SUBJECT: NFE PTA Newsletter - March 19, 2021





On Monday evening, March 15, 2021, the Virginia State PTA held its annual meeting and awards celebration.  At this virtual meeting, they announced the State Reflections winners. A big congratulations to our two NFE winners who both placed at the state level in the 2021 Reflections Program this year!  

  • Orielle Hall – Intermediate Literature – 1st Place, Outstanding Interpretation (winning entry is sent to the National level and results will be in May)
  • Hayden Gray – Intermediate Visual Arts – 3rd Place / Award of Merit

 We are very proud of all our Nuckols Farm Elementary students who participated in the 2020-2021 Reflections Program.  We are extremely proud of all the hard work, commitment, and beautiful reflections entries this year. 


Next year’s Reflections Theme will be:

“I Will Change the World By….”

       March Hospitality News

This week the Hospitality Committee showed teachers at NFE and Johnson Elementary how LUCKY we are to have them!  A big thank you to everyone who helped stuff these snack carts full of treats.

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.


Thank you for uploading photos to make this year's yearbook possible!  Photo collection is closed and we're working to include as many of the uploads as space allows.  

We would also like to thank our class volunteers for helping us get all of the important yearbook information out to their classes. We couldn't have done it without you!

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.
