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. These one week course offerings provided an opportunity for students as they prepare for high school where they will have greater choices in their academic path. Students had the choice of musical theatre, acapella, design thinking, healthy teen lifestyles, cerebral games, three decades of rock and roll, or be inspired to inspire. Thank you to our amazing teachers for opening the minds of creativity for our students!

The Cub Scouts of NFA's Pack 8891 participated in a Klondike Derby hosted by the Roosevelt District. This event was meant to instruct and test the cold weather outdoor skills of the scouts. After competing in nine stations, Pack 8891 was ranked number 5 of 13 participants. (An excellent ranking for a new Pack.) Each Pack required a sled, which the Cubs pushed and pulled through their stations. We thank Liz White for donating her skis which made up the basis for our sled.

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!
