Pre-primary students and Kindergarten had a special visit from the Elmwood Park Zoo thanks to the Smith Family! They purchased "Zoo on Wheels" at this year's Razzmatazz. The students asked wonderful questions and were very excited to meet three special animals! We thank and treasure all our generous families and donors for supporting NFA's Signature curriculum, arts, and athletics whether at NFA events or through the Annual Appeal. There's still time to make your investment!

The NFA Bear had a wonderful time yesterday at the Chestnut Hill Home and Garden Festival. She enjoyed catching up with many families, alums, and dear neighbors as they strolled the Avenue! Many young, eager, children loved how the Bear loved inclusively by sharing her treats with them!

Last night NFA held its "Night of the Performing Arts" in the Commons with performances by NFA's piano students, band, Note-ables, and members of the Forensics team. Many of our alums found their musical roots at NFA and continue their success in the Arts. Throwback Thursday to three that are striving for the 'More:' Andrew Shaw '08, Fred Gerngross '08, and Erica Lee Cianciulli '10!

Continue to give “roots” to our NFA students through your generous gifts to the Annual Appeal!

Last week, Ms. Montler's second grade class participated in an interactive lesson using their display station. The students had the opportunity to Skype with "dear neighbors" from Japan! They toured a Japanese grocery store and asked many interesting questions as part of NFA's Signature curriculum.

The sun was shining as the fifth and sixth graders welcomed over 80 Grandfriends in the Commons last Friday. Students' cheerful faces welcomed their guests with a prayer service, fun interviews, and a little round of 50's trivia while enjoying a light breakfast before classroom visits. A special thank you to our Event Manager, Christie Meyer, volunteers, and NFA staff who helped make this a memorable day for our students and their special friends!

Help us reach for the 'MORE'! We are 90% of the way to our goal of $200K in the 2017-18 Annual Appeal. Consider an investment by renewing a previous gift, honoring a special mother for Mother's day, or commemorating our 97th school year with a gift of $20.18. All gifts of any amount add up to make a significant difference for students and staff. Your participation is everything! Click here: https://norwoodfontbonneacademy.org/donation-form

Yesterday, we celebrated the feast of the Ascension of Jesus and shared inclusive love as a school for the last time at liturgy this school year. Our second graders joined in the Eucharist with the NFA community for the first time and our eighth graders were blessed as they prepare for graduation in June.

We take pride in the development of NFA's aspiring writers over the years. One of our eighth graders covered a story for her field hockey league and the article was published! We are so proud of her accomplishments as part of NFA's Signature English language arts curriculum!

NFA’s five year-old students gathered for a white tablecloth luncheon and dance in the Commons Dining Room last week. Displaying the utmost of grace and courtesy, they shared polite conversation while dining on a delicious lunch. This annual celebration brings all our five year-olds together as most of them culminate their years in the "houses."
