Parent Coffee for Families with IEPs and 504s

As part of Nixon’s Inclusive Schools Week activities, Principal Mary Pat O’Connell and Special Ed Parent Volunteer, Kimberly Eng Lee, invite you for tea/coffee on Wednesday, January 14th at 8:15am. Families with IEPs and 504s are especially welcome, as we share inclusion and community-building opportunities. We will gather in the staff lounge. Throughout this special week, staff initiate discussions with students about how we ensure that all students are made to feel part of our school and our community. Contact or for further information.

Extending the Hour of Code


Last week we celebrated Hour of Code and had close to 500 students spend at least one session coding. Seeing the excitement for the subject is very gratifying and if your children will have any screen time this winter break, you may want to consider having them go to these sites.

Additionally, the school has subscription to Raz Kids, Everyday Math, and various other resources linked from the computer lab website.

On behalf of the Nixon staff, we hope you have a joyous break with the family.
