Letter to NEST+m Students & Families, Week of October 7

Dear NEST+m Students & Families,

  • Thank you to all of our Middle Grades students, teachers and PTA volunteers for making last week’s Middle Grades Field Day a great success.
  • Thank you to our Upper Grades Students, Faculty and Coordinator of Student Activities Kate Thompson, for coordinating last week’s Upper Grades Club Fair. Visit our website to see a list of Clubs and their meeting dates/times.

Open Houses
Did you know? We are presently in the “recruitment season” for prospective Middle Grades and Upper Grades Students. NEST+m’s recruitment activities feature members of our administrative team, guidance team, student volunteers, and parents. We would like to invite parents and students to help out during forthcoming open house tours; please see the dates posted on our main page, and fill out this Google Form to express your interest.

Together we create NEST+m each day!

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication,
