SUBJECT: NFE PTA Newsletter - February 5, 2021




Hi, Fox Families-

Today marks the end of National School Counseling Week. Our school is so fortunate to have Mrs.Crockett as our school counselor, working hard each day to support our Foxes!

The month of February also has another important week – Kindness Week! While our students may not currently be in the school building, I know they are still practicing kindness with their friends, classmates, teachers, families, and even the community. Keep up the kindness, Foxes!

Finally, many PTA positions still remain open for the 2021-22 school year. If you are interested in a position, please reach out to a Nominating Committee member (contact information is available on Membership Toolkit): Michelle Lipawsky, Jennifer Huddleston, Amber Manry, Kristy Babcock, or Kristin Wicichowski.

This has been an unusual year for all and we appreciate your continued support!

Carrie Settar

2020-21 PTA President

Student and Staff Portrait Collection

DUE by February 15

If you did not have Strawbridge photos taken, student and staff yearbook portraits may be uploaded to the HerffJones eShare app or HERE until Monday February 15th. Use code 10385 for NFES and be sure to select the button that says “Click here to upload a student PORTRAIT.” Include the name as it should be printed in the yearbook. 

  • The yearbook committee will make an effort to use Strawbridge photos instead of portraits that may have been previously uploaded to eShare. 
  • If you do not have a photo taken by Strawbridge or you do not submit a photo of your student on eShare, his/her name will be included in the yearbook after class photos. 
  • Due to any teacher changes that have or may occur this year, student photos will be grouped by grade in the yearbook.

       February Photo Themes

Remember to use the keywords in the description box. 

-SELFIE Show us your selfie!

-HAIR Whether it's bed head, a different hair color, or a crazy style - let's see your student's hair for Crazy Hair Day.

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.

Thank you for your efforts in supporting our school by participating in the Box Tops for Education Program.
