Letter to students and families, Week of June 24

Dear NEST+m Students and Families,

As we enter these final days of our 2018-19 school year, thank you once again for your commitment to each other and to our entire NEST+m community.

As our 5th graders made clear during last week’s Moving Up Ceremony, there is so much to be proud of.

This week we turn in celebration of our rising 8th graders and graduating 12th graders. These celebrations will take place on Wednesday.

This week also remains an Upper Grades Regents Testing Week with Chemistry and Physics exams occurring on Tuesday.

As previously announced, Wednesday is a half-day for students. Students will be dismissed at 11:30am.

Yearbooks will be distributed on Monday, June 24th starting at noon.
Please be patient as PTA volunteers work to get the boxes opened and the books sorted and distributed as fast as they can. Yearbook questions can be directed to yearbook@nestmpta.org.

Report cards will be distributed on Wednesday, June 26th.
If your child does not receive their report card on Wednesday, June 26th, you can pick it up at school from our Parent Coordinator on Thursday, June 27th or Friday, June 28th, from 8:30am-3:30pm. Any remaining report cards will be mailed home during early July.

Summer reading assignments for Grades 6-12 will be posted on the school website on Wednesday, June 26th.
Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.


Mark Berkowitz
