Letter to students and families, Week of May 6, 2019

Dear NEST+m Students and Families,

This is 🍎Teacher Appreciation Week 🍎!

Please join me in thanking our teachers for the countless ways in which they work to ensure that NEST+m’s students feel valued, recognized, inspired, supported and capable.

Together we create NEST+m each day.

Mark Berkowitz

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.
