Letter to NEST+m Students and Families, Week of March 28, 2016

Dear NEST+m Students & Families,

Thank you for your active communication over the past week.

A reminder: The NEST+m Uniform is very much in place for students in Grades 3-8.

 DOE Surveys: Each spring the Department of Education asks Students and Families to complete an official Survey about their school experience. Families: For those who were unable to pick up your green survey envelope during parent-teacher conferences, they have been mailed home. Please complete your survey as soon as possible. Your voice matters. Surveys are due April 1st.

Congratulations: To NEST+m 12th grade student Michael Lee for being named NY 1 Scholar Athlete of the Week. See: “Fencing Champion Stays on Point.”



Looking Ahead:

  • ELA Testing, Grades 3-8, April 5-7
  • Mathematics Testing, Grades 3-8, April 13-15


The following attachments related to Grades 3-8 Testing have been previously distributed by Parent Coordinator Marcy Duran. So that we may ensure your receipt, please see:

  • State Test Parent Letter from Chancellor Fariña
  • State Test Parent Guide, Grades 3-8 State Test

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.
