SUBJECT: NFE PTA Newsletter - April 30, 2021




Hi, Fox Families-

As the end of the school year will be here before we know it, our PTA is preparing to transition to the 2021-22 PTA Board. The 2021-22 Executive Board slate will be approved this year with an electronic vote via Membership Toolkit. Please be on the lookout for this email soon! Your response is appreciated.

Speaking of appreciation, last week was Administrative Professionals Day. We are so appreciative of Mrs. Whitescarver and Mrs. Orr and everything they do on the Farm.

Tomorrow, May 1st, marks School Principal Day. In a particularly challenging year, we are fortunate that Mrs. Metzger and Mrs. Childress are so committed to our school community. Thank you for your hard work and dedication!

Beginning this Monday, May 3rd, we will celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. The week’s schedule has been communicated to families through room parents. While the schedule is a bit different this year, our fabulous teachers certainly deserve this special week to show them our appreciation and love. Thanks for ALL you do!

And finally, School Nurse Day falls on May 12th. Thank you, Nurse Logwood, for keeping our Foxes safe and healthy each day. We appreciate you!

Carrie Settar

2020-21 PTA President

      May 1, School Principal Day

It's been an unprecedented year full of twists and turns. Thank you Ms. Metzger and Ms. Childress for your leadership and commitment to NFE! 



- For any virtual students, 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.

- For any in-person student, clipped box tops can be turned to your teacher in a plastic Ziplock bag or we have included a blank collection sheet that can be printed off or feel free to tape clipped box tops to any sheet of paper.

- If you haven't done so already, please download and try the BTE 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. This can be done all year long...even during the SUMMER! 

The more families participate, the closer we come to meeting our goal in spite of the pandemic. Thank you for your efforts in supporting our school by participating in the Box Tops for Education Program. Together, we all can make a difference in the community and for our school!
