Stone House students have constructed a pond and waterfall created from all repurposed and natural materials such as bamboo found behind the Big House, an old tire, rock dug up from their dig, plastic bottles, and wood. The pond relies on rain and a pump to keep it active and will have fish added in the spring. Working together to treasure the earth and each other!

Our fifth graders have a new Service Learning site—Visitation B.V.M. in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. Last week they visited “the Viz” for the first time and met up with some great new ‘dear neighbors’! NFA is partnering with “the Viz” through service learning, Thanksgiving outreach, and the Community Service Corps annual carnival next spring.

NFA's own Eva McGrath '11, currently a senior at Mount St. Joseph Academy, was in the company of Malala Yousafzai during her visit to Philadelphia. Malala is the recipient of the 2014 Liberty Medal for her extraordinary courage and “voice” for education for girls and gender equality. What an amazing experience and an honor for Eva to meet this remarkable young woman.

Recently NFA received notice from the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth that 55 of its 7th and 8th graders (62%) have qualified as Johns Hopkins Scholars, a notable distinction. A Johns Hopkins Scholar is a student who has attained a particular score on a standardized test. These students scored in the 93rd percentile or higher in nationally standardized measurements of reading, language, mathematics, science and social studies and achieved an A average in their sixth grade year. Congratulations to our excellent young scholars! #blueribbonschool
