Soy Bilingüe Festival 2018,

N.E.W. Academy of Science and Arts School, Los Angeles, California, United States N.E.W. Academy of Science and Arts School, Los Angeles, California, United States

  • About the event

    Encompassing our values and showcasing who we are at NEW Academy of Science and Arts, the Soy Bilingüe Festival was proposed and inaugurated last year, with the following main objectives:  Educate the community on the importance of speaking more than one language and address NEW Academy’s commitment to prepare global citizens of this 21st century global economy.  Featured in this culminating event are parent workshops, speeches from prominent educators and community leaders, reading activities, student work exhibitions, student artistic performances, local traditional music and dance groups, and informational booths on the topics of education and community resources.  This year we are also featuring a bilingual education expert panel! 

    With an expected audience of 500+ families, the 2018 Soy Bilingüe Festival, offered at no cost to the community, is scheduled for Saturday, May 12th.  It will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 303 S. Loma Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90017.

    Why should you sponsor?

    We believe that the Soy Bilingüe Festival has become an integral part of our educational program, as it brings valuable experiences for our school AND the broader community.  Most importantly, it instills in our youth a love of learning, a sense of community, pride in who they are, and a vision for who they will become.

    We hope that you consider our request for support of this valuable project that looks to enrich our local community with knowledge and resources in benefit of their children, themselves, their community, and the world.

    NEW Academy of Science and Arts (NASA) is a TK-5 public charter school located in the Westlake Pico-Union area of vibrant Los Angeles.  Comprised of predominantly Mexican and Central American families, in a community identified by poverty and struggling students, NASA staff strives to deliver a rigorous academic program, enriched with culturally-relevant instruction as well as extracurricular activities that empower students at personal, artistic, academic, and social levels.  

    Ever engaged with families and the students’ home culture, NASA has a strong and unique home-school-community connection.  NASA’s Language Academy provides a valuable opportunity for students to acquire bilingual/biliterate skills in both English and Spanish, giving students a broader path for cross-cultural communication and interaction, as well as a tool to stay better connected with their Latin American roots.  

    Teachers, administrators, and support staff are passionate educators who go above and beyond, maintaining effective and empathetic relationships with their students and their families in order to better personalize the learning environment.  It is common to see staff members organizing and/or running extracurricular activities designed for the benefit of students, their families and the community.  Among these are sports teams, dance and music clubs, science nights, parent workshops, tree planting and other community events.  Additionally, stemmed from its belief in legacy, commitment to prepare college-ready students, and strong sense of community, NASA offers a unique alumni scholarship program, funded mainly by events put on by the NASA staff.

    NASA believes in the capabilities of its students, is committed to their success, and encourages them to dream BIG.
