Our eager Kindergartners, Lunchbunchers, and students in grades 3 and 6 took part in Leap Up Day this morning. The purpose of this unique day is to introduce students to classrooms and teachers of the grades they will enter next year with joyful anticipation.
Last week, Mrs. Murray's first grade class participated in an interactive lesson using the SMART board. The students took part in a live video conference with a park ranger from Glacier Bay National Park as part of NFA's Signature science and social studies curriculum.
Yesterday, NFA students and staff attended a moving prayer service in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. They were reminded through prayer and song of his legacy and the hope that inspired his philosophy as well as the principles of Catholic social teachings.
Take a minute of your day to reflect on this beautiful video.
8th graders had a great time creating town maps using Google Drawings as part of NFA's Signature Spanish curriculum. The students paired up to give directions in Spanish to a specific location while their partner had to draw it!
Congrats to our 30 NFA swimmers who successfully competed in the Catholic Academy League Swim Meet over the weekend held at Germantown Academy. Thank you to Coach D'Orazio for his leadership with the team!
The Norwood-Fontbonne community mourns the passing of Mrs. Marilyn Miller who went home to God on January 5. Marilyn was a beloved teacher at NFA for over 25 years starting in 1972 and spending most of her time teaching 4th and 5th grades. She is remembered fondly by her NFA colleagues and is survived by her husband Jesse Miller, 2 daughters--Lorie and Linda, and a son alumnus James Miller '80. May God welcome her to her heavenly home and surround her family with comfort in the days ahead. Memorial donations in lieu of flowers are being directed to NFA. http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/philly/obituary.aspx?page=lifestory&pid=183511572
