Letter to students and families, Week of May 28

Dear NEST+m Students & Families,

I hope that you’ve had a meaningful Memorial Day.

Thank you to our Upper Grades Students for creating a wonderful Field Day, to our 5th Grade Students for your spirit of exploration during last week’s gradewide trip to Club Getaway, and to all of our Middle Grades Musicians for your performance during last week’s Spring Concert.

As we enter this final week of May:

Together we create NEST+m each day.

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.


Mark Berkowitz
Principal

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.
