The 13th Annual egg drop was held this morning as part of NFA’s Signature science curriculum. Sixth grade students designed contraptions to “house” an egg to protect it during descent and landing off the Fontbonne roof in the courtyard. Team "turtle" was declared the winner with cheers from NFA students after their egg was pronounced unbroken after multiple rounds.

Vibrant and energized staff, student and parent ambassadors, and alumni from the class of 2014, welcomed new families to NFA this week. The night was an opportunity for families to feel connected within the NFA community as well as re-affirm their choice of selecting NFA for their child for the following school year. Thank you to Director of Admissions, Erin Wallin, for hosting this inclusive event!
