K-8 News & Events
Please read through the important dates and information that was shared in Mrs. Unegbu's News & Notes email from April 09.

Activity Highlight: Students in the K-8 building wore blue to show their support for Autism Awareness. All K-8 students had an opportunity to attend a virtual Autism Awareness Assembly that featured special guest Kerry Magro. Kerry shared his experience with autism and talked about how important it is to spread awareness and kindness. He also discussed his appearances on television and working as a consultant with major media companies and celebrities. Kerry's message was truly inspiring and he even took time to answer questions directly from NFCS students.
