Nate Westover with the Franklin Institute’s traveling science show brought his particular brand of science to NFA yesterday. Everything about weather conditions, air, water, air pressure and what makes a hot air balloon rise were part of a fun, interactive and often comedic presentation. Thank you to the Student Council for arranging the school-wide assembly....learning science is fun!

Consider SCRIP gift cards for your holiday shopping! If each family or friend of NFA used SCRIP gift cards for even just a part of their holiday shopping (gifts, groceries, apparel and household needs), we could double what we sold last year ($47,527) and increase our rebates. SCRIP IS OPEN TO EVERYONE and the rebates benefit NFA! The SCRIP committee will deliver or mail to anyone who does not have children at the school. http://www.shopwithscrip.com
