Students in JLM had the opportunity to read "Charlotte's Web," watch the movie, and receive a copy of the book to take home as part of NFA's Signature curriculum. One of the books had a special message from Charlotte to the students! Charlotte invited JLA, JLB, and JLC to experience a live performance of "Charlotte's Web" at the end of May at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center.
Last week, 7th and 8th graders had the unique opportunity to experience NFA's exploratory courses.

Today, the NFA community celebrated St. Joseph's Day along with St. Patrick's Day! We were reminded through a morning prayer service, that we are ALL called to serve and live the SSJ mission and vision. Throughout the day, staff members gave little testimonials over the loud speaker about how they live out the vocation at NFA. The celebration continued with goodies for children and lunch for all staff members. We will be thinking of our Sisters of St. Joseph as they celebrate their feast day on Sunday!
