Principal's Message

Welcome back for another year at the Nest!  We are excited about the new school year and we have high expectations that our students will achieve success both academically and socially this year!
To join the Principal Ford’s REMIND text the words @sweagles19 to 81010. School-wide announcements will be sent.
There are several different ways in which you can communicate with your student’s teacher. Class Dojo is our primary communication platform between teachers and students.  You can also send your student's teacher an email to their school email address, or contact the school at (901) 465-8317 to schedule a meeting.
Our school has a PTO Facebook page.  It is private, so you must request membership approval. To protect the safety of our school, you must answer the membership questions to have your request approved. We want to know that you have a connection to our school in some way, either as a family member, close friend, or community supporter.
This is the portal in which students will have access to all of the online platforms that is used by students in the Fayette County Public Schools District.  If your child is a new student, you will have to wait until their information has been entered into Skyward. Once this happens and the system refreshes overnight, they will have access to Clever.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us! We are more than willing and happy to assist in any way we can! Even though this is all very new to us, we are looking forward to a wonderful school year! Thank you for your support!
Educationally yours,
Fabre K. Ford, Ed.D.
