SUBJECT: NFE PTA Newsletter - September 10, 2021

Welcome back, New and Returning Fox Families, Administration, Faculty and Staff!

While this new school year isn’t quite as “normal” as we had hoped, I know that with a little patience and grace, we are going to have a great year!

If you haven’t done so already, please be sure to check out our PTA website at, where you will find important school and event information, forms, and a list of PTA contacts. Once your account is activated on our PTA Membership Toolkit site, you can join the PTA, buy spirit wear, and donate to the Fox Fund. Please remember to update your child’s teacher as well in your profile to receive all classroom communications. 

Don’t forget to check out our PTA Facebook page at to stay on top of happenings around the Farm as well.

If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email at

Kim Apollony

2021/22 PTA President

Support the Fox Fund

The Fox Fund is our primary fundraiser for the year. Thanks to generous donations over the years, we've been able to host a variety of authors and cultural arts programs, support the purchase of reading instructional activities and Promethean boards, provide classroom and grade-level funding for teachers, and more. Tax-deductible donations to the Fox Fund can be made through the PTA website.

A huge thank you to NFE dad and owner of Barker Designs LLC, Brian Barker, who designed the artwork for this year's Fox Fund car magnet (pictured at left)!  All Fox Fund contributors will receive a magnet in appreciation of their donation.

Assignment Books

ATTENTION 3rd, 4th, 5th grade parents!

Assignment Books are available for purchase via Membership Toolkit ONLY.  No in person sales are available at this time (due to limiting people in/out of the office during hectic start of school).

The form is active and should show up in "MY FORMS" in your account and it will ONLY show up if you have a 3rd 4th or 5th grader.

Books will be delivered to classrooms as orders come in!

If you have issues, email Elizabeth Roetger.
