Dance at the Sock Hop
The PBIS Committee hosted a Sock Hop for students.
Students earn tickets throughout the year by making good choices
(showing kindness, acting responsibly, following the rules,
etc.) Those tickets can be used at the school store and for
events such as a popcorn & a movie event or the sock hop.
Poodle skirts, ankle socks, and saddle shoes could be seen
Even NFP's youngest Falcons dressed up for the Sock Hop.
Boys came styling with their jeans, white t-shirts and jackets.
These 5th graders wore scarves, hair bows, and smiles.
Judges declared these four students to be the winners for Best Dressed.
February 4 & 8, 2013
For Favorite Book Day, students wore their pajamas and brought
their favorite book to school. During a scheduled 30 minute
time slot, all students dropped everything, read a book and
enjoyed some hot chocolate.
These kindergarteners sat with a friend and read their books.
Whether lying down or under tables, students got comfortable
while they read their book.
Some students preferred to sit by others.
Others liked sitting alone while reading.

helps students academically.

Celebrates Safety Day

Police, Fire, and Rescue Teams visited NFP.
Students visited different stations to learn about what each
team does. This was done so that kids are not afraid to talk
to these important people.
These students learned about the K-9 dog that the police use.
Some kindergarteners got to hop onto a Raleigh Police motorcycle.
This boy looks quite comfortable driving a police car.
Posing with the police horses was a special
treat for these kindergarteners.
