As we welcome July, the NFA Children’s Garden has had a full month of growth. Flowers are beginning to bloom on all our veggies and the daisies are almost ready to cut and use as small bouquets for our “dear neighbors”. The invitation to help in the garden sometime during the summer is open to all NFA students (and alums who would like to donate some time to their grade school alma mater). E-mail Sr. Marjorie at mlawless@norfon.org to schedule a day/time that is good for you. Be part of our Summer Outreach to bring joy and nutrition to our “dear neighbors”.

With heartfelt prayer we remember today, Mr. George Aspen, who went home to God a year ago, June 27, 2013. Mr. Aspen served the NFA community for 40 years as teacher, mentor, and administrator before his retirement in 2010. The NFA Development office has established The George M. Aspen Fund for the Greatest Good, which honors the extraordinary legacy of Mr. Aspen, who is remembered as a faith-filled man and dear friend to many. Please join us in paying “tribute to a titan” by remembering George and considering a contribution to this important fund. By doing so, you continue his great legacy and the mission of NFA.

NFA is excited about its brand new offering for early childhood education coming this fall! The option of a full-day program for our 3 and 4 year olds will debut in the upcoming 2014-15 school year. This new afternoon program flows from our current morning Pre-primary and Montessori preschools by blending the features of each. We will continue to have the same 5-day-a-week morning programs in both the Pre-primary and Montessori preschools. Contact Kimberly Cwietniewicz, Director of Admissions, for more information, 215-247-3811, x204 or kcwietniewicz@norfon.org. Please share this new option with friends, neighbors, and family members who might be interested in a full day educational program for their child.

Mr. Fesnak is also survived by their two children, NFA alums, Heather (Fesnak) Perez ‘93 and Andrew Fesnak ’97. May God grant eternal peace to Alan and consolation to Linda and her family in this time of great loss.

An NFA rising 5th grader (Class of 2018) recently shared her long "locks" for the purpose of helping others. The cut hair will be given to Locks of Love, a non-profit organization, whose mission is to provide hair pieces to financially disadvantaged children who have suffered hair loss due to a medical diagnosis. What a lovely way to serve 'dear neighbors'!
