A Message from our new SONYC Director
Greetings Nest+M parents, as some of you may already know Scott Percelay is no longer Program Director of the after-school program here. My name is Franshiny Urbaez and it is my pleasure to take the realms of the after school program for the 2018-2019 school year. My plan is to continue the legacy of excellence my predecessor has left here at Nest+M. I look forward to meeting you all this upcoming school year!
Sincerely, Franshiny Urbaez
SONYC Program Director
