Please join us for an Open House at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy, Philadelphia's oldest Catholic and Independent elementary school, and recently-named 2014 National Blue Ribbon School. NFA offers families the choice between 2 curriculum paths: the Montessori program or the creative, interactive Primary program for ages 3-Grade 3, followed by challenging, active learning experiences in Grades 4-8. Students matriculate to the area's best Catholic and independent high schools. With service learning at all grade levels and 65+ annual co-curricular offerings on our 14-acre campus, NFA offers all the advantages of a large independent school in a small, nurturing community. NFA's diverse student and parent community shares an appreciation for Catholic values, service to others, and reflective decision-making. NFA Open Houses include tours of campus and an opportunity to observe students in classrooms. Please join us on Tuesday, April 21 at 9:00 am in the Fontbonne Commons located at 8900 Norwood Avenue in Chestnut Hill. Register by calling Erin Wallin at 215-247-3811, x204 or on line at: http://norwoodfontbonneacademy.org/admission/open-houses.
Dear Parents and Guardians, Peace. Sister Beatrice (Bess) Elizabeth DeSantis, who was principal at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy in the 1980’s, entered eternal life on Monday, April 6, 2015. Sister’s funeral will take place on Thursday, April 9th, with her viewing at 1:30 PM and her Mass of Christian Burial at 3 PM at Saint Joseph Villa.
During her leadership, Sister brought much joy and passion for the NFA mission to our school community. Together we hold Sister’s family and the Sisters of St. Joseph in our prayer and hearts as we experience the passing of Sr. Beatrice.
I ask that you share this information with other families and friends who knew Sr. Beatrice in her years at NFA.
