Nativity Prep would like to thank the Rotary Club of Del Mar and the Cathedral Catholic Rotaract Club (including NPA Alumna Denise) for spending a day painting the Nativity Prep campus on April 27th. A quote from Sherry Anderson, “Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.” Truer words were never spoken.

These Rotarians painted the front entryway of the school, the front office, the entire hallway, and our science room. The reaction from the students and teachers on the Monday following the event was also priceless.

Nativity Prep is home for our students for nine hours a day, 11 months a year, and thanks to these wonderful people, Nativity Prep is a bit more vibrant than before. Thank You!

May the joy of the Lords Resurrection be a source of hope and inspiration for you this Easter Season.

Our students put together some fantastic metaphor poems this week as part of a group process.

Excerpt from a poem called Freedom:

Freedom is an open window,
a door that just opened,
a open door waiting for you to go out,
A path pull of mysteries,
A wall of adventures yet to come.

This weekend, several of our students volunteered to help with the Ignatian Volunteer Corps- San Diego Evening of Gratitude Mass and Dinner.

We received a kind note from IVC's regional director, Margot Howard, expressing her thanks and sharing the comments received from the guests about our students. Our students were "professional, polite, gracious, hospitable, responsible, reliable, efficient and joyful."

The Ignatian Volunteer Corps (IVC) provides men and women, most age 50 or better, opportunities to serve others and to transform lives. IVC matches the talents of experienced volunteers with the greatest social needs of our time.

Thank you Ignatian Volunteer Corps for being a part of our community.

Recently, several of our students attended the Expanding Your Horizons STEM Conference at University of San Diego, an annual STEM conference for girls in grades 6-10, connecting 350-450 girls from around San Diego County with STEM professionals in the San Diego community. Each group of 15-20 girls is mentored by 2-3 female STEM undergraduate students, providing the girls with additional STEM-based interactions. The goal is to increase the girls’ interest in STEM careers by providing exciting and engaging hands-on learning experiences.

Celebrating National Pi Day

Today in math class, our students learned about the infinite number Pi, which appears in patterns all throughout our world. After a brief overview by Ms. Odioso and Mrs. Trojnar, the students formed teams of two to measure the circumference and diameter of circular objects around campus.

Divide any circle’s circumference by its diameter; the answer (whether for a pie plate or a planet) is always approximately 3.14, a number we represent with the Greek letter π. Thank you to Mrs. Mary Meigs for bringing in pies for the students to measure and enjoy as a treat after the class exercise.
