Fox Families,

We have reached Winter Break!  It is now time to disconnect, relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy time with family.  Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful children with us each day.  We are so thankful for you and your family.  I want to wish each of you a safe, warm, and happy holiday season. 

We hope that you and your family will enjoy this fun NFES Sing Along our staff has created. 

Happy Holidays, Foxes!   

Mrs. Metzger





Hi, Fox Families-

It is hard to believe that this is the last PTA newsletter for 2020. What a year!

While volunteer opportunities have looked much different since September, we are still planning to fill a typical PTA Board for the 2021-22 school year. In January, please be on the lookout for an interest form detailing open positions. We would love to see you volunteer for the PTA Board next school year!

Best wishes for a safe, happy, and healthy Winter Break. See you in 2021!


2020-21 PTA President

           Be a Room Parent!

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered so far.  We do still need one Room Parent in the classrooms listed below. If you're willing to help out, right now, the role is really just as a liaison between the teacher and parents as needed! Please email Elizabeth Abbott if interested!

Library Helpful Hints

Have questions about the NFE Library?  Check this information page from Ms. Young and Ms. Lawrence.    



Due to Covid, we have placed a collection box outside of the front door of NFE. It is a plastic gray box clearly labeled as belonging to Boxtops.

-Boxtops can be turned in inside a plastic ziplock bag or we have included (as attachment in this email) a blank collection sheet that can be printed off and used at home.

-If the parent would like their child entered in to a random draw raffle for a prize, they may include the student’s name on their submission.

-All physical Boxtops should be turned in by our second deadline of the school year March 2021.  

- Please download and try the Boxtops App and encourage family and friends to as well. So long as a Nuckols Farm Elementary is selected we will receive credit.
