Gardens & Grounds

Fall 2022 Clean Up  |  Sunday, October 16th  | 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Please join our Gardens and Grounds beautification team as we work to make our school a more beautiful environment for our students, staff, and families. Volunteer hours are minimal while you enjoy outside time with your students during a Spring or Fall event.  Our little neighborhood school is a lovely place for our students, families, staff, and local community to spend time and each Spring and Fall we like to add flowers and plants while cleaning up debris that has accumulated.  Please volunteer and join us to add a little extra charm to our school while continuing to create a learning experience for our students in the Learning Garden.



Typical projects are spring and fall clean-ups, planting new trees and shrubry, and general pruning of exisiting foliage.  Serving on this committee provides flexibility for any volunteer and a wide array of time and talents.  Both weekday and weekend work days are scheduled in the fall and spring. We encourage our Fox studens, parents, grandparents, kids, teens needing service hours, and Scouts looking for service projects to pariticipate.


To volunteer, please contact Gracie Herbert & Amber Steel, Garden & Grounds Committee Co-Chairs.



Gardens & Grounds also supports The Fox Garden

A learning space supported by the Nuckols Farm PTA


Imagine enjoying a leisurely walk with your children and grandchildren 25 years from now. You stroll over to the Nuckols Farm Garden, where a time capsule created today awaits you. This is your opportunity to make that possible future a reality.  The garden is designed to allow all grade levels to learn and grow both academically and as a school community.


The NFES faculty designed and constructed many lessons, activities, and resources that will provide numerous learning opportunities and lots of fun. The garden is located just off the sidewalk on the way up the hill to the track area/ big playground area.
