SUBJECT: NFE PTA Newsletter - February 19, 2021




Hi, Fox Families-

The PTA Nominating Committee is working hard to fill open positions for the 2021-22 school year. Currently, the Fall Festival Co-Chair (2) and Cafeteria Coordinator (1) positions remain open. If you are interested or would like more information about either role, 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.

I know the next few weeks will be another time of transition for all administrators, faculty, staff, parents, and students. I also know that with patience and grace, the transition will be a smooth one!

Carrie Settar

2020-21 PTA President

Thank you for uploading your student and staff portraits!  We would not have a yearbook without your contributions!

If you did not have a photo taken by Strawbridge or did not submit a photo on eShare, your student’s name (or your name, if you are on staff) 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.



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.
