Letter to NEST+m Students & Families from Mark Berkowitz Week of May 4, 2020

Dear NEST+m Students and Families,

Good Morning!

As we have entered May, with a continued focus on staying Balanced, Energized, Optimistic and Proud, we are writing to share words from the United States Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman.  Thank you to NEST+m teacher Ellen Sands for distributing Amanda Gorman’s words within the NEST+m community.

Next week our K-12 Assistant Principals will be facilitating “Principal’s Coffees” Meetings to connect with Grades K-5; 6-8; 9-12 parents, guardians and families. (see details below)

For Upper Grades students in AP courses, next week begins the AP testing period.

To continued health, wellness, teaching and learning!

Wishing you a week of good health and meaningful learning.


Mark Berkowitz
