  • Engage. Spend quality time with your children through PTA events.



Fall Festival

October 27th. 6pm-8pm

Our fall festival was this past Thursday and was a huge success!! Many NFES families and staff enjoyed a wonderful night of games, activities, dancing and more. Jennifer Clark, our current PTA vice president, volunteered to chair the event, and worked very closely with our previous chair, Mrs. Tracy Rossi, to plan and coordinate an amazing event. The success of the event was also due to the help of Ms. Thompson, Ms. Min, many of the staff, and our parent and family volunteers. Thank you so much for providing donations and for volunteering at the event to help us provide a fun night for the students and their families. If you haven't already, please check out our Facebook page for photos from the event - and please feel free to add yours if you'd like!
