SUBJECT: NFE PTA Newsletter - December 3, 2021

Hello Fox Families,

I hope you all had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving break! And Happy Hanukkah to those that celebrate!!

With the holiday season upon us during anotherchallenging year, I have seen a few comments/questionsabout faculty and staff gifts. If you choose to purchase a gift or send a card/picture to a NFES faculty or staff member, we encourage you to do so electronically. Alternatively, consider sending something in with your student. Given current restrictions, we hope to alleviate large numbers of visitors in and out of the office.   

If you have any questions or if I can help in any way, please just let me know. Thank you!

Making Spirits Bright

As of today, there is one child left on the NFE Giving Tree for Johnson Elementary.  Sign up HERE to make her holidays special.

All gifts should be wrapped and placed in a garbage bag with a tag that has the gift's corresponding number on it.  Deliver to NFE on December 8th or 9th between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.  

PTA News
A Message from Gardens and Grounds

Just a friendly reminder that several holiday plants can be dangerous for our furry family members! These include poinsettias, amaryllis, mistletoe, and holly.  They add a lot of fun and festiveness to our homes, but they should be kept up and away from our pets.

Fox Fund

It's still not too late to donate to the NFE PTA Fox Fund!  We've seen participation just under 50% NFE families and we'd love to get closer to 100%.  Every donation earns an NFE car magnet!
