Our new 4th grade team, Mr. Rockenbach and Mrs. Canuso, welcomed the new “Fabulous Fourths” last evening at a “get to know you” gathering. Fourth grade is a merging of our 2 educational paths (Montessori and Primary) and the children had a wonderful time reconnecting with one another and meeting their teachers. Children and their parents were informed on what to expect in fourth grade. The 2014-15 school year begins on September 3!!

A shout-out to Miss Wood who spent part of her summer volunteering at the SSJ Welcome Center in Kensington where she also serves on the Advisory board. Specifically, she taught a computer class to a group of immigrants from the Dominican Republic and Morocco, helping them work on things such as proper use of the mouse, keyboard skills, creating word documents and resume writing, as well as Internet and iPad use. The SSJ Welcome Center, a sponsored work of the Sisters of St. Joseph, serves the immigrant population through English classes, computer training, and citizenship preparation.

As we welcome July, the NFA Children’s Garden has had a full month of growth. Flowers are beginning to bloom on all our veggies and the daisies are almost ready to cut and use as small bouquets for our “dear neighbors”. The invitation to help in the garden sometime during the summer is open to all NFA students (and alums who would like to donate some time to their grade school alma mater). E-mail Sr. Marjorie at mlawless@norfon.org to schedule a day/time that is good for you. Be part of our Summer Outreach to bring joy and nutrition to our “dear neighbors”.

With heartfelt prayer we remember today, Mr. George Aspen, who went home to God a year ago, June 27, 2013. Mr. Aspen served the NFA community for 40 years as teacher, mentor, and administrator before his retirement in 2010. The NFA Development office has established The George M. Aspen Fund for the Greatest Good, which honors the extraordinary legacy of Mr. Aspen, who is remembered as a faith-filled man and dear friend to many. Please join us in paying “tribute to a titan” by remembering George and considering a contribution to this important fund. By doing so, you continue his great legacy and the mission of NFA.
