Letter to NEST+m Students & Families, Week of November 25

Dear NEST+m Students and Families,

Thank you for attending last week’s Parent-Teacher Conferences.

Our shared commitment to NEST+m’s core values—Intellectualism, Inclusivity, Collaboration and Exploration—enables our students to thrive within and beyond our K-12 school community.

This week we have three days of instruction prior to the Thanksgiving Recess. We hope that you have a happy and meaningful Thanksgiving.

Families: as we look ahead, please join us on Tuesday December 3, 2019, for our K-12 December Principal’s Coffee, 8:30am to 9:30am in the NEST+m Café.

This K-12 meeting will feature a public health presentation by Dr. Debra Friedman on the topic of Vaping.

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication,


Mark Berkowitz
