SUBJECT: NFE PTA Newsletter - March 5, 2021




Hi, Fox Families-

It has been a busy time on the Farm with recent schedule changes and the return to in-person learning. I hope the transition has gone well for all!

I was excited to see that a countywide Reflections ceremony took place virtually last week and some of our Foxes received county level awards! Congratulations to these award recipients and to all the Reflections participants. Way to go!

Our recent spirit night with Groovin’ Gourmets was a success, fun March Hospitality snack carts for faculty and staff are coming soon, and our yearbook and spirit wear sales continue for just a little while longer. Thank you to all the volunteers making these events possible!

2020-21 PTA President


      Spring Spirit Wear Sale!

We are excited to announce that NFE spirit wear is now available to order under "my forms/sign-ups" on  Membership Toolkit! Spirit wear is a GREAT way for our students, both in-person and virtual, to show support for our Nuckols Farm family. We even have adult sizes so there's something for the whole family! We've also brought back the garden flags and fox decals.

We will accept orders through Friday, March 12th. Place your orders now! 


             Signed Books by                Visiting Author Ginjer Clarke

Grades K-3 had an awesome virtual visit with non-fiction author Ginjer Clarke on Wednesday!  

Signed copies of many of her books are available for purchase at local bookstore bbgb through Friday, March 5.

Reminder to Update Membership Toolkit
With the changes related to in-person learning, we have updated teacher choices in MTK so that we have up-to-date class lists. Some parents will need to go back into MTK to affiliate their student(s) with the new, appropriate teacher so that they receive the most current class information.

To affiliate your children with their teachers: you can go to My Account (far right tab in sub-bar at the top of Home Page), Click on Family Information, it will show your info, then click Next Step, and your child(ren) should be there. There is a box to the right of your child's name for the teacher. Pick from the drop down menu. Make sure to SAVE your update! NOTE: if your child did not change teachers, nothing needs to be updated; only those that now have a new teacher.

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