevin Gerard. His book series, Diego’s Dragon, is about an 11-year-old sixth grade boy who wins a school writing competition and is awarded a statue of a dragon. But the boy quickly realizes the statue is actually alive, and needs his guidance.

When Jacqui, a sophomore at Cal State San Marcos, learned that her statistics professor moonlighted as an author of fictional middle school books, she invited him to come address the students at Nativity Prep. Kevin shared, “I was blown away that a middle school would remain connected to its alumni in high school and college”.

Nativity Prep is grateful for the lasting relationships we build with students like Jacqui.

Thanks for making this happen Jacqui!

Muchas felicidades Dany !!

Our 6th grade class has been learning about the style of pointillism in art class. These photos show the representation of Georges Seurat's piece entitled, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte."

For this project, each student was in charge of one panel, and they combined all of their panels to create this masterpiece.
