Happy New Year to all who are celebrating the Lunar New Year!

Please join me in welcoming Sabrina Robin who will be joining the NEST+m community, starting tomorrow, as Assistant Principal (IA) within our Middle Grades. Ms. Robin’s DOE email is SFord6@schools.nyc.gov

As previously announced, tomorrow is our Grades 6-12 clerical day. On Tuesday, we launch Semester Two for students in Grades 6-12.

We look forward to seeing Grades 3-5 families for this week’s Family Friday. 

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.
