Letter to NEST+m Students & Families, from Mark Berkowitz, October 8, 2018

Dear NEST+m Students and Families,

I am hoping you’ve had a wonderful extended weekend.

In our week ahead:

  • Wednesday October 10th – 11th grade students will take the PSAT
  • Wednesday October 10th – 9th grade students will engage in a grade-wide bonding trip to  Caumsett State Park
  • Wednesday October 10th – College Office Financial Aid Presentation, 5pm to 7pm
  • Thursday October 11th – 3pm to 5pm, Hispanic Heritage Celebration in the Courtyard

Special Announcement:
This week, after consultation with NEST+m’s School Safety Team, PTA co-presidents and teacher leaders, we will be making a slight shift to enhance our campus safety. Starting this week, between 8:30am and 2:20pm, entrance into our main-courtyard will take place through the Parking Lot gate. This move will ensure that all persons arriving at NEST+m during those hours will enter the central courtyard through one set of doors where they can be greeted by School Safety.

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.


Mark Berkowitz
