We hold in deepest prayer, the family of Brien and Jennifer Tilley as they experience the passing of Brien’s father, Louis Tilley. Mr. Tilley is also the father of former NFA parents, Linda Smith and Ruthanne Lambert-Lyons, and the grandfather of Sebastian, Branden, and Meredith as well as former students, David, Emily, and Bradley Smith ‘14 and Savannah Lambert ‘12. The Tilleys experienced the loss of their mother/grandmother, Mrs. Agnes Tilley, in April. May God grant eternal peace to Louis and Agnes Tilley and consolation to all who mourn their loss.

Norwood-Fontbonne Academy added 10 new photos to the album: Lighthouses!

Lighthouses are beacons of safety and often a symbol of places by the sea. Our 3rd graders studied Edward Hopper’s lighthouses in art class this year. May their watercolor images offer all of our families, faculty, and friends a message for safe and memorable travels during these summer months.
