Letter to NEST+m Students & Families, from Mark Berkowitz, October 1, 2018

Dear NEST+m Students and Families,

Congratulations to NEST+m’s students, teachers and families.

According to Niche.com, publisher of this September 26th article, NYC’s Best Public Elementary Schools: See 2019 Rankings,  “The highest-ranking city school was New Explorations Into Science, Technology & Math on the Lower East Side, a K-12 school for “gifted and talented” students that landed at No. 21 in the metropolitan area.”

As a K-12 school community, each of us creates NEST+m each day. Families: Your partnership is essential to our success.

Thank you for joining us during last week’s Curriculum Night and PTA Back to School Celebration.

As we enter this first week of October, please note that our Fall Tours for prospective Middle Grades and Upper Grades students and families begin this week. For more information about NEST+m’s admissions process for prospective families (who are not presently part of the NEST+m community), please direct prospective families to the admissions tab at NESTmk12.net

Upper Grades and Middle Grades students who would like to assist during Tours should speak with their guidance counselor this week.

This week NEST+m’s 12th grade students will explore the beautiful Hudson River Valley as they participate in a grade-wide bonding trip to the Storm King Arts Center. Our 6th and 7th grade students will participate in a fabulous Fall Field Day at East River Park.

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.


Mark Berkowitz
