Christmas Mother Donations

Next week, November 8-12, NFE is collecting hats, gloves, and socks to support Henrico Christmas Mother. Items must be new and can be either youth or adult size.  Students can drop off donations in bins that will be placed outside the cafeteria.

Fox Fund

It's still not too late to donate to the NFE PTA Fox Fund!  We've seen participation from 44% of NFE families and we'd love to get closer to 100%.  Every donation earns an NFE car magnet!

Turkey Trot Coming Soon!

It's back!  The much-loved NFE Turkey Trot is coming soon on Saturday, November 20 at 8:30 a.m.  Join the fun and help us collect items for the food pantry at our sister school, Johnson Elementary.  

Volunteers are needed!  If you can help out, contact Lindsay Turpin or Kristin Wicichowski.

Reflections Update

We are at the peak of our Reflections year and are thrilled with all the wonderful creativity and submissions of our students. All entries were due Friday, October 22nd. We have inventoried about 60 submissions and are so proud of all our NFE students!!

Judging is currently taking place for our school. We plan to have a virtual Reflections ceremony on Wednesday, November 17th at 7 p.m. where we will announce the winners in each category. Winners in each category will have their work forwarded to the county HCCPTA competition. 

Thanks again for the incredible support from parents, teachers, administration, and PTA board members. Our students have submitted beautiful works and what they have submitted is nothing short of inspiring! Congratulations!

NFE Reflections Chair,

Jenny Scott

Chick-Fil-A is not currently holding their traditional spirit nights. However, if families go to the Short Pump Town Center location on November 9, November 23 or December 7 and mention "Nuckols Farm," a portion of the proceeds will come back to our school!
