Letter to Students and Families, week of March 25, 2019

Week of March 25, 2019


Dear NEST+m Students & Families,

As these first days of Spring remind us, there is so much promise and possibility.

Together we create NEST+m each day.

We create each day with our minds, our words, our actions and our relationships.

Thank you for valuing kindness, honesty and a commitment to our core values—intellectualism, inclusivity, collaboration and exploration.

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.

Mark Berkowitz

School Survey: Your voice matters. Your feedback matters.
For more information, please VISIT THIS LINK

Tips to get it done online:

  • You can look up your code once you select your language preference
  • Enter “New Explorations Into Science Technology and Math” not NEST+m
  • Child’s birth date must be entered in this format: 00/00/0000
  • Only 1 survey is needed per household, so if you have siblings just use the code for the eldest child
  • If you have child(ren) at another school you will need to do 1 survey for each school
  • Take 10 minutes and PLEASE fill out your survey TODAY!

Having trouble? Email pc@nestmk12.net for help.

Important notes about our 2018-2019 📅School Calendar📅

As you plan your family’s activities, please visit our Calendar page of the school website. You will see a Google calendar of our school events as well as other important items, such as the A/B Calendar, the Department of Education Calendar as well as the June New York State Regents Exam Schedules.
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.
