SUBJECT: NFE PTA Newsletter - April 2, 2021




Hi, Fox Families-

While some weeks have seemed to move slowly, it is hard to believe that Spring Break is already here!

As we move into the last nine weeks of the school year, the PTA hopes to vote on the 2021-22 Executive Board soon. We are still currently looking for a volunteer to fill the President-Elect role. Please reach out to me if you might be interested or would like additional information.

I hope our entire Nuckols Farm community has a relaxing, well-deserved break!

Carrie Settar

2020-21 PTA President

2021 NFE Teacher Awards

Congratulations to our Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Amber Saunders (pictured), our Christie Award Winner, Mrs. Carla Allinder, and our First Year Teacher of the Year, Miss Molly Jesseman!  They were chosen by their peers for these awesome awards!




April is School Library Month!

*Flashlight Fridays!  We will provide each student with a finger flashlight!  Teachers will take time on Fridays to turn out the lights and let students use their finger flashlights to read!  Students should have books and finger flashlights ready on Fridays in April (after our spring break).  

*Staff Picks!  Check out these teacher and staff favorites!  Have you read any of them?

*Twitter Love!  What do you love about your school library?  If you have an answer, fill out this formto share.  Ms. Young will post your response on our Twitter account @FarmFoxesLib.

*Pajama Flashlight Friday, April 30th!  Wear pajamas and have slippers, and we’ll cozy up and read with our finger flashlights.

Check out our Virtual Library and our Library Flyer for information on checking out books and other library resources, activities, and lessons.

-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.

- Please download and try the Boxtops App and encourage family and friends to as well. It's free and easy to use. Please select Nuckols Farm Elementary so that our school can receive credit on scanned submissions.
