Bring the whole family for an evening of fun and learning at a one of a kind Nixon event: Information Science & Engineering Night!

After 10 weeks of studying communication, measurement, and representation of “information”, Stanford students from the Information Theory Class, taught by Nixon parent Dr. Tsachy Weismann, will share their findings with the Nixon community through interactive games, performances, activities and more! Come to explore the beauty and utility of information science and engineering, in a way that is fun for the entire family.

Nixon Ice Skating Night, Dec 14th, 5:30-7:30 pm

Come have fun with us, during the annual Nixon Ice Skating Night at Winter Lodge!

Go to Nixon’s Spirit Shop to purchase tickets online.

Tickets ($22 pre-purchase, $25 at the door) already include ice skate rental, and are non-refundable. All children must be with an adult, but only those on the ice require a ticket. Spectators are free!

Please, to save you time:

  • Fill out the required waiver before arrival (look for it in a Friday folder). The waiver must be done by the parent/guardian!
    So, if someone besides a parent/guardian is taking your child to the event, you must fill out the waiver in advance for them to be able to skate.
  • Bring the completed WAIVER AND A PRINTOUT of your ONLINE TICKET RECEIPT for quicker entry. If you’re unable to purchase online, bring a check to school and fill out a sign-up sheet, available now at Becky’s desk. Turn in the completed sheet, waiver, and check to Becky.

⛑Remember, the ice is hard, and your child’s brain is soft. Bike helmets strongly recommended!

Come have a 🍕 pizza 🍕 dinner and a blast with your friends. See you on the 24th!
