Letter to NEST+m Students & Families, Week of December 3, 2018

Dear NEST+m Students & Families,

Thank you for joining us during last week’s Parent-Teacher Conferences!

Your partnership is valued and essential.

Did you know that NEST+m has a Sustainability Team—a team of teachers and faculty who are dedicated to ensuring that our classrooms and school community are zero waste? Our sustainability team has crafted a newsletter that requests your participation in our sustainability efforts. Please see it HERE.

As we’ve entered the December Holiday Season, please be mindful of the following public safety announcements.

  • Students are asked to leave valuable items at home. Valuables such as personal electronics must be off from 8:20am to 2:40pm and secured on a child’s person or locked using a padlock during the regular school day.
  • All schools within the New York City Department of Education align with the Citywide Behavioral Expectations to Support Student Learning (Discipline Code). This document, which is developmentally modified for Grades K-5 and 6-12 features Supports & Interventions as well as the range of disciplinary consequences that schools take to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our school community.

Finally, in the category of cross-cultural exchange, Happy Hanukkah from the late Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings to all who are celebrating Hanukkah which begins at sundown this evening.

Together we create NEST+m each day.

Let’s Soar!

Mark Berkowitz
