Letters from The Porch - Dr. Killeen's Blog

This latest Letters from The Porch post is really more of a welcome. Welcome to our new website! We have flipped the switch! It’s been several months in the making, but I think it has been worth the wait.

Norwood-Fontbonne Academy partnered with Finalsite, a leader in school website development, to create a site that I think truly showcases all that is great about NFA — our students, faculty and staff, parents and alumni. They have made our school an amazing place of learning and love for almost 100 years.

Navigation for our site has been streamlined, which means less clicks for you. It’s also responsive, so whether you view it on a laptop, tablet, or phone, your experience will be improved. Calendars can be filtered by topic and allow for downloads and alerts. We have also partnered with Ravenna to offer online admissions. This is just the beginning! We are rolling out phase one now, and, for our current families, we'll be working on phase two rollout over the summer, to even further expand our website capabilities.

Thank you to all of our faculty and staff who have collaborated on this initiative. We will continue to expand content and welcome your feedback. If you have trouble finding what you are looking for on the site, please contact Trish Bradley Lockett. So, explore our new website, and let me know what you think. I think you’ll really enjoy it!

One of the highlights of NFA's recent Winter Recognition Assembly was the seventh grade media studies video, featuriing our students and the importance of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a collection of 17 goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.” These goals were set by the United Nations General Assembly, and are slated to be achieved by 2030.
