Letter to NEST+m Students & Families, Week of February 3

Dear NEST+m Students & Families,

Welcome to February!

Families, we look forward to seeing you at this week’s Principal’s Coffees which take place 8:30am in the NEST+m cafeteria.

Principal’s Coffees allow us to provide in-person announcements & highlights while hearing about the issues that are most important to you or your child.

This week in all three sessions we will be discussing New York State’s Next Generation Learning Standards and their alignment to practices already underway at NEST+m.

Thank you for your ongoing support and communication.


Mark Berkowitz
