Thank you to the many families who supported our annual Thanksgiving outreach collection. With the help of so many and our generous-hearted 6th graders, NFA was able to bring the fullness of God’s Thanksgiving to our dear neighbors at the “Viz.” Wishing all a bountiful and blessed Thanksgiving wherever you celebrate!

It was a perfect November day for a visit to the Morris Arboretum. The 3rd graders had a wonderful time discovering many treasures—trees, birds, sculptures, ferns, and historic buildings that all tell the story of this beautiful place. Plant identification, the science of plant growth, and fun arboretum facts enriched the learning of the morning!
