Dear NEST+m Students & Families,

We hope that you have had a meaningful and rejuvenating Spring Break.

We look forward to welcoming you back to school tomorrow.

This Tuesday morning we will take NEST+m’s annual whole-school photo during Period 1. Students: Please report to your Period 1 classroom, after which we will enter our courtyard.

On Wednesday & Thursday, students in Grades 3-7 will take the NY State Math Exam.

Please save the date for our annual Spring Curriculum Showcase on Wednesday evening, May 15th. Additional Details forthcoming.

Together we create NEST+m each day.

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.

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.
