Nixon School - Spoiled In The Best Way!

Thank you to all of our families for providing us the most wonderful days throughout the year.

We are grateful to you for sharing your family with us! We look forward to seeing you each day!

This week was Staff Appreciation Week and we were pampered throughout the week with gifts of affirmation, sweets, flowers, food, laughter, and complete joy. Each day was a moment to notice the amazing gifts all around us.

Thank you always for your CARE and partnership. We are a very special school, our Nixon School is the place to be!

Dear Nixon Families,
Please find below the specific schedule for the upcoming MCAS tests. These are the exact dates your children will be taking the exam. Please encourage your child to get sufficient rest the night before any tests, to eat breakfast, and to extend their best effort. Children should also be encouraged to bring a small water bottle to school; hydration is a key to concentration. It is imperative that all children be in school during testing. Please try to avoid any appointments or trips that will prevent your child from attending school. As of the drafting of this letter, we have not received guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in how we will test remote students. More information will be forthcoming.

Information on the 2021 MCAS test requirements can be found here.
