What's Up At The Nest...


We had so much fun meeting our new and returning kindergarten parents at our open house on Wednesday night. We also met with our fabulous PTA presidents this morning to start planning fun events for the 2019-2020 school year. It's hard to believe we are already starting to plan for next year!

As Dr. Bein indicated in her email to all families this week, the district will be monitoring the weather next week very closely and will communicate with you about any school closings as soon as possible. Please stay safe and warm this weekend!
