SUBJECT: News from the Farm - January 8, 2021





Now is your chance to secure a personalized paver for your child or family! Our paver garden can be found near the big playground, beside the walkway. What an extraordinary way of celebrating your child and their years at Nuckols Farm with a paver of their own. It is a physical representation of their impact upon the wider world.  

Click HERE to order.

The new deadline is January 29.

All pavers will be installed by late April to early May, ready for our fifth graders end-of-year ceremony in June.  As they transition to middle school, many will be able to visit their paver now and again secure in the knowledge that their foundation at Nuckols Farm is formidable and unwavering.

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.
