Letter to students and families, Week of June 17

June 16, 2019

Dear NEST+m Students & Families,

Happy Fathers Day to all of our Fathers!

This week we begin the final eight days of our 2018-19 school year.

Some reminders:

  • Every day matters. K-7 students are expected to report to school each day.
  • Grades 8-12 students begin the Regents Testing Period and will report to school as previously articulated.
  • Students & Families: Please be in touch with your child’s teachers if you have any questions regarding your child’s academic performance and/or social-emotional wellbeing at school.
  • Students with lockers are expected to empty their school-issued lockers by the end of day tomorrow, June 17th.
  • Students with school-issued textbooks or supplies are expected to return these as soon as possible and/or immediately following state exams.

Together we create NEST+m each day: Let’s have a strong finish to our 2018-19 school year!

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.


Mark Berkowitz
