Bulldog Spotlight of the Week
Natalie Taylor
Natalie Taylor is a current eighth grade student at New Foundations. This year was her first year at NFCS. She started school during a pandemic, knowing little to no teachers or students.

In the beginning it was a rocky transition, but Natalie has since flourished and shown just how much of a shinning star she is. Natalie is always there to help teachers and friends, she is respectful and hardworking. Natalie is very smart and tries her hardest at everything that she is handed.

Over this past year, Natalie has been a pleasure in class, and her teachers are always impressed with her personality and work! Natalie is one to always keep everyone laughing and make sure that everyone is having a great day!
