SCHOOL CLOSED: MONDAY MARCH 4; Letter to Students & Families, Week of March 4, 2019

Dear NEST+m Students and Families,

All NYC public schools are CLOSED tomorrow, Monday, March 4, due to severe weather conditions; please stay safe and warm!

Coming up this week:

This week NEST+m opens its doors on Thursday evening and Friday afternoon for our March 2019 Parent-Teacher Conferences.

Families: We look forward to meeting with you.

Here are some questions to consider asking during parent-teacher conferences:

  • What makes my child happy in the classroom?
  • Does my child have at least one friend in their classroom?
  • In what ways does my child exhibit a Growth Mindset?
  • in what areas has my child not yet mastered the content or skills of this course or unit of study?

Thank you for approaching conferences with optimism and positivity.

Please visit this page of the PTA website to sign-up for a conference time:

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.

The June Regents exam testing schedule (June 18-25, 2019)  is very late this year; some 8th grade students and Upper Grade students are going to have Regents exams during the last week of school. 12th grade and 8th grade graduation ceremonies are going to be on June 26th, the very last day of school! Please keep this schedule in mind as you make your family’s summer plans.
